We're excited to share that the 6.4 release of the Service Fabric runtime has started rolling out to the various Azure regions along with tooling and SDK updates. This release was announced at Ignite earlier this year, and over the next couple of weeks, the updates will be available in all the Azure regions.
What's new in Service Fabric 6.4?
- Create and manage Azure clusters with Windows Server version 1803 (with the ability to run Windows Server version 1803 container images)
- General availability of the automatic backup and restore service that allows you to backup the data in Stateful Reliable Collections and Reliable Actors without any code. A viewer for data is being shipped independently.
- General availability of EventStore APIs for easier diagnostics (with integration in Service Fabric Explorer).
- Linux cluster events are now pumped to syslog and can be viewed in Log Analytics.
In addition, the releases contain many bug fixes, stability improvements and performance fixes. For the full list of all the changes, refer to the release notes.
Stay tuned for a post on the refresh for Service Fabric Mesh in the coming days.
