Announcing Ubuntu 22.04 SupportGeneral
It has been a while in the building and testing (and dependency pruning), but we are very pleased to announce that Ubuntu 22.04 (Jammy) is now supported across all Cloud 66 products. Some of our customers have been waiting for this for a while, and we thank them for their patience!
From this point onward, brand new applications will have Ubuntu 22.04 installed. One caveat is that Rails/Rack users must be on at least v3.1.0 of Ruby to use Ubuntu 22.04 due to core OpenSSL version updates.
Don't forget, you can control your target Ubuntu version through your manifest. For more on this, check out our blog post!
Ruby 3.2 Support ReleasedRails
For our Rails/Rack customers, the latest Ruby release v3.2.0 is now available. This is brand new, and Gems are still catching up, so please ensure your application works locally with this before upgrading.
Ruby 3.2 comes with "Production-ready" YJIT support. You can experimentally enable this in your application by adding the Environment Variable

SSH Key Flow ChangesGeneral
Today we are releasing a change in the way we distribute SSH keys to your servers. Until now, accessing servers via SSH meant downloading a private SSH key from you Cloud 66 dashboard and using it to access the servers (this was the same in CX Toolbelt). With today's release we are reversing this flow: you can now add your public SSH key to your Cloud 66 account and it will be added to any server you have access to. When you need SSH access to the server, you can use your own private SSH key.
We will keep both methods operational until mid March 2023. From mid March 2023, the old method of SSH key access will be deprecated. You can read more about this change in our blog.
