On April 12, 2016, Microsoft released a new version of Azure AD Connect, dubbed version 126.96.36.199. This release brings improvements to a lesser-known function of Azure AD Connect, expands on the automatic upgrade scenarios and adds PowerShell Cmdlets to manage the built-in scheduler, that is new in Azure AD Connect version 1.1.x.
Multi-valued Directory Extensions
Version 1.0.8641.0 of Azure AD Connect introduced the Directory Extensions functionality, that allows organizations to sync attributes for objects in the on-premises Active Directory Domain Services environment(s), that they have created themselves using Active Directory schema extensions.
Unfortunately, up until this release, the Directory Extensions were limited to single-valued attributes. This version adds support for multi-valued attributes to Directory Extensions.
More Automatic Upgrade Scenarios
This version of Azure AD Connect adds support for more configuration variations for automatic upgrade to be considered eligible for upgrade.
This means, that even more organizations can benefit from the automatic upgrade functionality, new since version 1.1x of Azure AD Connect, than before.
PowerShell Cmdlets for Scheduler
The team added the following PowerShell Cmdlets for the custom scheduler:
Using these PowerShell Cmdlets you can schedule the Connectors, if the built-in scheduler does not satisfy your requirements.
This is version 188.8.131.52 of Azure AD Connect.

If the Automatic Updating functionality hasn’t already upgraded your Azure AD Connect installation to version 184.108.40.206, you can download this version of Azure AD Connect above.
With the automatic upgrade feature functionality expanded to even more scenarios in this version, it might just be the last time you had to upgrade Azure AD Connect, manually.
