TL;DR 132 — October 25th, 2018

Build better apps in a smaller bundle

Playtime is our annual global event series for Google Play and it kicked off last week with some exciting updates to the platform. Take a look at the post to learn about updates to app bundles, the instant apps size limit increase, reducing crash rates and improving quality, and much more.

Spinnaker’s Kubernetes support

Spinnaker now includes a new Kubernetes provider that allows you to take advantage of the full flexibility of Kubernetes, while abstracting away much of the complexity of managing manifests. It also integrates with the Helm package manager to template your manifests, and includes initial support for traffic shaping via Istio. Details and screenshots are on the post.

Compose Actions in Gmail Add-ons make it easy for you to add attachments, reference records, or liven up your messages with content from your favorite third-party apps right as you draft your message in Gmail. And they’re now generally available. Head on over to the post for some examples and a link to the documentation.

Go 1.11 on App Engine

The Go 1.11 runtime is now available in beta in the App Engine standard environment. For all the details and a video to help you get started, head on over to the post.

NASA’s Frontier Development Lab’s 2018 Astrobiology mission to simulate and classify the possible atmospheres of exoplanets in the search for signs of life. For more on what that means, what the teams did, and what’s next, take a look at the post.
