Configuration Manager 2006 Generally Available

As of today September 1st 2020 Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager (MEMCM) 2006 is generally available. Microsoft had released opt-in version of MECM 2006 earlier but you don’t need it now.

Just after few weeks of the release of ConfigMgr 2006, the current branch version 2006 is now generally available. So this means you don’t need enableearlyupdatering2006.ps1 file to download the update 2006.

ConfigMgr 2006 (MECM 2006) brings lot of new features and improvements over the previous release. Apart from the official Microsoft docs, you also get the notifications from David James about such releases.
