As we begin 2017, we want to thank you for supporting Heroku. Your creativity and innovation continues to inspire us, and pushed us to deliver even more new products and features in 2016. We especially want to thank everyone who helped us by beta testing, sharing Heroku with others, and providing feedback. Here are the highlights of what became generally available in 2016.
A new way to structure, manage and visualize continuous delivery.
Test code at a shareable URL using disposable Heroku apps that spin up with each GitHub pull request.
Get SSL encryption on custom domains for free on apps that use paid dynos.
Take advantage of the CLI’s faster performance and new usability features.
Powerful collaboration, administration and centralized billing capabilities to build and run more effective development teams.
Run a free app 24/7, or many apps on an occasional basis, using a pool of account-based free dyno hours.
Let the platform keep your apps healthy: get proactive alerts based on app responsiveness and error rates.
Route requests from a given browser to the same dyno, so apps with ‘sticky sessions’ can take advantage of Heroku’s flexible scaling.
Build data-intensive apps with ease using the leading open source solution for managing event streams.
Speed up sequential scans for faster analytics applications, create indexes without blocking writes on tables in production apps, and more.
Read and write Postgres data from Salesforce so you can integrate application data in Heroku with business processes inside Salesforce.
Build repeatable automation for configuring Heroku Connect environments, managing connections across Salesforce orgs, and integrating with existing operational systems.
Have your own private Heroku as a service, with configurable network boundaries, global regions, and private data services for your most demanding enterprise apps.
Use SAML 2.0 identity providers like Salesforce Identity, Ping and Okta for single sign-on to Heroku Enterprise.
Standardize the add-ons your team uses by whitelisting them within your Heroku Enterprise organization.
We look forward to continuing our innovation across developer experience, data services, collaboration, and enterprise controls to help you build more amazing applications. Have a product or feature you'd like to see in 2017? Send us your feedback.
