Is there any information available about what will be new in the upcoming update of Windows Intune?
I was told that Intune will not manage the 8.1 preview, but my test today shows an 8.1 preview machine as a good Intune 'citizen'.
MarkW - what was the windows intune client build/version number? I wish I could get my preview computers enrolled.
Neil, I see Windows 8.1 Preview OS as well as Windows 8.1 RTM displayed in the Intune Console as "Windows 6.3", which is the kernel version number, build number 9600 for RTM. Intune Software Inventory shows all the detail version numbers correctly.
No problems installing the Intune agents on Preview or RTM Windows 8.1. The OS version and edition names should resolve after the upcoming Service Update.
Neil, you had asked about the Intune Client version, which is 7.9.11540.0 on all clients from XP to Win8.1.
