New create function experience
We have a brand new function creation experience that includes among other improvements the ability to search templates by keywords as well as filtering templates by language and scenario.
Functions on Linux App Service Plans
You can now select Linux App Service plans to host your Function apps. You can read more about this scenario here: The Azure Functions on Linux Preview
Support for HTTPS Only
This was one of the most requested features in our Uservoice forum and it is now available in production.
This feature can be found under Custom Domain in the left menu and works for apps hosted on Windows as well as Linux App Service Plans.
When this feature is enabled all traffic reaching an HTTP hostname in your app will be redirected to it’s HTTPS equivalent. Make sure all custom hostnames have a valid SSL binding to avoid browser validation errors.
This feature also includes the ability to add bindings to existing hostnames directly from this blade.
Quick Start refresh
We have updated the App Service Quickstart for Windows and Linux based apps, scenario cards now link to existing scenario documentation on https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/app-service/ where they are frequently updated and provide a lot more content and more advanced scenarios.
