Who’s ready for the release?  The last few releases have been absolutely chock-full of new features and Salesforce is showing no signs of slowing down, which is both exciting and really scary at the same time!

I could fill pages upon pages about the cool things coming out in Summer ’14, but here are just a few of my highlights:
