Dynatrace SaaS release notes version 1.221
- Answer-driven release validation with Dynatrace Cloud Automation
As organizations aim for faster delivery of value to their customers, the frequency of releases inevitably increases, which introduces risks and uncertainty into production systems—unless automated tests and quality gates can be leveraged to provide confidence.

New menu design
Because the Dynatrace Software Intelligence Platform comes with so many capabilities right out of the box and offers so many additional options, we knew we needed to make it easier for you to find exactly what you're looking for.
That's why, starting with Dynatrace version 1.221, the Dynatrace menu has a totally new design.
Dynatrace capabilities are organized into groups tailored to broad use cases
The menu filter lets you display only the entries that match what you're looking for
- The Favorites section lets you build a list of your personal favorites, so they're always right at your fingertips
Anonymization of user events
Kubernetes monitoring now provides the Container restarts metric,
builtin:cloud.kubernetes.pod.containerRestarts. The number of container restarts within a pod.
RUM: Filter for HTTP error code ranges
In the application pages, you can now filter data using the HTTP error code ranges.
You can now disable license-related notifications for non-admin users.
Extensions 2.0: extension package size limit
We increased the extension package size limit to 500 KB to accommodate space for the requests library for coming Python extensions.
Shared dashboards are presets now
We migrated shared dashboards to presets.
- The published property (in both the web UI and the API) is no longer in use.
- The preset property has the same effect, making the dashboard visible for everyone in the environment.
