Microsoft have not yet released the release date for final product

However I think the RTM(release-to-manufacturing) release date was on March 14 for Sharepoint 2016 link1

For SharePoint 2016 RC(Release Candidate)/SharePoint 2016 Preview I think the date is around August 2016



  • I was gone through the above link i am not getting RTM of SharePoint Server 2016 and SharePoint Server 2016 this both same or different.Please someone know tell me.

  • No they are not both. RTM versions are typically released to manufacturers so that the manufacturers can work out any bugs the software may encounter.blogs.office.com/2016/03/14/… 2016 RC is is a beta version with potential to be a final product, which is ready to release unless significant bugs emerge..blogs.office.com/2016/01/20/…
