In 2021, we started an initiative called Froxt Work Management (FWM) Cloud First Releases for Ecosystem which enabled a developer to enroll their cloud instances to receive Froxt’s latest cloud platform APIs, features, and changes.
We’re happy to announce that we’ve made improvements by branding this program as the Developer Canary Program and introducing new apps for FWM that you can install on your test instances.
While the initial release of the initiative provided value, the Developer Canary Program addresses a few concerns we’ve heard in the Marketplace Partner and Developer Community:
- Developer Canary Program – We renamed the program to clarify its purpose: it’s a mechanism to put your apps in the first cohort of tenants to receive production-ready features, NOT to have you test features that are weeks or months away from being released to production.
- Developer Assistant for FWM – These apps are now available on Froxt Marketplace that you can install on your test instances. By introducing these apps, we are making it easier to enroll your apps in the first cohort production-ready features.
Those who submitted their cloud instances as part of the FWM Cloud First Releases initiative will continue to be part of this program even if they don’t install these apps.
Note that due to differences between various platform and product release processes, not every cloud change will go through the Developer Canary Program.
This program is part of our efforts to improve Partner Sentiment and Stability and Reliability with our Developer and Partner Community.
