CRM 2011 SDK 5.0.13 - What's New In Brief

  • Extended Browser Support - The thing most everyone has been waiting for. After applying UR12, make sure you double check any JavaScript (especially those "unsupported" items) to make sure they still work. The Custom Code Validation Tool will help validate code ahead of time.
  • Enhancements to Activity Feeds - New Like/Unlike functionality has been added.
  • Updated User Experience for Sales and Customer Service and Product Update Functionality - The new process driven UI enhancements required the addition of a new entity as well as additions/changes to attributes in the Lead, Opportunity, and Incident entities.
  • Custom Workflow Activities for Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online - Another feature I think many people were waiting for.
  • Developer Toolkit Support for Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 - Time to uninstall Visual Studio 2010.
  • Bulk Data Load - The new ExecuteMultipleRequest will batch a collection of messages and send them as a group to reduce the overhead of multiple trips to the server and return a batch of responses.
