You can now use Managed Updates for your single-instance environments in AWS Elastic Beanstalk. With Managed Updates, Elastic Beanstalk automatically updates your environment to the latest version of the underlying platform running your application during specified maintenance windows. Previously, you could only use Managed Updates for Load Balanced, auto scaling environments. To get started, you must enable Managed Updates using the Elastic Beanstalk console, EB CLI, or API.

You can now also use immutable deployments to deploy application and configuration updates to single-instance environments. Compared to the default deployment setting for single-instance environments, immutable deployments reduce downtime and the risk of deployment failures.

Additionally, Elastic Beanstalk now lets you apply 47 tags to resources in your Elastic Beanstalk environment. Previously, you could only apply seven tags. Learn more about tagging here.
