“A beta VPC image for GP11.0 will likely be available in the winter of 2009/2010”
In reading carefull through the latest blog article posted by the Microsoft Dynamics GP Product Management & Marketing team, I found, burried at the end, likely timeframes for the availability of “v11” beta and General Availability demo images. Ben Courin, author of the article, says:
“In the August/September timeframe, we will be releasing a differencing disk with the Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 SP4. No additional improvements, just the SP install. We will then take a few weeks off from building images, and then turn our focus to the Microsoft Dynamics GP 11.0 VPC/Technical Demonstration toolkit. This project will be built from scratch/from the ground up. It will NOT be an upgrade of the current Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 series of vpc’s. A beta VPC image for GP11.0 will likely be available in the winter of 2009/2010 and then a GA image will likely be available at Convergence 2010.“
While the article does not specify the RTM timeframe, one can guess that it will probably be on or before Convergence 2010 in Atlanta, GA. For now, partners can download the new and fully loaded Dynamics GP v10 SP3 VPC image.
Until next post!
