How to Use the Release Notes

The release notes give you brief, high-level descriptions of new Salesforce features and enhancements to existing features. You also get setup information, implementation tips to help you get started, and best practices to ensure your continued success.

You can choose from PDF and HTML versions.



Until the new Salesforce release is available in your production organization, links from release notes to the Salesforce Help, implementation guides, developer guides, and other documentation won't work or will point to materials for the previous Salesforce release. Some developer guides have preview versions available several weeks before the Salesforce release. To access the preview versions of developer guides on Salesforce Developers, select Preview from the Documentation Version drop-down list.

These release notes are about new and modified features, not known issues. For information about known issues, check out the Salesforce Known Issues Site.

Easily Understand What’s in Salesforce Lightning Experience and What’s in Salesforce Classic

Everybody’s excited about Salesforce Lightning Experience and everything it offers. But we also understand that lots of organizations will continue to use Salesforce Classic—either exclusively for a few releases or in tandem with Lightning as that experience evolves.

One key to success during this time of transition is understanding what’s available in one, both, or all of the Salesforce experiences. To guide you, we’ve added experience information to these release notes at the highest level where that information applies: for entire clouds or for individual features within clouds. Let’s look at three examples.
  • Communities and all its features are currently available in Salesforce Classic only, so we tell you that in the Communities “Editions” table. It says “Available in: Salesforce Classic.”
  • Case Feed, a Service Cloud feature, is available in both desktop experiences—Lightning and Classic—so its description says “This feature is available in both Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic.
  • Opportunity Workspace, a new Sales Cloud feature, is available in Lightning Experience only, so its description says “This feature is available in Lightning Experience only.
If a key feature is also available in Salesforce1, our mobile app, we mention that in the feature description. But you can also check the Mobile section for a complete list of what's new in Salesforce1.
