This month's release brings some exciting new features including support for Azure Service Fabric, HSTS, optional lifecycles and performance improvements, among other things!
Once a week we have a short "TL;DR" meeting where team members present things that are interesting. We're going to start recording and posting portions of them to YouTube each week. This first one was about some performance improvements.
