  • 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.

    Example Response:

  • Expanded Droplet View allows customers using the Dashboard to click on a Droplet and quickly view additional information about the Droplet without having to go to the Droplet Page. It also updates the list of Droplets to display at a glance whether Backups are on/off and if a Floating IP is attached.
