Update Rollup 7 is now available for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011. It brings some nice fixes to the table, but also brings with it a new feature, read-optimized forms. Read-optimized forms are read-only and load very fast because they send only the very minimum amount of information across the wire. This is very good for people who don't need edit access or often times need to be able to pull up information very quickly. The edit-button will also still be in the ribbon so you can quickly switch to your edit form. Lastly, you don't have to use them if you don't want to. and you can even allow your users to turn them on or off for themselves.
