Not all folks know that there is a Microsoft Knowledge Base article that lists all available Hotfixes and Updates shipped by the CRM Sustained Engineering Team (aka CRM SE) for Microsoft CRM v3.0. This article is updated as we release new Hotfixes or Updates as responses to customer issues, as well as “internal finds” – issues we find during internal testing we feel you may eventually encounter, which we feel should be fixed proactively.
So, where is this Knowledge Base article?
I thought you might like to know about a couple of things we’re working on!
Microsoft CRM v3.0 Performance Whitepaper: I can’t commit to a hard release date quite yet, but we’re working on a “sequel” to the enormously popular Microsoft CRM v1.2 Performance Whitepaper on the Microsoft Download Center. We’ve learned a lot while working with large customers with large datasets, as well as global deployments. The Whitepaper will summarize our learnings so far, and we plan on updating it quarterly – we learn something every day about SQL tuning (an art in itself!), performance-related hotfixes, load balancing… we hope you enjoy it. You should be seeing the “first edition” in a couple of months… stay tuned.
Update Rollup 1 for Microsoft CRM v3.0: Again, I can’t commit to a release date quite yet, but CRM SE plans on developing, testing, and releasing to the Microsoft Download Center our first Update Rollup for v3.0. We’re shooting for a release around the end of October… again, stay tuned.Greg Nichols
