Unassigned floating IP charges will now appear on invoices. The first charge will appear on July 2020 invoices for all floating IPs that were not assigned to Droplets during the month of June.
We have released a Droplet metadata endpoint which returns whether or not a Droplet is scheduled for a live migration. The impact of live migrations on Droplets is minimal, so users now only receive direct notifications for migrations that require us to power down a Droplet, which (except in emergencies) we send 7 days in advance.
Memory-Optimized Droplets are now available for the BLR1 datacenter region.
On 1 August 2020, Ubuntu 19.10 will reach its end of life and will not receive further updates. Per our image deprecation policy, you can only deploy the Ubuntu 19.10 Linux image via the API starting on 1 August 2020. We will remove the Ubuntu 19.10 image from the platform on 1 September 2020.
