The much awaited SharePoint 2016 Release to Manufacturing (RTM) has been released Yesterday (14 March 2016). With that, let us start exploring SharePoint 2016. But, I feel there will be a lot of configurations/prerequisites might be required to install SharePoint 2016 on our Developer Boxes. But, watch out in this space for more information, as let me try to install, explore and share the experience with the readers here as a series of articles.

For the time being, let me share some of the information which I got regarding the SharePoint 2016 from the technet, Microsoft Blogs etc., here, as a detailed all in one place kind of stuff. I have not tried, experienced the new features of SP2016 at this point. Treat this post as a consolidation of various technet articles, blogs etc., and as a beginning to SP2016.

Before digging into the new features, capabilities of SP2016, let us start with how to install on our Developer Boxes.

First of all, the link to download the SP2016 Trial Version is SP2016 Trial Download
