CRM 2011 – New SDK version 5.0.16 available

I read this news from the excellent blog 

MSCRM Bing’d

I recommend reading the article by clicking the link below

Whilst reading the article I looked at the What’s changing in the next major release and there are some quite fundamental changes, especially if you have used legacy CRM 4 code and haven’t properly updated it yet.

This link from MSDN has the changes in detail

here are the highlights

The following legacy Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 features will be removed or will no longer be supported in the next major product release:

  • ISV folder support for custom web applications
  • Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 plug-ins
  • Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 client-side scripting
  • Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 custom workflow activities


Removal of JavaScript Form Scripting Support for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Objects and Functions

Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 exposed global functions and form objects to form scripting with JavaScript. These scripting objects and functions were deprecated in the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 release and will be removed in the next major release. All form scripts for the next release should use the Xrm.Page and Xrm.Utility object models. For more information see Upgrade Scripts to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 and Use the Xrm.Page Object Model.


There is also the removal of some Ribbon controls.

so there are certainly some things to keep in mind
