“PageReference getContent() and getContentAsPDF() Methods Behave as Callouts” Critical Update Postponed

In Summer ’15, we changed the behavior of the getContent() and getContentAsPDF() methods of the PageReference object. This change was released as a critical update named “PageReference getContent() and getContentAsPDF() Methods Behave as Callouts” and was scheduled for auto-activation in Spring ’16. The auto-activation date has been postponed until Summer ’16.

We’ve also further increased the flexibility of calling getContent(). See the details in the Apex section of the release notes.
