Full metadata support, seamless teamwork and other improvements in The Welkin Suite Blaze R13

The Welkin Suite
Release 25 Jul 2018 468

The Welkin Suite Blaze R13 version is dedicated to covering all of the known issues and imperfections in the teamwork organization for non-SalesforceDX projects, and much of this is based on a lot of feedback from our community- thank you to all that sent ideas and pain points!

It is a huge challenge to highlight anything that was introduced in this release as somehow more important than anything else, as all of these changes were requested and are quite honestly required for a comfortable work with Salesforce projects in complex environments. So due to the significant amount of changes that we made, we'll just list them off without any additional description - so you can find what would be the interesting areas to you and then you can read about them in more detail below.

So the main changes in the new version of the IDE are (the links will lead you to the correct section in the article):

Tutorial 18 Jul 2018 364

Ok, we have to admit that at the time of our writing this, we haven't yet released The Welkin Suite Bloom R19, but we'd still like to share with you some of the new great additions that it will introduce so that you will be up to speed by the release. So with that comment out of the way, one of the most very common questions we have had over the past years has been "How to work with my sources that are in Git in The Welkin Suite?" - today we're going to be answering this question.

The Welkin Suite is about to roll out a great release, and I would like to highlight that it’s totally based on your feedback and requests! Some of you may have already seen our announcement on this release of The Welkin Suite but if you missed it - you can check it out here.

This version of the IDE is really full of significant changes for different parts of the IDE's functionality. And now, I would like to clarify some more details to warm up your interest! :) So what makes this version so important?

A promising title, isn't it? Believe me or not, but the upcoming release itself is even more promising! So let me tell you what's going on, we've heard a lot of feedback from different sources related to the way of how The Welkin Suite works with Salesforce organizations, and thank you for that. And in those feedbacks, we have heard some very helpful critics that were mostly related to the following aspects:

  • A lack of support for the %Put_Your_Metadata_Name_Here% metadata type
  • A rock-solid connection of a project tothe organization, without any option to easily switch between orgs with the same sources
  • Unbeatable safeguards that prevent you from overwriting something in Salesforce
  • A lack of a way to work with plain "src" folder in the IDE

You know what? All of this (and even more) will be resolved in the next 2 weeks, and in this post, we will highlight to you some of the details with very early screenshots.

Blaze R12 with Field Usage Report, Custom Metadata Types, OAuth and other improvements

The Welkin Suite
Release 11 May 2018 1009

It is time to welcome one more big "cumulative" update of The Welkin Suite for Mac - yes, today we are rolling out great new version of the IDE with some really important and helpful changes. It is even hard to say if the focus is on point-n-click Salesforce development, taking into account a set of new features for sObjects Inspector and absolutely awesome Field Usage Report, or if it is geared towards those who write code with Custom Metadata support and Find Usages for Apex.

But who really cares about defining a "theme" for the new version of the IDE if there are so many great features? Btw, 5 minutes of your time spent on reading release these notes will make your life much easier right from the first launch of the Blaze R12 as you'll know where to look for all the new features (and you are going to want to look for them wink)!
