In a few weeks (see the trust site) your Force.com platform will have a nice set of shiny new features. In the mean time, you can start planning for these features, and experimenting with them. Our release page points to the release preview notes, the release schedule, a bunch of the great new features, and to the preview release signup – where you can get a new org ready with all the new features, today.
I’ve been playing, and there’s a bunch of interesting things in there. Here are some of my favourites:
- Bulk API – a new bulk API for inserting/upserting large numbers of records
- Batch Apex – for asynchronous execution
- Code Scheduler – think cron for Apex
- Remote Access Applications with OAuth – yep, OAuth!
Have fun figuring our your favourites, and enjoy experimenting with them until Winter ’10 goes GA!
