DNS Flag Day is February 1, 2019. On this day, DNS providers will stop supporting certain workarounds that enable name resolution for domains hosted on DNS servers that don't fully conform to EDNS standards. For more information, visit dnsflagday.net. You can test domains for compliance by using tools on that page. 
At this time, DNS services across Microsoft are testing as "All ok" or "Minor problems detected" on dnsflagday.net. Domains that test as "Minor problems detected" will not be affected on DNS Flag Day. Azure DNS and Azure Traffic Manager fixes are currently being rolled out to resolve these minor issues. Fixes for microsoft.com, xbox.com, and other domains are in progress. Some of these fixes will not be fully deployed until after DNS Flag Day. This is not expected to cause any impact to our customers or services.

Other updates:

Scheduled runbooks will use the latest modules in your automation account
Azure Automation currently uses the version of the modules in your automation for scheduled runbook jobs at the time the schedule was created. This behavior has caused confusion for customers because when they update their modules, they expect that all future scheduled jobs will use the latest version.
To address this feedback, Azure Automation will start using the latest modules in your automation account when a new scheduled job is run. You should test any runbooks that have linked schedules by starting them manually. This will validate that your scheduled runbooks continue to work correctly.
If you have not updated any modules since you created your schedules, this change won't affect you.


In Azure Traffic Manager, two new features related to endpoint health are now generally available: Fast Failover and TCP Probing.

Azure Storage Service Encryption (SSE) is now supported for Azure Managed Disks. SSE provides encryption-at-rest and helps safeguard your data.
