Support for .Net framework 4.6

You can now configure your apps to use .Net framework 4.6.


Process Explorer

Process Explorer got some reliability fixes as well as a facelift to include process icons making it easier to differentiate between the website process, site extensions, web jobs and kudu processes.



We made some improvements to better handle large directories, making the UI a lot more responsive.


New CI provider: OneDrive

You can now setup a OneDrive folder for continuous deployments.


App Service Plan essentials

App Service Plan essentials now provides app counts across Web/Mobile and slots. Browse also includes all types in a unified list.


Tools menu

We included Events and Alerts in the tools menu.


App Service Environment updates

New ASE Create experience

We took all the learnings from the re-vamp of the Web App create experience and applied them to App Service Environment creates. The result is a much more streamlined experience, eliminating all “locking” and requiring minimal inputs.


ASE Autoscale support

You can now do metrics and schedule based auto-scale on App Service Environment Worker Pools and Front Ends.


Full resource blades for Worker Pools and Front Ends

Front Ends and Worker Pools can now be managed as individual resources.



IP addresses management experience

New App Service Environment IP management experience to scale IP addresses and consume them in apps hosted in an App Service Environment.


Alert support for all App Service Environment resource types

You can now setup metrics-based alerts on App Service Environments, Worker Pools and Front Ends, to receive email notifications or trigger the new web hooks functionality.


ClearDB cluster support

We also delivered the new Hi-Performance MySQL SKU for ClearDB. This includes support for mission critical databases as well as a refined create experience based on our learning from the Web App create experience re-vamp.
