Updated and new content for Microsoft Dynamics AX was posted to TechNet and MSDN on September 21st.
Because we are still working on filling out the documentation set we are publishing large numbers of topics. Therefore, this is the longest blog post I've ever written (or tried to encourage others to read).
The following table should give you an idea of the scope of the post. Because of the length of the post, the table also contains internal hyperlinks to take you to groups of topics.
Approximate number of topics published
System Administrator Topics
Application User Topics
Topics Published on both MSDN and TechNet (Models, Reporting, and Services)

Note that for brand new sections like the License and Configuration Keys Reference, we provide a link to the top-level topic. For existing sections that contain new or updated topics, we link you to specific topics.
Also, topics are listed either in the order that they appear in the Table of Contents, or in alphabetical order.
As always, if you are curious about our general content strategy, where you can find our content, and how to give us feedback, see the post on Inside Dynamics AX: Official Dynamics AX 2012 Content.
