Welcome to the Cloud 66 Changelog. Please take a quick look at the latest changes that went out this week!
Cloud 66 for Node
There’s been a steady stream of requests from both existing customers and prospects enquiring around the possibility of a Node-specific solution at Cloud 66. And now, we’re thrilled to be announcing that Cloud 66 for Node is now available.
It offers an all-in-one build and orchestration tool to help you deploy software faster and more reliably, with a single click.

Disk Space Alert
Also, this week we've released a new feature called, Disk Space Alert. This tool notifies you when your server disk is running out of space. By default, we have set up an 80% threshold, and this is when you will receive an alert. You can set it up manually e.g. 60% or 85%.
Find out more about Disk Space Alerts on our blog post
During the past days, you might have heard about a Linux Kernel Vulnerability called DirtyCow. Although currently this vulnerability is only exploitable via direct access to the filesystem, it is recommended that all affected systems be galvanized against this exploit by updating to a patched kernel.
All servers managed by Cloud 66 are being monitored for DirtyCow and if found vulnerable you will see it reflected on your StackScore. You can then choose to apply a fix automatically via Cloud 66 Web UI.
You can read more about this on our blog.
We've released a new update to Habitus - v0.4.7. This version supports the latest Docker Engine (1.12.2) and includes some minor bug fixes. Habitus v0.4.7 is available on BuildGrid.

Docker v1.12.2 is now available at Cloud 66. This is a patch release to v.1.12.1 and solves some bugs that come out with the previous version.
We've also updated support for Weave v.1.7.2, which includes a number of bug fixes and minor improvements.
