With the new Lightroom Classic V11 we have all sorts of new tools but a lot of other enhancements and improvements were included that might be missed.
View metadata for target photo
When multiple images are selected, you can now choose to view metadata for the active image or across all selected images. To view the metadata for the active image, select Target Photo or select Selected Photos to view metadata of all the selected images. By default, Target Photo is selected as the option to view metadata.
You now have control over how you update and display metadata. You can customize and arrange metadata according to your preference in the Metadata panel.
Click ARRANGE in the customize panel and ou can also change the order and rearrange them
EDIT ONLY MODE
Click on the eyeball next to Default and it will take you to Edit Only mode this speeds up batch editing of metadata for multiple images.
CHANGES TO SAVING TO XMP
In the past every edit you did and every slider you moved was being saved in real time to xmp files. This greatly slowed down the performance of lightroom and therefore I didnt recommend automatically citing changes to xmp.
However, with the new Lightroom Classic those edits will be saved into XMP only AFTER active image selection changes.
As I have multiple backups of my catalog I still dont select this preference but for those who do you should see a significant improvement in speed.
