5.Login Access Policy Changed

   The Administrators Can Log in as Any User setting on the Setup > Security Controls > Login Access Policies page is available by default.

    Now you can delete a process, as long as it:

  1.         Isn’t active
  2.         Doesn’t have any pending scheduled actions


7.Update Fields Using Formulas and Date Functions in Process 

   When your process updates fields, you can now use formulas and date functions as the value.


8.Comply with Data Protection Requirements Using Platform Encryption

   Platform Encryption encrypts sensitive data for compliance with common regulatory requirements.

You can encrypt the below things.

  1.         Encrypt files and attachments.
  2.         Encrypt certain standard and custom fields.
  3.         Use an advanced key management system.

9.Test Your My Domain Login Page Settings Before You Deploy the Domain to All Users

Now, you can set up a new domain and test the login page settings without deploying the domain to all users.


10.Reduced Access for Apex Classes Using with sharing Keyword

Apex classes defined with the with sharing keyword no longer have unfiltered access to the User object if it’s set to private by the organization’s sharing rules.


11.Iteration Order for Maps and Sets Is Now Predictable

  The order of elements in unordered collections (Map and Set) is now the same each time your code is run.


12.New Code Coverage Calculation for Multi line Statements

Code coverage has changed for statements that are written on multiple lines. Each line that contains an expression is now included in the code coverage calculation for covered and uncovered code. Previously, a multi line statement was calculated as one line of code in code coverage. This change affects all API versions.
