v1.5.0 - Tag Release, Promote and Stability Transparency
new
Tag and Promote is a feature we have been thinking about for a while and are excited to share. The feature is in
beta
but it allows you to create
pipelines
to setup many environments and promote releases between them. When you promote a release from one environment to another, it guarantees the exact same image will be promoted. You also can configure new environment variables prior to confirming the promotion of your service which is known as a
Needs Config
state. Learn more in our docs.
