The first thing we generally do whenever a new Dynamics CRM version is released, is to check its features, trial and training materials available. Similarly for us a Business Consultant (Developer by heart!) we start with upgrading our Dynamics CRM Solutions but our first focus always remains to get our clients on this new release, how can they be benefited by the new version and be migrated with customizations rolling over to the new version without any much hassle.
Found some links which have been quite helpful during this transition phase for our development team. This is just the start and there surely gonna be many more on this.
