1. Dynamic Domain URL
New URL method introduced by Salesforce in Winter 2020, System.URL.getOrgDomainUrl(), is now used to replace string manipulation using URL.getSalesforceBaseUrl(). This will resolve issue launching Valorx Apps in Org with custom URL and issue where Visualforce URL is being passed to Valorx Home during launch from CRM.

API to execute Valorx App Launch, VX_Cloud.LaunchApp(String AppId, String workflowId, String contextId), is added to support launching Valorx Apps from customer existing process.
3. Removal of Mode
Mode parameter is removed because the VF page is now dedicated for Launch from Salesforce. Wind will be callable from a dedicated Valorx Wind package.
New in this release
1. Fast Launch
There are no delays in launching when the app is launched from CRM if Excel is already running. The apps launch even faster if a connection to the CRM is connected from which the launch is initiated. In addition to this it will also pick up the first matching connection of the CRM and will make it Active.
2. Runtime ready attachments
Document task has now new option named “Resume Valorx Runtime”. User can check this option to attach a runtime ready document with the ability to go from offline to online mode. To use this feature App must have “Enable Offline Mode” checked in app settings. It also requires relevant Document task to have File Format set to “Excel” and Selection must be “Workbook”. Attachments uploaded with such Document tasks prompt user to go online on opening the document so that User can resume Valorx Runtime with downloaded document.
3. User Selection Query Preview
Users can now preview and get the look and feel of User Selection query task while designing the same. As and when user selects one single display field, the Preview button appears, and user can preview the query with real records.
To make it more convenient to use while creating workflows, we have also added the query preview support in workflow designer as well. The Preview button appears on mouse over of user selection query step.
4. Custom labels for User Selection Query
