Application Enhancements

Dive Deeper into Dimensions

Dimensions can now be used throughout the application, and it is simple and easy to add an unlimited number of dimensions. However, until now, it has been difficult to correct errors if a user-specified the wrong dimension. So, with this release wave, you can correct dimensions for G/L entries to make sure that your financial reporting gives you the insights that you want without having to make notes of temporary data entry mistakes.

Modern Development Tools

The latest releases have moved the base application to AL, improved the debugging experience, and delivered significant internal work on stability and how to handle extensions. Microsoft also delivered new language capabilities such as interfaces, and they continue investing in developer productivity and asks from the community. This current release targeted report extensibility, which was the top-voted ask from the user community for Business Central.

The 2021 Release Wave 1 also brings improvements to performance in VS Code, extension lifecycle telemetry for ISVs, additional interface functionality, and automation and streamlining of the process for submitting apps to AppSource.

Also, the upgrade process has been improved to include validation of per-tenant extensions, reducing unnecessary upgrade failures, and alerting app publishers about extensions that will be impacted by a future upgrade sooner for a more seamless upgrade experience.
