The LHC has just concluded this year's proton-proton run at 7 TeV CM energy, producing more than 5fb-1of data.
While the full data sample collected by the CMS experiment will be analyzed over the winter, many of the present searches
for new physics have been completed with 1-2 fb-1. In this talk we will present the most recent updates on the search analyses in CMS, including
the Higgs search, searches for supersymmetry, and a plethora of other BSM models, such as extra dimensions, Z's, W_R, leptoquarks, and more.
We'll also show the short-term and longer-term plans of the collider and experiments.
