favorite programming language, these enhancements to Force.com help you develop amazing
applications and integrations.
Use new debugging features to root out problems in your Salesforce org.

Develop apps to customize your organization using Visualforce, including Salesforce1 and other mobile apps. This feature is available in Lightning Experience, Salesforce Classic, and all versions of the Salesforce1 mobile app. Enhancements in this release are focused on improving Visualforce for Lightning Experience.
We’ve simplified cross-namespace limits and added a Lightning page to view Apex test results more easily. We’ve also upgraded functionality related to Connected apps, CORS access, asynchronous callouts, and serialization.
The Lightning Component framework powers Lightning Experience and Salesforce1. Use the framework to build mobile apps and pages in Lightning Experience, Salesforce1, Salesforce Classic, and Communities. Enhancements in this release are focused on security and supportability with critical releases for LockerService and access-check error enforcement. This release also includes support for the $Resource global value provider and enhancements to the Developer Console to make it easier to create components and applications for use in different contexts.
We’ve expanded our APIs across the board by adding data and tooling objects, metadata types, REST resources, and SOSL statements in API version 37.0. We’ve also enhanced existing objects, REST resources, SOAP calls, and support for industry standards, such as cross-origin resource sharing (CORS).
ISVforce tools make it easy to build, package, and distribute apps and Lightning components. Now you can visualize AppExchange Checkout data and communicate effortlessly with customers and team members. We also updated branded login pages in Trialforce to give your customers a clean, modern login experience.
Peruse Developer Tool Download Links Without Logging In
We’ve cleaned up the Tools page in Setup and made it easier to access what you need. This page now contains only three links, and groups the tools into categories: a comprehensive list of Force.com tools and toolkits, integration tools on the AppExchange, and admin and developer tools on the AppExchange. The linked pages feature more tools than the Setup page did, and you can access them without logging in to Salesforce. This feature is available in both Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic.
