Microsoft announced that SharePoint 2016 will only be release in Spring 2016

Microsoft announced that SharePoint 2016 will only be release in Spring 2016.

In February, Microsoft shared their vision on the evolution of SharePoint, outlining our plans for continued cloud innovation with SharePoint in Office 365, and providing a glimpse of the work underway to deliver our next on-premises server release, SharePoint Server 2016.  With Ignite just a few weeks away, we’re getting ready to share more details on the innovation we’re bringing to SharePoint 2016. In the meantime, Microsoft wanted to provide an update on release timing and share some of the key enhancements and new capabilities we’re focused on.
Microsoft confirmed that SharePoint Server 2016 will become generally available in Q2 2016, with a public beta planned for Q4 2015. They also want to confirm their commitment to delivering on-premises releases of SharePoint for the foreseeable future. Their envision a future where they will continue to have customers who choose a combination of on-premises, cloud and hybrid deployments for many years to come.  Microsoft is excited to start sharing information on their SharePoint investments at Microsoft Ignite, so below there are highlighted some of the most relevant sessions to attend if you’re interested in learning more about the road ahead.
The next version of SharePoint Server, Microsoft is paying close attention to trends in content management, team collaboration, user experiences across devices, and how the cloud can be blended into existing on-premises scenarios in new and compelling ways. In particular Microsoft is focused on delivering value to customers as part of their on-premises deployments, while at the same time making it easier to take advantage of cloud innovation thru hybrid deployments of SharePoint Server with Office 365. With that backdrop, SharePoint Server 2016 will deliver enhancements and new capabilities in three major areas:
  • Improved user experiences
  • Cloud-inspired infrastructure
  • Compliance and reporting
