We are excited to share a roll-up of our features on a bi-weekly basis, with information on features from Experiment to GA. This is our way of taking you on the journey of how an “Idea Becomes a Feature.” You can track features as they go from Experiment to Early Release and then to General Availability. Here is a link to the Early Release, Beta, and GA definitions here at Armory.

We are currently working on a number of new experiments. We look forward to sharing more with you next time.

Here are some of our recent GA features:
- Policy Engine for SDLC: Armory’s newly released Open Policy Agent (OPA)-based Policy Engine for SDLC gives enterprises fine-grained control of the software delivery process by providing the hooks necessary to perform extensive verification of pipelines, processes, and policies in Spinnaker.
