  • A scheduled job that misses its scheduled time (by default, within 30 seconds of its scheduled time) is declared a misfire. When a misfire is detected, it will now show in the task history decorated with a new "misfire" icon. This should make it clearer when misfires are detected and what that means for misfire handling.

    • Manage Interpreters also lets you disable Python versions as required.
  • Versioned the following components. Existing jobs using the old version of the component will continue to work as expected. New instances of the components will use the new version.

  • Added CSV and ZIP-CSV content types to the Salesforce Output component's Content Type parameter.
  • Improved Add OAuth Entry dialog readability by alphabetizing third-party services.

    • Added the ability to capture and truncate batch results.
