MS CRM 5.0 is currently on schedule to ship as part of the Office14 Wave (most likely sometime in 2010), and the team is only part way through the development cycle, having just completed Milestone 1 (M1). Even so, there is already much to get excited about. Here is a list of "features" that were discussed:

New Features For End Users
1. Enhanced Navigation
2. Single Page Forms
3. Data Filtering
4. In-line Visualizations
5. Team Ownership
6. Native SharePoint Integration
7. Unstructured Relationships

New Features For Administrators
1. Flexible Form Layout
2. Filtered Lookups
3. Form Headers & Footers
4. Solution Management
5. Multiple Option Sets
6. Drag & Drop Form Editor
7. Audit

New Features For Developers
1. Custom Code Sandbox
2. Plug-In Transaction Support
3. Automatic Plug-In Profiling

As you can see there is a lot to look forward to in CRM5, and I hope you are as excited as I am that the team has chosen to share this information early on.
