Welcome to a new and exciting year of App Service updates, December 2017 was a quality milestone for the App Service team and over the break we delivered over 60 general quality of life and performance improvements for both the App Service and Functions experience in the Azure portal. Now that we are in February it’s time to share some of the improvements and new features we delivered in January 2018

Application Settings UX refresh

The new application settings ux uses the same code base across App Service, Azure Functions and Web Apps for Containers. It provides a consistent look and feel, improves performance and allows us to deliver improvements and new features across all 3 products with less duplicated work.
