The rollout of patches to the Spring ‘18 release continue, and throughout the rollout we have been continuing our daily check on the patch updates, and at the time of writing we’re up to Spring ’18 Patch 14.1.
Of course Summer ‘18 is now right round the corner, with sandbox previews expected to land about 5th May. With this in mind we hope to see our pre-release orgs being updated in the first week April. As soon as the release is available in our pre-release orgs this will enter our daily test cycle programme.
From time to time there are critical updates (CRUCs) released by Salesforce that may impact the running of MobileCaddy applications. When this are seen we request that partners do not activate them prior to them being “green lighted” by us.
There are currently 2 critical updates of note, that we reuqest are not activated until they’ve been through our QA processes.
- Remove Instance Names from URLs for Visualforce, Community Builder, Site.com Studio, and Content Files
More information can be found in the Spring ‘18 release notes.
- New URL Format for Lightning Experience and the Salesforce Mobile App
More information can be found in this blog post and this knowledge article.
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. More information on this, and steps that might be needed, can be found in this Salesforce Help Document.
