April has been a busy month here and in the cloud community at large; we have quite a bit to share with you!
As always, we are grateful for all your user feedback and product ideas, so keep them coming at firstname.lastname@example.org
- We have added URLs as a first class resource in our application and as a result you can now more easily manage how your domains and URLs relate to your applications across your portfolio.
- Tidal Tools now integrates with AWS Route53 to easily scan, identify, analyze and import your application’s domains into our platform. No more exporting to zone files, which will save you some time! Read the docs here.
You can see more new improvements and fixes in our product changelog.
