SAP Business Client 7.70
Latest Update January 2022: With the next release of SAP Business Client 8.0 the open source version of Google Chrome (Cef Chromium Embedded Framework) will be replaced by Microsoft Edge. Both controls, Cef and Edge are based on Chromium. Cef will be supported until 2.4. 2024. See also here.
We are happy to announce SAP Business Client 7.70, launched together with SAP GUI for Windows 7.70.
With the SAP Fiori UX Integration, the new Fiori 3 theme Quartz is available with Business Client.
Quartz Light will be the standard theme, but the dark theme – Quartz Dark – has already gained a lot of admirers too.
With the implementation of Microsoft Edge WebView2, Microsoft’s new browser control based on the fast Chromium rendering, we offer a future-proof browser control automatically updated at OS level.
Once again, many of the new features were developed thanks to being requested by customers. These features include:
Fiori 3 Themes:
Quartz Light & Dark, High Contrast Black and High Contrast White.
Microsoft Edge WebView2, Microsoft’s new browser control based on Chromium, was added as new browser control inside SAP Business Client
SAP Business Client provides better support for large and memory-consuming web-based applications now. On a clean installation the installer automatically chooses the version of the operating system.
Dynamic Browser Selection:
Running different browser controls in different tabs at the same time is now possible (IE+Edge). So choose the ideal browser control for each target application (e.g. using ActiveX).
“Cloud Integration” – SAP Launchpad Service Integration (former SAP Cloud Platform Launchpad):
With 7.70 you can connect to your launchpad in the cloud (SAP BTP, Cloud Foundry runtime environment) and whenever there is a navigation to a transaction running in an on-premise system, the transaction will be rendered with SAP GUI for Windows, otherwise SAP GUI for HTML.
New header design, increasing the space for your applications (Menu=>Show tabs in a separate row)
SAP Fiori Launchpad Session Management:
Session timeout handling between SAP Fiori Launchpad and SAP GUI

7.70 is fully downward compatible with its predecessor. To use the new Quartz theme, you need the UI5-Version 1.71 and S/4HANA 1909.
At least 8 Patches are planned for 2021.
