What release was that in?


In the past I have seen blogs on version numbers matching to ConfigMgr release names and such and those have been handy for various things.  With our new release cadence I'm finding it hard to remember what feature is in a given release, however.  To that end I'm starting a table to look up and remind myself what came out when.  I decided I would share with the rest of the world while I was at it.

I split this up for released products and technical previews.  Tech previews of SCCM may have features that are changed in later releases or not in a full release if the feature is not considered to be ready.

As new production releases are put out I will age out the older tech preview information to keep the blog relevant.

Hopefully I will be able to keep this up-to-date for years to come.  If I missed some key thing you would like to see added please let me know.  The list of actual changes can be very big and I'm focusing only on the larger feature changes.  Details about many of these can be found through https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt757350.aspx.

    Usefull ref – would also be nice to have another column showing the date it was released (next to the build number)

    1. Neo says:

      Alistair… the build number is the date. For example 1602 refers to February, 2016 and 1606 is June, 2016.
