Release Notes - March 2018
This post was written by Dan Fernandez, Principal Group Program Manager in the Cloud + Enterprise Division.
Check out the latest docs.microsoft.com release notes from March. We published some new documentation, as well as migrated more of the MSDN content over in an effort to make sure you can find all the right documentation in one place.
New Documentation Releases
The following documentation sets are new and now available on docs.microsoft.com:
- Xamarin documentation is now live with 13 languages.
- Azure IoT Device Provisioning REST
- Azure Resource Manager 5.5.0
- Bing Ads conceptual versioning rollout
- Welcome to Dynamics 365 Business Central
Every month, we get hundreds of contributions to our documentation from our community. We want to recognize them and make sure that the world knows who helps make Microsoft documentation awesome, so we start by highlighting some of the contributors - every month!
Luke has been contributing to our documentation for a while, so it's no surprise he made it into the list of top contributors this month. His focus is ASP.NET. In addition to GitHub, Luke can also be found on Twitter.
Content Migrated from MSDN
Need content for older products or services, such as release notes, deployment guides, or how-to articles? Then bookmark this page for a quick list of all the latest content migrated from MSDN and TechNet to docs.microsoft.com. The following article sets were moved over this month:
- All Office documentation, available in all 13 versions.

And this is just the beginning! Not only will we ensure that the content is properly relocated, but also that links point to the new content on docs.microsoft.com automatically - if you catch any broken links, report them and we will try to resolve them as soon as possible.
New Features & Tools
English Overlay Switcher
When reading localized content, it's now easier than ever to make sure that you can get the original version of the content by hovering over the translated text - or you can disable that altogether with the help of the new overlay switcher:
Wondering what is the best way to view that high-resolution image that is embedded in an article you are reading? You can now just click on it, and we will display the full resolution image, with a convenient way to zoom in to any part of it with the help of the new lightbox feature:
A table doesn't fit the screen? No problem! You can now scroll through it horizontally!
