A lot of exciting stuff has happened since the last update, mostly on the infrastructure side of things relating to the stability and monitoring of the platform.

Internal changes:

  1. New method for creating crash recovery backups on the Digital Ocean nodes using S3
  2. Automatic complete restoration of production nodes from backup
  3. All Magento Start and Grow Hypernodes have been moved to Digital Ocean

Other updates:

  1. Updated composer to the latest version
  2. New Hypernodes install Magento
  3. Shorter migration time due to lower DNS TTL
  4. No more LANG_* forwarding so that NGINX restart doesn’t inherit a non-English locale
