Two days ago Microsoft released a new update 1610 for Configuration Manager. This update consists of a lot of new features. From my point of view the most important features are:
- Cloud management gateway as an alternative to IBCM;
- new model of boundary groups;
- Peer Cache for clients that can reduce numbers of distribution points.
The full list of new features you can find in official documentation.
