Microsoft Dynamics® AX 2009 Service Pack 1 (SP1) contains the complete set of updates that Microsoft has issued since the June 2008 RTM release of Microsoft Dynamics® AX 2009, as well as a number of enhancements and new features to improve the product’s functionality and user experience. Key highlights in this service pack release include:

1.     Support for Microsoft SQL Server® 2008.

2.     Supports future GLS releases and targeted releases, such as the Environmental Sustainability module, which will require an SP1 environment for installation.

3.     Updates both the SYS and GLS layers of the product. This means, for example, that if you already have GLS-TR installed on your system, SP1 will update this layer during the installation process.

4.     You can now write XML documentation in X++® source code to document classes, class methods, and table methods. This XML documentation can be extracted from the source code to create an XML documentation file.

Microsoft Dynamics® AX 2009 Service Pack 1 can be downloaded from PartnerSource (need access login).
