Microsoft has released a new whitepaper about Deploying Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 and CRM Online Solutions from Development through Test and Production Environments, you can download it from here.
Actually I am a bit dubious about the section related to workflows references between environments, as there's ways to fully automate this as well but I couldn't find it in the document.

In relation to the availability of the Update Rollup 5 earlier this week, an update to the CRM 2011 SDK has been released, you can download it from here.
This update adds a lot (more than 15) sampe codes like Activity Feeds, Office 365 connectivity, Audit User Access,... so it's really a must have.
Note that the Hands-on labs have been removed from the sdk, but are still accessible from the Developer Training Kit.

As it's a cumulative update, it contains all fixes from RU1 to RU18, but here's the list of the specific fixes included When you use Internet Explorer 9, a blank box is displayed instead of a date control field in a custom CRM form in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0. Compression functionality is not always enabled for calls between Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 client for Outlook and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Web Services.
