All orgs were updated to Summer ‘18 early June, following our continual testing through from pre-release to sandbox.
Although no changes to MobileCaddy or app containers were required for this release we have picked up on anecdotal performance drops. We are in continued dialogue with Salesforce’s Apex product team to raise this up and provide test results with them.
At the time of writing we are seeing patch level at Summer ‘18 11.1.
Of course we already preparing for the Winter ‘19 release, and expect this to arrive into pre-release orgs at the start of August.
Occasionally there are critical updates (CRUCs) released by Salesforce that may impact the running of MobileCaddy applications. When these are seen we request that partners do not activate them prior to them being “green lighted” by us.
There is currently 1 critical updates of note, that we request are not activated until they’ve been through our QA processes.

Instance Refreshes and Org Migrations
From time-to-time, Salesforce undertakes a maintenance operation called an Instance Refresh. This is performed for various reason, but primarily to maintain good performance. As part of this your org may be moved to a new data center (note this is not an “Org Migration” – yes, silly naming, we know). More information on this, and steps that might be needed, can be found in this Salesforce Help Document.
