Heads up, Salesforce Developers – we’ll be performing maintenance on our Developer Edition sign-up infrastructure this weekend. During this maintenance window you will not be able to create a brand-new Developer Edition. You will still be able to access any existing Developer Edition. This maintenance is needed in order to bring you the Winter ’16 update to new Developer Editions. To get ready, review the Winter ’16 release notes and catch the recording from this week’s Winter ’16 release highlights webinar.
Here’s the timeline for this upcoming maintenance:
Friday, October 16, 2015 2PM PDT: New Developer Edition sign-ups pause and maintenance window begins.
Saturday, October 17, 2015 9PM PDT: Sign-ups resume for users in the AMER (North, Central, & South America) & EMEA (Europe, Middle East, &Africa) regions. Users outside these regions will see an error message when trying to create a new Developer Edition.
Sunday, October 18, 2015 1PM PDT: Maintenance window ends. Sign-ups resume for all users.
Note: These times are approximate. Make sure you’re following @SalesforceDevs on Twitter, as updates will be posted there.
If you think you will need a new Developer Edition during the maintenance window, we encourage you to sign up for a new Developer Edition right away. Again, access to existing Developer Editions will not be affected.
