2016.2 Field Test

Primary tabs

I am pleased to announce the field test of Caché and Ensemble 2016.2 -  an exciting new release with improvements on many different fronts.

The entire product team at InterSystems looks forward to your participation in the field test and feedback over the coming months.

Some of the more profound changes in 2016.2 include:

  • Atelier - the new multi-platform IDE for Caché, Ensemble and HealthShare.
  • Introduction of a DOCUMENT data model (extending the reach of our multi-model capabilities)
  • Concurrent management and configuration of many servers

As always, there are a host of scalability and performance improvements, including improvements to the core database, ECP and SQL.  And hundreds of smaller improvements and corrections.

Summary details of these changes can be found HERE.

In the next couple of days, Product Managers will post several updates with greater detail on how you can use the improvements of 2016.2 to improve your Caché and Ensemble based solutions.

We all welcome your comments, questions and feedback.


Does this mean there won't be a 2016.1 ?

If not what is the expected release period of 2016.2 ? The name suggests Q3 2016 ?

2016.1 has been in field test for quite some time.  It is a small number of weeks away from GA.

Is there an expectation for when 2016.2 will be released for production?
