What’s New and Planned

This topic lists features that are planned to release from October 2019 through March 2020.

Modern developer tools

For the 2019 release wave 2, Business Central retires the legacy development tool, C/SIDE, and development language, C/AL, replacing them with a modern solution based on Visual Studio Code, Azure DevOps, and an AL language that supports an extension-based approach to customization.

Empower ISV acceleration

We will focus on empowering ISV acceleration in developing new solutions, moving IP from the source code customization model to Business Central. The ecosystem is extremely broad, but a small concentrated set of ISVs drive the majority of the sales and usage. We will focus on enabling those core ISVs.

Design for extensibility

Service fundamentals

Laser focus on performance, reliability, supportability and security is essential to ensure that service quality remains ahead of the growth in service usage. Accessibility, already in a strong position, must be preserved.
