Microsoft preparing Dynamics NAV 2013 R2 - formerly 'Sicily' - for late 2013

The Microsoft Dynamics NAV release codenamed Sicily will become Dynamics NAV 2013 R2, Microsoft revealed at WPC 2013 this week.  General availability is planned for the fourth quarter of 2013.

NAV 2013 R2 will meet the NAV team's goal of beginning an annual release cadence. As described last October, the new release will introduce an update client interface that better matches Windows 8 styling. It will feature an updated look and feel that can build in more charts and reports with streamlined drilldown.  The new release also promises more hosting platform support and better compatibility with Office 365.

Here's a link worth reading (slightly OT, but maybe not):
Just a side note: From my point of view, a lot of people responsible for selling the direction NAV takes since 2008 are no longer at Microsoft. But this doesn't seem to improve anything.
The sad part is that this way it won't take long for NAV to disappear (4 years from now). People will have to put their skills to good use somewhere else.

SCNR, but with best regards
