Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 R2 Features List

If you have been keeping tabs on the Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Conference 2011 blog articles coming out of Fargo on both Developing for Dynamics GP (see David's article Day 1 Morning) and this site (see my article Day 1 Opening Session), you may have caught glimpses of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 R2 pillars and features list. I wanted to make sure you had a clear view of these two images and start to cheer for the new features that will be delivered in the next iteration of the product.
