Heroku CLI v2.36.1 released with support for app forking

Change effective on 02 April 2013

A new version of the Heroku CLI is available with support for the fork operation. Forking clones an app, including config vars and Heroku Postgres data, and re-provision add-ons, to a new app.

Update your toolbelt and fork an existing application:
