As with any forward-looking presentations or pre-release guides, any of this information can change prior to actual live release of the respective product versions. And you can probably expect a collection of smaller enhancements to be included with each release that aren't mentioned here. But it does provide us with a good idea of where Sage 100 is headed now and into the near future.
