Platform updates overview – NAV2009

As mentioned earlier, I have split up the Platform Updates list into the different versions of NAV. Here is the NAV2009 version.

When going through the KB articles, I also found this one quite interesting: A costing hotfix rollup is available for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009. It doesn’t really qualify as a “Platform Update”, but still, I think it’s very interesting to give it enough attention.. .
