Today, AWS Copilot  launched version 1.2 which now provides more deployment capabilities for applications hosted on Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS).

AWS Copilot now lets you add a pipeline to safely deploy resources from AWS CodeCommit repositories, in addition to the existing GitHub repository option. All deployments from AWS Copilot now use ECS deployment circuit breakers by default, letting you detect and roll back failed deployments quickly. Finally, you can view the progress of your deployment with a new progress UI displayed in your CLI shell, giving you more insight to the status of your deployment and resources being modified.

AWS Copilot can deploy applications to AWS Fargate supported regions and is available for download on Mac, Linux, and Windows here. You can also refer to the AWS Copilot release notes for v1.2 here.
