Health Checks Consolidation

General

We've consolidated health check information into a single section of the Dashboard (under application settings) to simplify configuration and evaluation. Previously, deployment health checks were only available via your manifest configuration. You can now specify an endpoint to check during deployment via the Dashboard.

Find out more in our health checks documentation.

Rolling Deployment Improvements

Rails

We've just released some improvements to our rolling deployment workflow (for Rails/Rack applications). We now use an improved heuristic to better balance the available server resources across your server deployment groups and have introduced server tags in case you want to override and control the allocation of server deployment groups yourself.

Lastly, we've also included a warning in the Dashboard if you don't have deployment health checks enabled when using rolling deployments since health checks are integral to ensuring zero-downtime deploys!

Find out more in our help documentation.
