If you missed 2020, lucky you, to get you all caught up, here's our Previously On Fly segment. Caught up? Good.
And now here is the Fly ChangeLog, covering the end of December 2020 to January 2021.
6PN Networking and IPv6 WireGuard VPNs
Let your apps talk amongst themselves with 6PN networking. 6PN private networks build on top of Fly's WireGuard mesh networking and make it easy to look up other apps in your organizations, apps in regions, or globally view all instances of an app.
- There are no new commands to learn, just a small adjustment to your
fly.tomlfile to enable 6PN DNS resolution for your apps. Read more in the private networking section of the docs.
And if that wasn't enough, IPv6 Wireguard Peering lets you create VPN tunnels into your organization so you can safely work from inside the Fly infrastructure when developing or use it to securely bridge outside networks and applications into Fly.
- There's a new command for
wireguardlets you create, list, and remove tunnels. You can learn more in the private network VPN section of the docs.
We've switched our default scaling model to a more predictable model, scaling by the count of instances, with autoscaling getting its own command.
autoscalecontrols autoscaling and
scalecontrols count-scaling. Read more about the changes in our updated scaling and autoscaling section in the docs.
It's not all new commands and features. We've been tuning up the Fly infrastructure too. We recently switched to
containerd for pulling your images in, removing the entire
building roofs stage, and letting us reuse more layers. The result is shorter subsequent boot times for larger images and a faster Fly for all.
Another backend change means that events in an app's lifecycle—including being configured, starting up, and shutting down—are now being logged in the app's own logs. This change means more information in logs about what's happening with an app.
And volumes, the persistent storage option on Fly, are now being lazily initialized and encrypted (by default) so that configuring them is faster.
This is the Fly ChangeLog, where we list all significant changes to the Fly platform, tooling, and websites. You can also use the RSS feed of just changelog posts available on fly.io/changelog.xml or consult our dedicated ChangeLog page with all the recent updates.
