Release highlights

App Configuration 1.3.0-beta.3 Changelog

Features Added

  • Added a new type, SnapshotSelector, to encapsulate parameters like name, fields, and status within the GetSnapshots method.

Bugs Fixed

  • Fixed GetConfigurationSettings(SettingSelector) not setting ContentType and LastModified properties (#38524).
  • FeatureFlagConfigurationSetting will now allow custom attributes under the conditions element in the setting value. Previously, only client_filters was recognized and other data would be discarded.

Cognitive Search 11.5.0-beta.5 Changelog

Breaking Changes

  • In SearchOptions, the IList<SearchQueryVector> Vectors property has been removed in favor of the abstract base type IList<VectorQuery> VectorQueries.
  • In SearchField, the vectorSearchConfiguration property has been removed in favor of the new VectorSearchProfile property.
  • In VectorSearch, AlgorithmConfigurations has been renamed to Algorithms.

Features Added

  • Added support for VectorSearch.Vectorizers, which contains configuration options for vectorizing text vector queries, and VectorSearch.Profiles, which define combinations of configurations to use with vector search.
  • Added the VectorSearchAlgorithmConfiguration base type, containing configuration options specific to the algorithm used during indexing and/or querying. Derived classes include ExhaustiveKnnVectorSearchAlgorithmConfiguration and HnswVectorSearchAlgorithmConfiguration.
  • Added the SearchOptions.VectorQueries base type, which is used for the query parameters for vector and hybrid search queries. Derived classes include VectorizableTextQuery and RawVectorQuery. With RawVectorQuery, users can pass raw vector values for vector search, while VectorizableTextQuery allows the passing of text values to be vectorized for vector search.
  • Added SearchOptions.VectorFilterMode, determining whether filters are applied before or after vector search is executed.
  • Added SearchOptions.SemanticQuery, which enables the setting of a dedicated search query for semantic reranking, semantic captions, and semantic answers.
  • Added support for AzureOpenAIEmbeddingSkill, which enables the generation of vector embeddings for given text inputs using the Azure Open AI service.
  • Added SearchIndexStatistics.VectorIndexSize, which reports the amount of memory consumed by vectors in the index.
  • Added KnowledgeStore.Parameters, which defines a dictionary of knowledge store-specific configuration properties.
  • Added SearchIndexerSkillset.IndexProjections, which specifies additional projections to secondary search indexes.

Communication Messages 1.0.0-beta.1 Changelog

This is the first Public Preview release of Azure Communication Services for advanced messages. For more information, please see the README and [documentation][documentation].

This is a Public Preview version, so breaking changes are possible in subsequent releases as we improve the product. To provide feedback, please submit an issue in our Azure SDK for .NET GitHub repo.

Communication Rooms 1.1.0-beta.1 Changelog

Features Added

  • Added support for PSTN dial-out capability

Event Grid 4.19.0 Changelog

Features Added

  • Added new system events for Resource Notifications and Azure Communication Services.

Identity 1.10.2 Changelog

Bugs Fixed

  • Bug fixes for development time credentials.

Monitor Ingestion 1.1.0-beta.1 Changelog

Bugs Fixed

  • Fix sovereign support for US Gov and China clouds

Monitor Ingestion 1.1.0 Changelog

Features Added

  • Added LogsIngestionAudience for multi-cloud support to allow users to select the Azure cloud where the resource is located.

OpenAI Inference 1.0.0-beta.8 Changelog

Bugs Fixed

  • Support for the described breaking change for PromptFilterResults was added and this library version will now again deserialize PromptFilterResults appropriately
  • PromptFilterResults and ContentFilterResults are now exposed on the result classes for streaming Completions and Chat Completions. Streaming(Chat)Completions.PromptFilterResults will report an index-sorted list of all prompt annotations received so far while Streaming(Chat)Choice.ContentFilterResults will reflect the latest-received content annotations that were populated and received while streaming

Breaking Changes

  • The underlying representation of PromptFilterResults (for Completions and ChatCompletions) has had its response body key changed from prompt_annotations to prompt_filter_results
  • Prior versions of the Azure.AI.OpenAI library may no longer populate PromptFilterResults as expected and it’s highly recommended to upgrade to this version if the use of Azure OpenAI content moderation annotations for input data is desired
  • If a library version upgrade is not immediately possible, it’s advised to use Response<T>.GetRawResponse() and manually extract the prompt_filter_results object from the top level of the Completions or ChatCompletions response Content payload

Features Added

  • Audio Transcription and Audio Translation using OpenAI Whisper models is now supported. See OpenAI’s API reference or the Azure OpenAI quickstart for detailed overview and background information.
  • The new methods GetAudioTranscription and GetAudioTranscription expose these capabilities on OpenAIClient
  • Transcription produces text in the primary, supported, spoken input language of the audio data provided, together with any optional associated metadata
  • Translation produces text, translated to English and reflective of the audio data provided, together with any optional associated metadata
  • These methods work for both Azure OpenAI and non-Azure client configurations

OpenTelemetry AspNetCore 1.0.0-beta.7 Changelog

Other Changes

  • Update OpenTelemetry dependencies (#38568) (#38833)
  • OpenTelemetry 1.6.0
  • OpenTelemetry.Extensions.Hosting 1.6.0
  • OpenTelemetry.ResourceDetectors.Azure 1.0.0-beta.3

OpenTelemetry AspNetCore 1.0.0-beta.8 Changelog

Breaking Changes

  • Removed package references to the beta versions of OpenTelemetry.Instrumentation.AspNetCore, OpenTelemetry.Instrumentation.Http, and OpenTelemetry.Instrumentation.SqlClient. Instead, these packages are now internally vendored within the distro. Due to this change, users will no longer be able to access the public APIs of these beta packages. Manually adding package references to these instrumentation libraries in an application will cause the internal vendored instrumentation from the distro to be ignored. If users choose to add these references, they must ensure to update their configuration subsequently. This includes incorporating the necessary instrumentation using either TracerProviderBuilder or MeterProviderBuilder.

OpenTelemetry Exporter 1.0.0 Changelog

Bugs Fixed

  • Fixed an issue during network failures which prevented the exporter to store the telemetry offline for retrying at a later time. (#38832)
