Besides my disappointment that this years Dreamforce did not bring any notable improvements for isv and partners that mainly use the platform, I stumbled over this screenshot in this Platform EBook (Slide37).

enter image description here

It looks like a feature-by-feature version control tightly integrated into Salesforce.com. I can't believe that they jus made-up this screen without working on something in the background.

Do you know what we see here?

  • Where in the documentation did you find this? It just looks like a mock page, but is still very exciting. – Thomas Crouse Oct 17 '14 at 13:51

    We did get a demo of interactive debugging at DF14, so i'm pretty pleased with that, but this looks very interesting, thanks for sharing! – Andrew Fawcett Oct 21 '14 at 8:33
  • Another good sign that something with Versioning is "in the making" is the " Version Control Init Org Repo" Background Job Type. Just found it in my org ;-) – Robert Sösemann Nov 6 '14 at 12:07

This feature is going to go into pilot in Winter or Spring '15. Note this idea being "Under Consideration" https://success.salesforce.com/ideaView?id=08730000000BrBKAA0.

    I heard it mentioned as being in development at several sessions this year, but I didn't hear anyone commit to a particular release...but it did sound like we would see something concrete in 2015 – BritishBoyinDC Oct 17 '14 at 15:41

I think this all comes under the Umbrella name Salesforce.com Agile Accelerator which was announced in the Partner keynote on Dreamforce '14. Salesforce.com seems to soon release it's internal development and planning tools GUS (http://youtu.be/GR2RRyqIdvo) as an AppExchange app to its partners.
