  • Fixed issue with 2FA QR code generation for authenticator applications. Users with usernames over 26 characters were unable to generate a QR code. We now render up to 65 characters of a user’s entire email address and truncate if it is longer. This prevents errors for users with long email addresses, and renders more information in authenticator applications to help users with multiple accounts have more context.

  • Launched the new Dashboard experience to the control panel. The Dashboard replaces the Droplets page as the new default home page of the control panel. It provides at-a-glance visibility into active resources, like Droplets, Spaces, load balancers, floating IPs, and domains, month-to-date current billing usage, shortcuts to team management, and other common tasks without having to navigate to different and often hard-to-find sections of the control panel.
