New Ruby versions released

 

Update

  

For our Rails/Rack customers, the latest Ruby release v3.1.0 is now available. This is brand new, and Gems are still catching up, so please ensure your application works locally with this before upgrading. For more information, see the official release notes.

Failover Groups via API

 

Update

  

You can now list, add, configure and remove Failover Groups via the API and the Cloud 66 Toolbelt (cx). This was a much requested feature, so we are happy have this out and available now!

Notifications Management via API

 

Update

  

We have extended our API and the Cloud 66 Toolbelt (cx) to support downloading and updating application notifications. You can download your notifications and store them as a yaml file (which you can maintain locally). You can then apply this yaml file to an application or a set of applications in an Application Group.

Elasticsearch Version Update (CVE-2021-44228)

 

Update

  

A few days ago a pretty serious vulnerability was discovered in the core Log4j logging library. We can confirm that Cloud 66 is not affected by this vulnerability (either in our own infrastructure, or in the tooling we use on our customers servers)

Customers who are running versions of Elasticsearch less that v6.x.x are considered vulnerable, and should look to upgrade their Elasticsearch clusters as soon as they are able to the latest patched version v7.16.1 (released today to address this vulnerability). We recommend all customers upgrade to the latest version of Elasticsearch if possible.

To upgrade your Elasticsearch cluster, please follow our help guidelines for updating Elasticsearch.

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 customers, 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!
