Latest CRM 2015 Update 1 not coming to CRM on-premise just now

Some of my clients are a little disappointed with the slow rendering time of the more complex forms in CRM 2013 and 2015. Especially when there is a lot of custom JavaScript it takes rather long until the user is able to edit the data. Many times we compared the results of an empty installation with their customized installation and proved that the customizations weren't slowing things down that much.


Session variables are lost when using eBay SDK

I was working with the eBay SDK for a client of mine and every time I posted a new product to eBay via their SDK the session was lost and I was redirected to the login page of the CMS.

When I was looking around the code and the folder structure of the application, I noticed that the SVN icon of the file "listing_log.txt" in the "bin" folder turned red so something change it. Since I was reusing some of the eBay example code I noticed this part where the log file is written. Every time some file in the "bin" folder is changed .NET rebuilds the application so this is why the session variables where lost.
