Analysed ENV Variables UI Update

 

Improvement

  

We've released an improvement to the way we handle environment variables when deploying a brand new application. We will now clearly show the environment variables that we have detected your application needs, and will auto-create, if you choose to deploy your databases via Cloud 66 (i.e. if you're not hosting your databases externally).

If you are hosting your databases externally, we will no longer create the corresponding environment variables unless you override our values by importing new values from a file, or by adding them manually via the UI. See our help documentation for additional information.

New Ruby versions released

 

Update

  

For our Rails/Rack users, the latest Ruby security patch releases are now available. This includes Ruby 3.0.3, 2.7.5 and 2.6.9. For more information, see the official release notes.

Disk Space inode Usage

 

Improvement

  

Effective immediately, disk space reporting (and disk alerts) now includes tracking of inode usage! To see your disk space usage, navigate to your server detail page. See our help documentation for more information.

Application Protection

 

New

  

You can now protect your applications from actions that may affect their stability & availability. Application Protection disables deployments, scaling down of servers, and application deletion. You can enable and disable this setting via your application's settings page!

Google Cloud Server Service Accounts

 

New

  

You can now use a manifest declaration to bind a service account to your Google Cloud server instances when they are created. For more information, and manifest examples, please see our help documentation

Support Ticket Images

 

Update

  

You can now attach screenshots (or other images) to new support tickets, to help explain the issue you're experiencing. This quality of life improvement means that you can provide more information when a ticket is created, meaning faster ticket turnaround times!

Announcing Dashboard Application Groups

 

New

  

You can now group your applications together on the dashboard. Application Groups allow you to deploy collections of applications simultaneously! Your applications can be grouped either manually, or by name, tags, environment or branch. Applications are not limited to a single group. For more information see our Application Groups help pages.

Fast Scaling Maestro Services

 

Improvement

  

We are happy to announce an improvement to the way in which Maestro services are edited (this includes scaling up/down of service counts). Now, you can change one (or more) Maestro services via the UI and apply those changes independently of a deployment. A big improvement due to this is that scaling up or down no longer restarts all pods, and only adds or removes pods as required.

When you make scaling changes to your services, don't forget to apply them by clicking on the Apply button on the top of the server list.

Please note while previously deploying an application would apply your scaling changes at the same time, this is not the case anymore and scaling changes will not be applied during a normal deployment.

New Dashboard Table View

 

New

  

We are pleased to introduce a new Table application dashboard view. For users with large numbers of applications, this is the first step in making the dashboard view more scannable/usable. Additionally, using this new dashboard view, you can now start deployment of multiple applications at once! Please give it a try and let us know your feedback!

Default NGINX Configuration updated

 

Update

  

We've updated the SSL configuration in our newest NGINX configuration to provide a higher level of transport security. This means that by default, newly created applications will no longer support very old clients that rely on less-secure protocols, although this can be overridden if you require.

The new NGINX configuration is applied automatically for newly created applications, and can be applied to existing applications via their NGINX CustomConfig page. (You can also customize your application's NGINX configurations in the same place!)
