Microsoft has revealed that the next version of Dynamics GP at a recent event, and attendees report that it is due for release on October 1. The new version, referred to as "GP Next" will include nearly forty new features and system enhancements. The product will also adopt the Modern Lifecycle Policy , the same one used by Office 365, Azure, and Dynamics 365.

The news trickled out last week from Fargo where Microsoft hosted the GP Tech Conference on its campus.
