Changelog #52 - New service form available for everyone, faster builds, Koyeb environment variables at build time, and more

Hello, and welcome to this week’s changelog update! Let’s jump into what’s new:

  1. New service form available for everyone
    The new service configuration form offers a more intuitive and efficient way to configure your service, enhancing your deployment experience. Bonus: use keyboard shortcuts to quickly access specific configuration sections and deploy :rocket:

  2. Faster builds

    We’ve optimized the build process to speed up new deployments. Some internal tasks performed during the build are now done asynchronously reducing build times.

  3. Koyeb environment variables at build time

    Koyeb environment variables are now exposed at build time. This is useful if your application needs to access internal information during the build like knowing the App public domain, Service name, and more. Previously, Koyeb environment variables were only exposed at run time.
