Microsoft announced the Release to Manufacturing (RTM) of SharePoint Server 2016, which features new capabilities for end-users as well as IT. It also includes what the company refers to as "the next generation of hybrid capabilities".

A spokesperson for the company tells us, "SharePoint is continuing and growing its role in enabling content collaboration for organizations and today’s RTM is just one more step towards making SharePoint more simple, mobile, intelligent and secure."

"As work teams become more dynamic and digital content growth continues to skyrocket, SharePoint will play an ever increasing role in enabling content collaboration for the new way of working," says Seth Patton, general manager for the SharePoint and OneDrive Product Management team. "As a part of Microsoft’s broader ambition to reinvent productivity, we are on a mission to make SharePoint more simple, mobile, intelligent and secure to help customers unlock the value of having it as an integrated part of Office 365. This year, we will release significant new innovations spanning user experiences, document collaboration, mobile enhancements and platform improvements that will redefine modern content collaboration."

The company also announced the RTM of Project Server 2016, which is distributed as part of SharePoint Server 2016. You can look at release notes for that here.

On May 4, Microsoft will hold a virtual launch event for SharePoint Server 2016, where it will roll out the new SharePoint and OneDrive for Business roadmap.
