We posted a blog recently with Spring updates from Splunk Developer and wanted to share it here, too where we can discuss! Already working on the Summer update so let us know if there's anything you'd like to see in that upcoming newsletter.
Is it the middle of Spring already? (And Fall, for our Southern Hemisphere readers!) A lot has happened at Splunk since our last developer updates at.conf19. In case you missed any of thegreat developer sessionsthere, grab some time to watch what you missed!
Beginning in July, theSplunkbase App Archive Policywill be updated to align with theSplunk Support Policyand the currently supported versions of Splunk Enterprise. Apps in Splunkbase that have not been updated within two years, or are not compatible with a currently-supported version of Splunk Enterprise, will be archived.
App authors will still receive pre-archive notification one month in advance. To prevent an app from being archived, just submit an update that is compatible with a supported release of Splunk Enterprise.
Also starting in June, Product Compatibility options for Splunk Enterprise will no longer have Splunk Enterprise 7.0 and older release options to select when submitting an app, updating an app, or searching for an app.

Visual Studio Code Splunk Extension
Writing an extension to Splunk in Python? You could be using Microsoft Visual Studio Code to speed your development. Visual Studio Code is a free, cross-platform, highly rated code editor from Microsoft that provides a rich development environment including debugging capabilities such as breakpoints, stepping into code, variable inspection, and displaying the call stack. Visual Studio Code is extensible, and the Splunk integration takes advantage of the extensibility to provide intelligence about Splunk .conf files and interact with Splunk via the editor.Read more here.
More New Releases and Updates
Did you see the release of Java Logging Libraries v1.8? This update includes feature improvements and bug fixes to address memory leaks, decrease memory usage, and stop data loss!
The updatedAppInspect CLI and API v2.1.0add a lot of great new checks for Python 3 and testing against Splunk 8.0.2 for improved measurement of readiness with Splunk Cloud.
