Get ready for Spring ’13
Starting on the 1st February Salesforce.com will be rolling out the new Spring ’13 release to production environments as well as the remaining sandbox instances that haven’t already been updated (http://trust.salesforce.com/trust/maintenance/). The roll-out is expected to take just over a week with the final instances being updated on the 9th.
The expected downtime is just 5 minutes meaning that you won’t be able to access your org for this short period. As always there’s nothing to do as a salesforce customer other than to familiarise yourself with the new features or enhancements that will be introduced. If you’re a developer it’s always worth upgrading the Force.com IDE and downloading the latest version of the data loader.
