Today is the big day for The Welkin Suite team - we have finally published our first component on the AppExchange - the free and highly customizable Tooltip component for lightning. Read more to get to know about this component, how it can save you time, help your users, and what next to expect from us!
It is excellent to work with people from all around the world - there are always some countries where it is a "common holiday time" at any given day. So we can still think about someone who enjoys their well-deserved vacation while working on a new release of the IDE
But, enough lyrics - today we are releasing both Windows and Mac versions of The Welkin Suite, and we're finally bringing multi-project support for Mac! Other than that we've included a bunch of other updates and fixes that you've requested.
Our team frequently gets "homework assignments" from the community - either by suggesting features and improvements or by lettings us know about bugs or "strange behavior" in certain cases. Today we'd like to provide you with our latest homework - The Welkin Suite Bloom R31 and Blaze R24 with a bunch of fixes and improvements that you've recently reported to us. Read more and assess our homework
Today we move forward with The Welkin Suite's functionality for Adminevelopers by adding the new Validation Rules editor to the sObjects Inspector to both Windows and Mac versions of the IDE. Additionally, you will have an ability to delete all debug logs from your organization, if you've encountered a strange Salesforce behavior and got stuck with gigabytes of logs in the org.

Do you already use Lightning Web Components? Or, maybe, you've only heard about them, but haven't yet tried yourself? Or do you already have a timeline for your project to start utilizing LWC instead of Lightning (oops, Aura) Components? In any case - Lightning Web Components are going to become Salesforce's new de-facto standard for UI elements, at least in a couple of years. This, of course, means that LWS should be supported in The Welkin Suite - in the same way as Apex, Aura, and Visualforce. Today, in the Bloom R29 and Blaze R22, we are releasing support for LWS in The Welkin Suite for both Windows and Mac, so you can both learn and work with this new framework, as well as with all other supported metadata types.
Spend just 10 minutes of your time to go through new capabilities of the IDE.
"Release with fixes" might sound not as cool as a "release with a whole lot of new features", but we are absolutely sure that both types of releases are equally important, so check out the Bloom R27 release with fixes and improvements for some of the important areas of The Welkin Suite IDE. If you're using Salesforce DX, work with Copado directly in the IDE, or work with permission sets and value sets often - this release is for you.
Today we are releasing the first update to The Welkin Suite for Mac in 2019 with a great new feature for those, who work with sObjects and their permissions in Salesforce - Objects Permissions Editor. From now it is one reason less to switch to the Salesforce Setup menu, and one more time-saving scenario in the IDE for both developers and administrators. You will also find some other fixes and improvements in the IDE, so check out this short release notes to find out what's new!
After the winter holidays season and a short break, we're finally here with the new release of The Welkin Suite. This time we have focused on the Objects Permissions Editor functionality and some bugfixes. Take a look at what's new in the Bloom R25 and what to expect from us in the next couple months!
We believe you liked our Bloom R19 version of The Welkin Suite IDE and you already have had an opportunity to try those incredible features which were needed So we are ready to continue to implement more of your requests and, of course, to fix some issues that you have reported to us. This time we paid our attention mostly to Anonymous Apex and SOQL, but not only to this! So in this release for the Windows TWS version, you will find more than 20 different improvements and fixes all over the application.
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):
- More than 100 metadata types are added to the list of supported metadata types
- Added a new cool approach to work with such a large amount of metadata types - metadata working set

- Added an option to create (and maintain) TWS projects directly from sources (e.g. from your Git repository)
