New Releases & Enhancements:

Horizontal Pod Autoscaler: (Read the HPA blog here!) 

Step 1: Before starting a deployment to an environment, CD-as-a-Service takes note of the scale that your application is currently running and maintains this scale until the deployment to the environment is finished.

Support for Traffic Management with Service Mesh Interface (SMI) 

Today, progressive deployments scales up the new version slowly, and routes a percentage of new traffic based on the percentage of pods running the old version and the new version. This requires us to scale down the old version as we scale up the new version, which prevents instantaneous rollback if an issue is discovered.

Update your deployment configuration to specify the SMI service to route traffic for.
