In time for Drupalcon Baltimore, Message Agency has cut a release candidate (8.x-3.0-rc1) for the Salesforce Suite. As we've been reporting, there is much to be excited about in this new version:

  • Objectification of Salesforce resources
  • Push queue overhaul based on DatabaseQueue, and cron-based push
  • Real-time push, and entity-based push/pull form
  • Robust unit and functional test coverage
  • Queue on Failure
  • Queue Settings per Mapping

Read more details about the new features and planned improvements in our January blog post.
