Three new features are available in Azure Update Management. These features drastically improve the power and flexibility of Update Management. These include Pre/Post deployment tasks (preview), dynamic groups (preview), and Update Inclusion.
Python 2 runbook support in Azure Automation is generally available.
You can now import, author, and run Python 2 runbooks in Azure or on a Hybrid Runbook Worker. This includes the ability to upload Python 2 packages to be imported by Python 2 runbooks running serverlessly in Azure. It also includes the ability to use other Automation resources, such as schedules, variables, connections, and credentials. Supported package types include Python wheel packages and packages that have been source distribution compressed in the *.tar.gz format.
You can now use Change Tracking and Inventory to detect changes and discover the configuration for Windows files through the use of recursion, wildcards, and environment variables. This enables you to track system critical files with settings such as %winDir%\System32\*.* or C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config\*.config . (Note that Linux support is already available for recursion and wildcards.)
Update Management has added a new option for update deployments. When you edit or create a new update deployment, there's a field called Reboot options. You can use these to control if and when a machine will reboot.
Azure Automation is now available in the Azure Korea Central and West US 2 regions. These new regions give you more options for locating Automation accounts in geographic locations that work best for you.
