ConfigMgr 2010 is Generally Available now. You don’t have to run the opt-in version script to make the 2010 version available in the console. Microsoft released the SCCM opt-in version of 2010 on Nov 30th, 2020. This was announced by David James Director of Engineering, ConfigMgr & Desktop Analytics, Microsoft.
You can learn more about the new features of the ConfigMgr 2010 production version. Let’s get more details from Top 5 New Features of SCCM 2010 | ConfigMgr.
NOTE! – The end of the opt-in phase is not the same as GA. GA was two weeks ago when we released 2010. The fact that customers had to opt-in doesn’t mean it wasn’t GA. GA means the product is ready and supported for general production use by all customers which as noted, was two weeks ago. Thanks to Jason Sandys for correcting me.
SCCM 2010 Update is Generally Available
Microsoft Configuration Manager (ConfigMgr) team released the 2010 version in the SLOW ring (update is available without using an opt-in script). Now you don’t need to run the PowerShell script to get the 2010 updates. This is announced by David James in the below tweet.
Ok it is now available universally to everyone without having to opt in. Everyone on #configmgr 1910 or later should see it in their consoles without taking any other action. #memcm https://t.co/KjZ10jtQgW
