  • New: Added support for Aiven (Database-as-a-Service provider).

  • Changed: We changed the default deployment behaviour so that workloads no longer wait for a successful readiness probe before terminating the old pods. This means that the state of the namespace will match the requested deployment, but will mean that pods might be in a failed state. These will be reported in the UI. It will also mean deployments complete much faster. We are working on Blue/Green Deployments to provide a reliable way of ensuring environment wide consistency.

  • Improved: Both, our GitHub Action as well as our CircleCI Orb, now support the specification of additional docker arguments (e.g., build-args).

  • New: We created an Environment Settings Screen that bundles all environment-specific settings. We moved the Automation Rules and environment-specific Shared values and secrets overrides into this new screen. We now also allow users to specify a namespace in Kubernetes for each environment. This has been supprted by the API but not by the UI.

  • New: We are now allowing users to delete environments directly from the environment dropdown menu on the App Details Screen.

  • New: Out-of-the-box support for Amazon S3 buckets as Dynamic Resources.
