release

The Welkin Suite Bloom R19 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 Introduced the freedom to reconnect your Salesforce project to any organization in seconds Added an option to create (and maintain) TWS projects directly from sources (e.g. from your Git repository) Significantly reworked our deployment functionality Introduced the deploy-on-save option Significantly reworked our pull functionality
