Microsoft delayed its Cross-browser support of Dynamics CRM mobile client from Q2 2012 to Q4 2012. In a blog entry, Microsoft's Dennis Michalis stated, after listening to the feedback from customers and partners "we are delaying availability of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Mobile and cross-browser support." "These were previously scheduled to be delivered in the Q2 2012 Service Update, and we now plan to deliver them in the service update scheduled for Q4 2012," he wrote.
As a results Cross-browser support will be available with the Q4 2012 Service Update. "At the heart of the Q4 release we are focused on delivering a more compelling customer experience in mobile and cross browser. A Q4 2012 Service Update Release Preview Guide detailing the new capabilities and interface will be published this summer," Michalis added.
Adding, that on July 19th, the seceduled Q2 release will include Microsoft SQL Server 2012 support, Industry templates and certifications for online service.
He also notes, that the no currently announced Q4 2012 capabilities will be deferred as a result of this decision.
"As a part of our bi-annual release cadence we work on multiple service updates in parallel. Merging the Q2 and Q4 2012 releases allows us to provide a better overall experience by combining cross browser support with user interface enhancements already planned for the Q4 2012 Service Update."
In addition to adding mobile support to its platform, Microsoft also will be stepping up its cross-browser support for Dynamics CRM users. With the Q4 update, "users will have a choice of Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox and Safari running on PCs, Macs and iPads."
