Updates for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011

The following table details Update Rollups released for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011. Note that some Update Rollups cannot be installed, so a backup before installation is advised.

Update Rollups includes fixes and sometimes new features. You may also see reference to new features as a release number, for example, R7. The release number is internally by Microsoft to group a set of new features. The grouping is also referred to using a calendar reference such as Q4 2011. Regardless of the naming scheme, new features are only delivered by update rollups.
