There have already been two Terraform Azure provider releases in April and this blog post highlights the new and updated resources in these releases.

Before talking about all of the great new functionality, I would like to start by thanking all of the external contributors to the AzureRM provider for these releases. Our support would not be what it is today without the fantastic community around Azure and Terraform and especially those who take the time out of their busy days to contribute to make the AzureRM provider better.

A huge thank you to all 27 external contributors: Romitgirdhar, Stack72, Lucretius, thatInfrastructureGuy, steven-hawkins, matthewtaylor1995, zusyed, tiwood, kblevmaxbog, pallxk, uberrich, catay, ianmoroney, adamday2, Identytech, joakimhew, bs-matil, dbourcet, mcharriere, RustyF, adubnik, seriously-sian, r0bnet, code-haven, hbuckle, and ljmsc!

On to what’s new in versions 1.24 and 1.25, including lots of new resources and data sources. If you want to get into the nitty-gritty details of the release, check out the change log for the provider within the GitHub repo.

If you are looking for what’s coming up in future releases, we are marking issues that we expect to include in the next release or two by adding the appropriate milestones, which correlate with the release versions. For these details, you can check out the milestones section of the AzureRM repo.
