Latest Updates

Upcoming Changes

  • FreeBSD 12.1 has reached its end of life. Per our image deprecation policy, you can now only deploy the FreeBSD UFS and ZFS image via the API. We will remove the images from the platform on 11 March 2021.

6 May 2021

  • Released v1.60.0 of doctl, the official DigitalOcean CLI. This release introduces an auth remove sub-command to simplify removing an auth context when managing multiple accounts. The databases user reset sub-command now supports resetting the user password for all database engine types.

5 May 2021

  • We have updated the Floating IP API responses to better align with our newer API models. The droplet and region fields now use the same response models used in the /v2/droplets and /v2/regions endpoints. Specifically:

    • The private_networking feature is now displayed under the features field under droplet instead of the features field under region.
    • The vpc_uuid field now populates with the correct values.
    • The Droplet’s type displays base when the Droplet uses a base image (i.e. Ubuntu, CentOS).
    • The Droplet’s networks field now includes private and floating IP addresses, if applicable.
