Cumulative Update 4 Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012
Microsoft announced on Monday this week that they have released Cumulative Update 4 (CU4) for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 – it applies to both the Release-To-Manufacturing (RTM) release and the Feature Pack 1 (FP) release. This cumulative update is inclusive of the fixes release in Cumulative Updates 1, 2 and 3, so if you haven’t applied any of those, you can apply CU4 directly.
When I was last in Seattle in October, the product team members were highly suggesting that customers put Cumulative Update 4 on when it releases because there were a number of high-value bug fixes that should keep customers from running into situations that had already been discovered.
As Brian King states in the comments of the release post on the Sustained Engineering blog article, the cumulative update release and the AX 2012 R2 release are different branches, so many of the bug fixes in CU4 are in 2012 R2, but not all.
For more information on the release, please see the Knowledge Base article on CustomerSource and PartnerSource at this link: https://mbs2.microsoft.com/Knowledgebase/KBDisplay.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;2765124.
