Phew... Finally the Bloom R17 version of The Welkin Suite is ready to roll-out to you, so you'll enjoy then new great features we were working so hard last month! First of all it is the easiest way to analyze your Apex code against 180+ rules using the CodeScan tool - couple clicks and here's your comprehensive report on code quality! Won't say 'second', so next to CodeScan we are introducing you a great Field Usage Report that will help you finding out where and how your field is used and what might be the impact of any changes in it - without digging into XML files!
The built-in Task List panel will help you organizing your tasks, improved fields editor in sObjects Inspector will save your time when working with your sObjects and a bunch of other handy changes. Read more on what you'll find in the Bloom R17.
You might think that The Welkin Suite Blaze is again a couple weeks behind the Bloom version for Windows? Kinda, but today we're releasing 2 versions in 1, so some of the newest, coolest things will be available even before the Windows version - like built-in support for the great CodeScan tool, significant performance and UI updates for the Field-Level Security and Local History Details. And at the same time, a lot of improvements for release management and deployment functionality are also available for you now - Copado integration, and enhanced tracking of changes. Are you still thinking that this is not worth a month of waiting? Well, you also have now a new Cloning Fields options, built-in formulas editor with code completion, and a couple more changes.
It seems like this would be the best moment to update our release names from Bloom and Blaze to something new, as we're starting a new iteration of significant updates to The Welkin Suite IDE. It would be even somehow nicer to release something like that on the 1st of March as a sign of a spring and something new and warm...
Well, we haven't done either of this But what we've brought to you is a couple great updates for release management (including integration with a great service from Copado), declarative development and other changes across the IDE. Just take a look.
It's time for a 'tock' release, if we'd borrow a 'tick-tock' release model from one well-know chip manufacturer. The Welkin Suite Blaze R10 brings a lot of 'here-and-there' improvements in different areas of Salesforce development, and we couldn't hesitate to add support for the new PMD 6.0 with a freedom of custom XPath rules! And the best thing here as all these changes are suggested or inspired by our community, so this is exactly what Salesforce devs are looking for. Have doubts? Check yourself ;)
In the first release of The Welkin Suite Bloom in 2018 we hope that we can both surprise you with something unexpected (and, of course, handy) as well as to prove that your feedback, suggestions, and critics had found grateful listeners! Today we're happy to share with you a lot of updates in various areas: data editor in the SOQL Builder, PMD 6.0 with new rules and custom XPath rules support, Lightning and Visualforce previewers, Apex Code Completion, and for sure important bugfixes.
We just ended the 2017 year with the release of The Welkin Suite Bloom for Windows, and now we're welcoming 2018 with the release of The Welkin Suite Blaze R9 with some cool features that you will like for sure! We seem to have a bit for everyone in this, Admin Panel improvements for admins, Apex Class Outline for those who develop backend logic, and a Visualforce previewer for the old-school frontend guys - how does this sound so far? Not enough? Okay, what about a built-in data editor in the SOQL query builder, and enhanced deployments with files comparison right in the IDE? Read below about all these great features!
This 2017 year was quite intensive with all of its challenges and achievements, and, as usual, it was full of great Salesforce events such as TrailheaDX, London’s Calling, India Dreamin, etc., and, of course, the biggest of them - Dreamforce! All these events themselves and the participants have brought a lot of joyful moments, inspiration, insights and new precious connections all over the world!
Christmas is in the air and it is less than 10 days before New Year, and believe you or not, but our team is not only decorating the Christmas tree - we've also prepared some special gifts for you! First of all, is our Christmas discount! And, in addition to that, today we are releasing The Welkin Suite Bloom R14 with some highly-requested features from our great users.
Better Visualforce editing, more powerful deployments, and some tweaks for Admins - we hope this will be a nice gift from us
We are still very busy with the many awesome suggestions for new and improved features for Salesforce admins and developers, and we are still hard at work analyzing them and thinking about a roadmap for the next months At the same time we are doing that, our development team is building a foundation for this new functionality, as well as filling in some gaps in the functionality that was requested a while ago, and improving the stability of the IDE.
So now, it is time to meet the Managed Packages support in The Welkin Suite Bloom R12!
Hope you've had a great rest after Dreamforce this year — no matter if you were there or if you just watched it in social media it was great and enjoyable, however, a rest is surely needed after such a cool event! Even with that said, at the same time our team was working on a new version of The Welkin Suite for Mac — this time it's not packed with awesome new features, but instead it's full of new improvements and fixes all throughout the application!
It'll be a challenge to describe all of them, so we won't go so deep, but we'll highlight the most significant changes — take a look on what waits for you in the Blaze R7!
