Difference betwen CR2013 and CR2016

0 Kudos

Kindly could anyone tell me what is the difference between CR2013 and CR2016. Why we need to upgrade to CR2016?

As far up gradation ,only answer I know is CR2013 support ends by 2020. But I would like to know other reasons as well why we should upgrade to CR2016.

Probably a comparison matrix would be fine between CR2013 and CR2016

There's not much difference other than the addition of a couple of newer database connections. Also, 2016 SP4 and newer have updated security libraries.
