Good news for sure. Did it work without messing about with kext security issues or anything like it does on El Cap DP2?

I have an SSD installed in my 2011 MacBook Pro right now, and I used Trim Enabler.
What does this do for me exactly?
It will natively enable TRIM using an official Apple utility rather than a third party work around (hack).

Although, the dev. of TRIM Enabler has said he will be updating the app to use the trimforce command, so once that is done there will be no difference. But for now, I would say using the new command is better.

That is great news!
Before update, I want to make sure:
I have trim enabler (enabled), so I need to disable trim enabler, reboot, update to 10.10.4 then use terminal for trimforce. Is this it?

That stuff doesn't exist in Yosemite. Just run the command, and it works.

I was referring to the kext signing that exists in Yosemite. So it appears the trimforce command can be run without disabling kext signing in Yosemite.

No need to touch kext signing. Only run the terminal command, accept the terms, confirm you want to continue, and then reboot.

So, it's definitely a better solution at this moment, virtually risk free.

Yep, Before installing 10.10.4, I disabled Trim in Disk Sensei. After installation I enabled Trim with the Terminal, and viola, Trim is enabled on all 4 of my Samsung SSDs. Disk Sensai has the message "Trim has not been enabled, but is working anyway".

And Apple - IT'S ABOUT TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!

Working here, Disabled Trim Enabler, rebooted and ran command "sudo trimforce enable" from terminal.
Be aware its asks to reboot after enabling Trim.
By the way 10.10.4 has black screen background on my Mini now instead of white at startup!
Working on Samsung 840 EVO 120gb
Trim Enabler now reports
"The patch is not active, but Trim is working. You probably have an Apple SSD, which supports Trim by default."
