Account Usage: New CLASS_INSTANCES View¶
With this release, we are pleased to announce the CLASS_INSTANCES view in the Account Usage schema of the shared SNOWFLAKE database. This view returns one row for each class instance in the account.
A class is an extensible object type that serves as a blueprint for creating instances. You can create an instance of a class and execute its methods (procedures and functions) to take advantage of the advanced functionality that classes provide. For a list of available classes, see the SQL Class Reference.
For more information, see CLASS_INSTANCES View.

With this release, we are pleased to announce the general availability of the SYSTEM$SEND_EMAIL() system stored procedure for sending email notifications. You can call this stored procedure to send an email notification from a task, your own stored procedure, or an interactive session.
