Dynamics CRM 4.0 Titan - Screencasts

In the past I've worked with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0. Some time ago Microsoft anounced they were going to release version 4.0 Titan of their CRM software. After this I looked around on the internet for information about CRM 4.0.

In the last few weeks I found a lot of screencasts by Philip Richardson on CRM 4.0.

Besides this there's a new blog launched Microsoft CRM 4.0.

After watching the screencasts I have some comments to make.

The import and export for customizations now also supports the import and export of settings.

Mail merge seems to work when using the Outlook client, but does it also work from within the webclient?

Workflow now makes use of Workflow Foundation, very nice.

Still waiting for some more information about CRM 4.0. I'll post more about CRM 4.0 in the future.

Hmm reading this. What about Visual Studio 2005? What's the use of it, development for Dynamics CRM 3.0 needs to be in .NET 1.1. I know it is possible to use Visual Studio 2005 to target to .NET 1.1 but it isn't that easy. I'm going to download the image as soon as possible and maybe add some comments to this post as part of it.
