There are a number of enhancements/hotfixes related to DIXF.
A new feature enables an alternate way to report a carry-forward budget. The feature maintains the carry-forward status on relieving documents that were based on an originating document carried
(If you change functionality mid-year, and not after year-end, then retroactively update the budget for any transactions for the current year.
This feature cannot be disabled after it’s enabled, because transactions which )would not be considered carry-forward might have occurred using the alternate configuration

Reprocessing of documents against Budget control. When issues are found, the budget manager can inquire into the documents that were found and reprocess these. After reprocessing, the data maintenance process
becomes a read-only record of the documents that were found, as well as showing the results of the reprocessing.
To update the Ledger takes a long time to run Advanced ledger allocation basis rules, as the TempDB fills up -this addresses that issue.

Many retail enhancements – here are a few:

In Retail the maximum number of fields you can add to a receipt footer is increased from 50 to 100.

Customer data privacy – extra fields in the Customer table indicate privacy choices, such as do not call,
email, text, and so on, for all interfaces in all channels

A Post-sync channel DB clean up will reduce data volume.

The X Report and Z Report (in POS and HQ)will no longer include the amounts from the sales quotations.

A feature is added to display/check loyalty card point balance on the Customer detail, Store operation and Loyalty payment page.

A performance issue arises on the Retail Sales form when there are a large number of SQL records in the AX database. KB 4024615 hotfix adds a Search button, and changes the process so that the query is run only when the button is clicked.

A new control allows users to sell (and return) items outside the store assortment.
A credit memo is created without reference at AX HQ if the credit memo is created during a time when the network at the store is down. KB 4021760 hotfix clears the credit memo that was created previously before creating a replacement.

These are some SCM enhancements that also impact performance:
‘Select packing slip’ takes a long time to process for an intercompany Sales Order when the sales policy is set to Unit price equal to cost price – whichis common practice.
KB 3212427 hotfix resolves the performance issue by optimizing data access and improving the performance of the business logic.

When you have a large number of bills of materials (BOMs), bill of materials lines, or BOM versions, you may experience that the performance of the BOM circularity check, that is optimized for high complexity, is not
acceptable. The hotfix he hotfix improve performance of the BOM circularity check, that is optimized for high complexity, in scenarios where you have a large number of bills of materials (BOMs), bill of materials lines, or BOM versions.
