Three months after the releasing of Veeam Backup & Replication v9, Veeam is start talking the next release, that seems to be v9.5 (so an intermediate version).

Last week they have announced the first new major feature: a new storage integration with with Nimble Storage! This integration will complete the existing with EMC, HP and NetApp products (for primary storage) and confirm the rumor of a support not for a big name (at least not one of the biggest), but a promising new storage vendor.

To learn more on new features, just subscribe to the official Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 page.

The new version will be general availability in the second half of this year. I guess that the release date will depend mostly on Windows Server 2016 RTM availability (actually there is the  Technical Preview 5) but also the next release of vSphere (6.1 or probably 6.5 to avoid confusion with all the VSAN versions).
