Dynamics 365 Business Central 2019 wave 2 – Released

The 2019 release wave 2 for Business Central delivers plenty of new features and capabilities.

Dynamics NAV customers upgrading to Business Central on premises will enjoy the unique flexibility to continue running on premises, move to the cloud, or adopt a hybrid approach.

You can download the product ​​​from Microsoft Product Download Page. Select your desired country link to download product specific to your country. You will require partner source or customer source login to access.

Direct link to W1 Product is here.

With the 2019 release wave 2, users access Business Central in the browser, Windows 10 desktop app, mobile apps on Android and iOS, or in Outlook.

The 2019 release wave 2 is the first version that does not include the classic development environment (also known as C/SIDE) or the Dynamics NAV Client connected to Business Central (also known as the Windows client).

The modern developer experience based on Visual Studio Code now supports developing large apps such as the base application from Microsoft, and so C/SIDE is discontinued for Business Central going forward.

Business Central 2019 release wave 2 moves to the Modern Support Lifecycle Policy effective October 1, 2019. This policy requires that the customer maintain the Enhancement Plan and deploy updates as noted in the servicing policy.

The Modern Lifecycle Policy requirements are defined below:

  1. Customers must stay current as per the servicing and licensing requirements published for the product or service.
  2. Customers must have the rights to use the product or service.
  3. Microsoft must currently offer support for the product or service.
