Questions about Dynamics-Nav 5.0?

One of the most significant developments in this release is the new three-tier architecture.

The first tier – the new Microsoft Dynamics client – will present data with a modern user experience.
The Microsoft Dynamics client will run on both the Microsoft Windows platform,
including Microsoft Vista and Microsoft Office 2007, and inside Microsoft SharePoint allowing for remote access.

With the release of 5.0, Microsoft Dynamics NAV will be the first Microsoft Dynamics solution with a client based on the new Microsoft Dynamics tools technology.
In addition, the Microsoft Dynamics tools platform will help us to accelerate development breakthroughs for subsequent product releases and will empower partners to build their own solutions faster and more efficiently.

The middle tier, the Service Tier will be used to service the clients and to enable web services to external or third-party applications.
Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0 will be built
with Microsoft .NET.

The Microsoft Dynamics client has been built using state-of-the-art technology and runs on a leading industry database platform, Microsoft SQL Server 2005.

This means that customers will be able to realize all the latest innovations and benefits that the Microsoft Dynamics client and Microsoft SQL can offer as one of the most advanced platforms in the industry.

What improvements have been made to C/SIDE in 5.0?

Improvements include support for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP),
new C/AL
functions such as Block Indent and an easier way to return error text to C/AL; plus support for multiple graphical formats beyond the BMP format (such as JPG, WMF, GiF) that can be stored in the database and viewed on forms and reports. And, improvements have been made to increase performance when Microsoft Dynamics NAV runs on the Microsoft Microsoft SQL Server database. These include optimizing indexes, FIND and cursors in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, and reducing SIFT usage
