The latest version of SAP Business Client will be released soon together with SAP GUI for Windows 7.50*.

*Belize theme only fully supported when connected to S/4HANA on-premise 1610 >

What’s coming?

SAP Business Client supports SAP Belize theme!

Visual integration with the next generation of SAP Fiori launchpad** and SAP Fiori visual theme for classic applications (SAP Belize) for SAP S/4HANA on-premise 1610.
That is: A homogenous UI – Almost no visible difference no matter what type of application you open – SAP Fiori App, FPM / WDA, and SAP GUI for Windows transaction (see screenshots below). Including Fiori 2.0 features as notifications and enhanced support for SAP GUI transactions (system info, search, side panels).
**End users need SAP Business Client 6.5 to run SAP GUI for Windows from SAP Fiori launchpad

Enhanced browser integration

The MS WebBrowser control (“IE control”) is now running “out-of-process”, providing a faster and more stable browsing experience. Additionally, there is a new browser developer tool for the MS WebBrowser control, allowing a better analysis of HTML5 and JavaScript-based applications.
