AKS cluster autoscaling is now available in preview. This service enables you to scale more efficiently and run your applications without downtime. Based on the Kubernetes cluster autoscaler, AKS autoscaling automatically adds new instances to the Azure virtual machine scale set when more capacity is required and removes them when no longer needed. Combine it with the horizontal pod autoscaler to precisely tune the scaling behavior of your environment to match your workloads.
Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) is now generally available in France Central. It's the 18th Azure region to offer the service. In the list of regions, you can see where AKS is available and where it's coming next.
A security vulnerability was announced recently in runC, the low-level container runtime that supports Docker and associated container engines, which affects Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). As a best practice, we'll apply the Open Container Initiative (OCI) update to applicable services that we maintain.
Microsoft has built a new version of the Moby container runtime that includes the OCI update to address this vulnerability. To consume that new container runtime release, you'll need to upgrade your Kubernetes cluster. Any upgrade will suffice, because it will ensure that all existing nodes are removed and replaced with new nodes that include the patched runtime.

We have been making continuous enhancements to Azure DevOps Projects and in the latest deployment now available to all customers, we have added support for Azure Cosmos DB and Azure Functions as target destinations for your application. This builds on the existing Azure App Service, Azure SQL Database, and Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) support.
We'll start updating the Azure Monitor for containers agent (01/09/19 build version) this week in all regions. This update has fixes to enhance reliability and performance for the agent.
The agent in Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) clusters will be automatically upgraded. No action is required from customers.
Azure Monitor for containers, now generally available, monitors the health and performance of Kubernetes clusters hosted on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). Since the launch of the preview of this service at Build (May 2018), there has been a lot of excitement from customers about the new capabilities, such as the ability to enable monitoring as soon as you create an AKS cluster. It’s also now possible to get all the monitoring telemetry in a centralized location in Azure without having to sign into containers or rely on other tools.
