Prepress Multiple Domains with Apex Support

 

Improvement

  

Great news! We now support multiple custom domains for prepress applications, including apex/root domains!

PostgreSQL v14 Now Supported

 

Improvement

  

We now support PostgreSQL v14! New PostgreSQL installations will install v14 by default. You can of course still specify to install an older version via your manifest.

The PostgreSQL v14 update brings various improvements over PostgreSQL v13, if you are looking for more detail, head over to read the official release notes.

GitHub integration changes

 

Improvement

  

We're simplifying and improving the way code is pulled via our new GitHub integration. Using this integration, we will automatically generate GitHub tokens and use those instead of SSH keys where appropriate. This will provide better granularity for GitHub repository permissions.

For all repositories that have not been granted access through the integration (including those not on GitHub), there is no change in behaviour, and we will continue to use the SSH key as before.

This will be rolled out incrementally to all customers with the GitHub integration.

For more information, please visit our help page on pulling source code.

New Ruby versions released

 

Improvement

  

For our Rails/Rack customers, the latest Ruby releases v3.1.2, v3.0.4, v2.7.6 and v2.6.10 are now available. These are primarily security patch releases. For more information, see the official Ruby release notes

Health Checks Consolidation

 

Improvement

  

We've consolidated health check information into a single section of the Dashboard (under application settings) to simplify configuration and evaluation. Previously, deployment health checks were only available via your manifest configuration. You can now specify an endpoint to check during deployment via the Dashboard.

Find out more in our health checks documentation

Rolling Deployment Improvements

 

Improvement

  

We've just released some improvements to our rolling deployment workflow (for Rails/Rack applications). We now use an improved heuristic to better balance the available server resources across your server deployment groups, and have introduced server tags in case you want to override and control the allocation of server deployment groups yourself.

Lastly we've also included a warning in the Dashboard if you don't have deployment health checks enabled when using rolling deployments, since deployment health checks are integral to ensuring zero-downtime deploys!

New

  

Rails default Node.js now v16

 

Update

  

Our Rails/Rack customers may notice that we now install Node.js v16 when creating new servers. We typically keep this version as stable as possible to avoid breaking older applications, however, if you need a newer or older version to be installed, you can always specify the node.js version in your manifest!

New AWS sizes and regions

 

Update

  

We have added support for the following AWS regions:

  • Asia Pacific (Osaka)
  • Europe (Milan)

In addition, we have added support for the following AWS server size families:

  • c6i
  • hpc6a
  • i3p
