BizTalk 2013 R2 should be available this month.

Even if this new BizTalk version is not a major one with really new core features, MBV had to be updated to be able to first detect a BizTalk 2013 R2 group, and second to check that the OS and SQL versions of a BizTalk 2013 R2 group are correct and so well supported.

I had also to change some existing queries and rules related to BizTalk Cumulative Updates which assumed a BizTalk 2013 group instead of a 2013 R2 one.

This new version is available for download as usual on my blog at the same location :


I will go more in depth in a next post about the integration of MBV with BizTalk 2013 R2 with some details about the new "BizTalk Health Monitor" MMC snap-in soon available.
so stay tuned…
