The new set of NCM features, described What we are working on now: NCM a while back, will soon be available for beta.

If you are an NCM customer with active maintenance, I encourage you to sign-up here for the upcoming Release Candidate.

Signing-up is a short and easy process that will take you through a few questions about your environment.

As illustrated by the screenshots below, NCM 7.0 has exciting new capabilities such as the Change Request Approval feature but also new web-based node and account management screens and a tighter integration with Orion Core.

We hope to see many of you sign-up for this beta and are looking forward to reading your feedback, which is essential to preserve and improve NCM’s quality and usability.
