Release Notes Enhancements
My favorite Salesforce Summer ‘15 feature is an improvement to the release notes themselves! The release notes now have a search feature that allows you to quickly find feature updates that relate to you. The release notes are always intimidating, and a good chunk of the features don’t apply to my everyday work. With the new search feature, I can quickly get to the information that’s most important to me. You can search by Salesforce edition, feature impact, or product area.
Receive Debug Logs Predictably
System.debug is inarguably one of the most powerful weapons in a Salesforce developer’s arsenal. It’s one of the only ways we have to answer the question, “WTF is going on with this method?” And, frustratingly, in the past we’ve had to struggle with the question, “WTF is going on with my debug logs?” It looks like Salesforce might have given their developers a little relief this summer. With the release of Summer ’15, Salesforce is introducing a clear order of precedence used when processing debug levels. Many times I’ve lost time fighting with log levels trying to filter out the noise. Having a reliable method of filtering logs will be a huge help and time saver. Check out the Salesforce Summer ‘15 Release Notes here for details on the new debug precedence.
