close on the heels of Microsoft
Dynamics CRM 2011 Update Rollup 10, Microsoft is set to release Update
Rollup 11 on Thursday, October 11.
Rollup 11 features include:
Microsoft Dynamics CRM business solutions that include an entity with a large
dataset, record retrieval and grid rendering performance can be negatively
impacted for users that do not have global access to all records associated
with that entity. Microsoft has fined tuned the code changes to mitigate this
behavior that it first instituted in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0.
beginning with Dynamics CRM 2011 Update Rollup 10, Microsoft has optimized the
performance of queries against large datasets by adjusting specific
"statistical" settings to address the issue.
Update Rollups 4-6 could not be uninstalled, you will be able to uninstall
Update Rollup 11. But remember to always back up your databases and application
servers before you install an Update Rollup.
Rollup 6 established a new servicing baseline. This will enable uninstalls of
some future CRM 2011 Update Rollups, but this also means that Update Rollup 6
is prerequisite for installation of all future Microsoft CRM 2011 Update Rollups
starting with Update Rollup 7," according to Microsoft's Knowledge Base article.
a database created with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Update Rollup 6 or a higher
version can't be imported to a deployment of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Update
Rollup 5 or an earlier version, the best thing to do is to import databases or
customizations between environments that are at the same Update Rollup level.
addition, because Update Rollup 11 is cumulative it contains all changes
released in earlier Update Rollup releases. It also contains the Dynamics CRM
Q4 Service Update features released via Update Rollup 5. All the information is
contained in the KB article.

said Greg Nichols, Premier Field Engineering, Microsoft, in a
blog post about Update Rollup 11. When necessary, Microsoft plans to
release enhancements via future Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Update Rollups to
assure compatibility with future releases of these products."
