Focus Your Team by Defining Your Tech Debt Analysis Scope
Architecture Dashboard now gives architects and team leads the ability to ignore teams, apps, Forge components, and individual modules. You will be able to bulk-ignore modules instead of going through an extensive list. Analyzing all modules in a factory can result in a misleading technical debt score, and developers may waste time resolving issues that are not a priority. To help your development team focus on the highest priorities, you can control what gets analyzed or ignored on the next sync. Learn more about ignoring modules during tech debt analysis.

Platform Server Launches Progressive Modules Preparation
Upgrading the Platform Server is easier with the new progressive modules preparation. Instead of compiling all modules at once, the process occurs in small batches. Now, you can work on other modules while one batch is in preparation and resume the development of top consumed modules faster as the Platform Server prepares those first. The modules preparation is more resilient to failures: it no longer restarts from scratch if an error occurs, and if you need to relaunch, the already successfully prepared modules won't be included in the retry, making it better and faster.
Try Platform Server's new version 11.15.0.
