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

*Belize theme only 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

Browser Support

  • MS WebBrowser control (“IE control”) running out-of-process to optimize memory allocation and tab handling
  • Browser Developer Tool for MS WebBrowser control, allowing better analysis of HTML5 / JavaScript based applications

    Thanks for the update, Sandra!


    Looking forward to trying it out, once it’s available!




    PS: For me as an RSS User it’s very good that you created a new blog rather than updating an old one;

    So I would suggest, that once it’s finally available, you could create ýet another new blog, that would give me the best visibility of the announcement.

    I do know, though, that RSS only plays a side roles, and there are surely other things to consider as well.
