This is a message to you all from Dan Brown General Manager, Dynamics NAV:

Hi, everyone.

Over the past several months the NAV team has worked hard getting ready to release Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013. We’ve run hundreds of thousands of performance-, stress-, unit- and regression-tests daily. We’ve monitored the comments you’ve made on our first-ever public Beta of NAV and incorporated the feedback as much as possible. And, we’ve worked with partners bringing several customers live on NAV 2013. All of this has been to ensure that the product is of the highest possible quality before we ship. We’re looking forward to getting the RTM version in your hands as soon as possible!

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 is probably the biggest launch of the product ever. It concludes the transition from the classic client/server 2-tier proprietary architecture developed in the 1990’s to a state-of-the-art, 4-tier Microsoft architecture capable of rendering multiple clients and facilitating multiple modes of integration. It also means that Microsoft Dynamics NAV now is a full-blown member of the Microsoft server family and adheres to all Microsoft standards in terms of security, reliability and scalability. Finally, it signals the beginning of a new era of “NAV in the cloud,” opening up an array of new opportunities using NAV and integrating it with Microsoft and non-Microsoft products.

With Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 coming out this fall, the NAV TechDays conference is a great opportunity for everybody in the NAV developer community to learn more about and get ready for the release. All the sessions at NAV TechDays are technical and long enough to allow the speakers to go into enough detail for the developers in the audience to understand what the features in the product are about and how to use them. Since NAV TechDays is a conference for developers by developers with deep technical content, we are sending some of our best developers who designed and wrote the code to attend and speak at the conference. If you have questions about your favorite feature, you will have an opportunity to give your feedback on Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 and provide input on what you would like to see in future releases.

I hope to see you all at NAV TechDays in Antwerp, Belgium on September 27th.

-Dan

Great questions

The four tiers are:

Database tier
Service tier
Web tier
Client tier

When running RTC the client and web tiers are collapsed into one tier

NAV 2013 is propably the biggest release in NAV history and introduces a lot of improvements and changes. This includes improvements to the designers (including the page editor) which up until now have been more or less untouched since we introduce C/SIDE in 1995.

It is not possible to do an technical upgrade between 2009 R2 and NAV 2013, because of classic removal, unicode,, etc. - but doing a real upgrade should be worth the while:)

I encourage you all to follow Rashed's advice to download and play around with the beta.

....Or even better join us at NAV Techdays on September 27th and 28th!

Michael

Really excited to read the message from Dan and we are waiting for the product launch.
PBC will localize NAV 2013 into Japanese / Simplified Chinese / Traditional Chinese (Hong Kong) version !

We are planning to upgrade our NAV 4.0 to 2009 next week. This upgrade alone is a major headache because many of our customized enhancements cannot simply be copied into 2009 without modification.

Can't imagine the headache we will be facing if we decided to upgrade to 2013. Also heard that C-Side is no longer support in 2013? What will happen to NAV developers who know only C-Side but not Dot Net?

You should'nt be scared :wink:
If you're going to use the Role Based Client then you're transforming you're forms and alot of the work will be over.
If you're also converting your reports to RDLC layout, then the other big part is done, and you're about ready for a 2013 upgrade.

2013 only supports RTC client and RDLC report.
But the language C/AL continues, some functions are retired but new ones are made available.(I don't know how extensive you're modifications are, might not affect you at all).

The great thing is, that with RTC-only, we can seriously begin to use .net interoperability in C/AL. But no one is forcing you

2. RTC Debugging

Thanks
