Certificate Status for Custom Domains
new
You can now see the status of your custom domain SSL certificates once DNS verification is complete.
This is what it looks like after DNS has been verified and the certificate is pending issuance:

Change in behavior for Github/Gitlab PR Preview updates
new
We've heard your concerns regarding automated comment spam on PR Previews, and we've decided to change the default behavior for creating GitHub/GitLab comments when a PR Preview server is updated.
By default, Render won't create any new comments after the initial comment linking to the PR preview in your Render Dashboard. You can always switch to the previous default behavior by updating the value here under
Account Settings
in the dashboard.

Roll back to a previous deploy
new
Previous deploys for web services, private services, and background workers can now be rolled back to from the dashboard, without needing to rebuild your service. See https://render.com/docs/rollbacks for more detail.
All native environments now include rsync
new
rsync
is now included in all build and runtime environments and can be used without needing a custom Dockerfile.

Coming Soon
We've started work on improving the services list and detail views so it's easier and faster to find the info you need. Questions or comments? Feel free to reach out in chat or at support@render.com.
Docker Build Improvements
new
Docker apps on Render are now built with BuildKit, Docker's new build engine which brings performance and storage improvements with concurrent, cache-efficient builds.
We've also added details of Render's Docker support at https://render.com/docs/docker.
Faster builds
new
We've moved all build infrastructure to faster CPUs, and you should see a noticeable improvement in build times. For example, building render.com on Render took ~300s before the move, and now takes ~190s. A 30% improvement!
LogDNA and Scout APM Addons generally available
new
All Render users now have access to the Addons program, which currently features LogDNA and Scout APM. More addons on the way!
Specify Elixir and OTP Versions
new
You can now change the Elixir and OTP versions for your Elixir apps.
Improved Build Caching
improved
Build caches are no longer automatically cleared after a failure. This implies faster builds regardless of the outcome of your previous build.
You can still clear the build cache manually from the dashboard using the 'Clear Build Cache and Deploy' button.
