Microsoft has released the SharePoint Server 2016 Beta 2 today. As Jeff Teper mentioned during the European SharePoint Conference keynote, this release contains 99% of the RTM build features.
Let’s see what’s new in SharePoint Server 2016 Beta 2
- Support for Microsoft Identity Manager 2016 to enable bi-directional synchronization and common identity scenarios.
- Enhanced support for new Data Loss Prevention capabilities.
- The extensible App Launcher delivers common access across applications and solutions in Office 365 and SharePoint 2016.
- Profile Redirection enables profiles to be extended. For example to “Delve About Me”.
Please note that you won’t be able to upgrade your SharePoint Server 2016 IT Preview farm to Beta 2. SharePoint Server 2016 Beta 2 cannot be upgraded to RTM and should not be used in production environments.
