“Please refer to the official Microsoft communication here and here for the available channels for getting the final product version. ”
This is :
“This major new version of Identity Manager is an overall modernization of capabilities and experiences relative to the previous version, FIM 2010 R2.
We added programmatic interfaces such as a RESTful API and PowerShell commands, and expanded the supported operating systems, server products and browser versions based on customer input.
Additionally, we’re very proud about some of the innovations introduced in this product version, in the areas of Security (privileged identity management), Hybrid identity management, new self-service capabilities, and new certificate management experiences.
For more extensive information about Microsoft Identity Management features and themes, check out previous posts in this blog: here, here, here, and here.
Great news for Windows 10 users! Microsoft Identity Manager not only adds experiences for Windows 10, but actually it has greater value for you, because it leverages the intrinsic Windows Server 2016 new Active Directory capabilities: time-limited group memberships and foreign principal groups.”
