Announcing SDK Update V5.0.13 for Polaris and UR12

Microsoft Dynamics CRM SDK Version 5.0.13 is now live on MSDN downloads and in the MSDN library.  Here’s some of the many additions and updates you’ll find in this release from the Dynamics CRM SDK Team:

  • First of all you’ll notice a new organization to the table of contents. The information should be easier to find, with more information at the higher level nodes. No more searching for reporting, client programming and so on. Many of the reference topics from underneath “Programming Reference” are now located with the topic itself. For example, you’ll see the Client-Side Programming Reference within the section Write Client Application Extensions for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online.
  • The Release History is now divided into one per release.  Here is the current page: SDK Release History for V5.0.13
  • The assemblies have been updated for the Microsoft Dynamics CRM December 2012 Service Update and Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Update Rollup 12.
  • Start with this topic to see the new features the CRM SDK team has documented for the new release: What’s New for Developers for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online. These include some new activity feeds functionality, custom workflows for CRM Online, extended browser support and an explanation of the new attributes and entities you’ll see with the updated user experience in CRM Online.
  • The Plug-in Registration tool executable file can now be found in the Bin folder of the SDK download.  You don’t have to build the tool yourself! The source code for the tool has been removed from the SDK download, but it may be published with code as a separate download later by the Team if there is sufficient demand.
  • Guidance on making the best choice for a solution development environment: Choose Your Solution Development Environment
  • An update of the Developer Toolkit to support Visual Studio 2012.
  • An update to the Metadata Browser tool with many improvements. (See the release history.)
  • Documentation and sample code for the new metadata query capabilities: Retrieve and Detect Changes to Metadata
  • Documentation and sample code for the new data load feature where multiple message requests can be executed in one request: Use ExecuteMultiple to Improve Performance for Bulk Data Load
  • There are 17 new or updated samples. For the complete list, see SDK Release History for V5.0.13
