Azure Pipelines is currently investing in updating and removing some of its hosted images. These changes are designed to ensure we are able to better serve the needs of our growing user base. As a result, a set of exciting changes are coming during the months of January –
Over the past year, we have been able to update Azure Pipelines hosted images faster than ever before. We have also rolled out new images – Windows Server 2019 with Visual Studio 2019, Ubuntu 18.04, and macOS Mojave 10.14. We have seen a phenomenal growth in the use of hosted pools.
This year, I’ve been privileged to work with a great team across the DevOps community and help co-chair the new DeliveryConf conference, a non-profit conference dedicated to the technical aspects of Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery. I am looking forward to all the fantastic technical sessions on CI/CD!
Codecov.io added tokenless uploading of coverage results for public Azure Pipelines.
The new Review Apps feature of Azure Pipelines (in preview) allows developers to dynamically create environments on every Pull Request, to test applications consisting of multiple microservices.
New preview capabilities for Azure Pipelines let you define artifact policies that are enforced before deploying to critical environments such as production. You will be able to define custom policies that are evaluated against all the deployable artifacts in a given pipeline run and block the deployment if the artifacts don't comply.
What's new with Azure Pipelines. We've updated Continuous Delivery capabilities with triggers on other pipelines and Azure Container Registry, and implemented new deployment strategies for VMs and Kubernetes. We're also making Pipeline Caching and Pipeline Artifacts generally available.
With this update, Azure Pipelines supports test attachments bigger than 100MB in size, which means you can now upload big files like crash dumps or videos with failed tests, aiding your troubleshooting experience.
I'm excited to announce the public previews of pipeline caching and pipeline artifacts in Azure Pipelines. Together, these technologies can make every run of your pipeline faster by accelerating the transfer of artifacts between jobs and stages, and by caching the results of common operations like package restores.
