Lightning Deploy Mode is a new setting in TDS Classic 5.7 that can be found in the build window.
This setting can be used to enable Lightning Mode for all deployments that utilize the TDS Sitecore Connector in their configuration, improving their speed and efficiency.
Enabling Lightning Mode means that a new step is added to the deployment. After deployment properties are used to determine which items should be deployed, a comparison is made between the target and source items using their revision IDs and only those items with differences are deployed.
Be aware there is the potential for items to be missed in your deployment if the target and source revision IDs match when they should not.
