Latest Updates

  • Starting on 1 March 2023, Spaces will automatically delete any incomplete Multipart Uploads older than 90 days, to prevent them from being billed and to free up storage.

6 January 2023

  • Released v1.92.0 of doctl, the official DigitalOcean CLI. This release updates the doctl auth init prompt and deprecates the --algorithm flag for load balancer sub-commands.

5 January 2023

  • The Fedora 35 distribution has reached end of life and is deprecated as of 6 January 2023:

    The image will be removed from the control panel starting on 6 January 2023 but will remain accessible for Droplet creation via the API for 30 days after the initial deprecation. If you need to use Fedora 35 after the image has been fully deprecated, you can create Droplets from a snapshot of a Droplet with that version or from a custom image.
