There are two updates for this and the first update is called Support for Company Names with International Characters and it allows you to receive and update data from Business Central companies where the company name includes non-English characters or non-letter symbols. The second update is called Better Handling of Flow Fields and it fixes the issues that happened when you tried to edit multiple rows in a list that included FlowFields in Excel.

Edit active prices in Prices Overview and implement price changes using Price Worksheet
According to Microsoft, when you enable the New Pricing Experience feature update on the Feature Management page, the Feature Data Update guide opens. To specify that you primarily work with sales prices, turn on the Use default prices toggle. If you use sales price lists, turn off the toggle. If Use default price lists is turned on during feature data update, existing prices will be converted to default price lists for each area (sales, purchase, and jobs). This lets you edit prices in the same way as before. The default price lists will be automatically specified on the Sales & Receivables Setup, Purchases & Payables Setup, and Jobs Setup pages.
Send documents as emails with any attached files automatically added as email attachments
