Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack Released alongwith Retail Whitepapers

Microsoft has released Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack which can be downloaded by going through this link - Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack Release (You need to Sign in via PartnerSource or CustomerSource)

Below I have extracted From the Overview Page:

Microsoft has released Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack which is Microsoft ERP solution for enterprises that empowers  people to anticipate and embrace change so business can thrive. It constitutes Microsoft's biggest releases that target five key industries: Manufacturing, Distribution, Services Industries, Public Sector, and Retail. This release also incorporates Microsoft Dynamics ERP RapidStart Services.

Microsoft Dynamics AX Feature Pack is generally available on February 1, 2012 

The Microsoft Dynamics AX retail solution has been incorporated into the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. This release includes key feature enhancements in areas such as POS, multi-channel management, store management, merchandising, and more. The supply chain features described in the following section complement retail in addition to other industries. 

Note: All functionality for retail, except for the sample POS plug-ins, are part of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack.

Supply Chain Management 
The moving average inventory valuation method has been added to Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. This method of inventory valuation is often used by retailers and wholesale distributors.
A fourth product/item dimension (style) has been added to better enable Stock Keeping Unit (SKU) support across Microsoft Dynamics AX.
Additionally, support for high volume sales processing has been added by enabling the import of sales invoices without requiring associated sales orders.

Service Industries
Support has been added for inter-company project time entry.

Industry Solutions
All of the industry solutions, Process Industries, Public Sector, Retail, and Service Industries, are now incorporated into the product and are installed the same way as other Microsoft Dynamics AX modules. Customers can enable or disable features by using configuration keys and can use features from multiple industry solutions. For example, a Public Sector organization can use the Retail POS capabilities, a pharmaceutical company involved in drug discovery and trials can use Service Industries and Process Manufacturing capabilities, or a wholesale distributor can use the Retail merchandising features.

Microsoft Dynamics ERP RapidStart Services
The connector required to configure an on-premise instance of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 instance by using RapidStart Services is now included in the installer. You no longer have to download it separately.

Also, you can download Retail Deployment and other whitepapers for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 directly from Microsoft Download Center
