Using application groups, you can create logical groupings between client applications that connect (publish or consume events) with Event Hubs and apply throttling and data access policies per each group. You can associate an application group with a uniquely identifiable condition such as the security context (shared access signatures (SAS) or Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) application ID - of the client application). By defining an application group and using application group policies, you can throttle low priority producers or consumers while allowing high priority producers or consumers to stream data without any interruptions.

Durable Functions, an extension to Azure Functions that lets you define stateful serverless workflows in code, now supports Java. You can use Durable Functions to implement complex function orchestration that would otherwise require writing lots of boilerplate code for state management. In this preview, you can leverage existing Durable Functions patterns such as "function chaining", "fan out/fan in", "async http APIs", "monitor", and "human interaction".

This version has significant performance and robustness advantage over the old version. This new major release reduces orchestration time by more than 50%. Your improvement may vary, but we expect most workloads to experience increased runtime performance from this release, especially for high-scale workloads. This release makes use of new features in the Durable Functions Extension to prevent race-conditions that cause orchestrations to get stuck in large fan-out-fan-in scenarios, especially when durable timers are involved. Important Note: There are a few breaking changes in this release for certain edge use cases.

Azure API Management support for Content Security Policy is now generally available for both the developer portal and the self-hosted portal. This support enhances security and removes the need for custom functionality in the self-hosted portal. Content Security Policy in the developer portal helps you detect and mitigate common attacks including cross-site scripting and data injection, reducing exposure to data theft, site defacement, or malware distribution. CORS configuration enables self-hosted portals to use API Management’s implementation of Captcha verification, OAuth token retrieval in the test console, and authentication or subscription delegation, removing the need to implement and maintain custom functionality.

Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) clusters, whether deployed into a managed or custom virtual network, have certain outbound dependencies necessary to function properly. Previously, in environments requiring internet access to be routed through HTTP proxies, this was a problem. Nodes had no way of bootstrapping the configuration, environment variables, and certificates necessary to access internet services. This feature, now generally available, adds HTTP proxy support for AKS clusters, exposing a straightforward interface that cluster operators can use to secure AKS-required network traffic in proxy-dependent environments.
