On behalf of the team, I am pleased to announce the release of Spring Cloud Skipper 1.0 M1.

  • Substitute variables in Mustache templated files that describe how to deploy applications to a platform.
  • Search Package Repositories for existing applications.
  • Upgrade/Rollback a package based on a simple blue/green workflow.

Dear Spring community,
