The new metrics agent is fully released into production. The new agent makes it easier for users to contribute custom metrics, adds an additional load average plot, supports Fedora 27, allows users to opt out of process name collection, and will be the default agent used by our managed databases and Kubernetes products.
All agent installations on or after this date will receive the new agent by default. On 8 July, 2019, the legacy metrics agent will be deprecated, meaning users will no longer be able to view metrics from Droplets running the legacy agent. You can upgrade to the new agent at any time.
In order to help customers track their credits, beginning in April we will send invoice emails when customers use any resources during a billing period, regardless of an account’s outstanding balance. Previously, invoices were sent only when the outstanding balance exceeded the threshold for automatic payments.

Spaces users no longer need to cancel their Spaces subscription via the Spaces UI when they want to stop using Spaces. Now, any time a Spaces user destroys their last Space, their pro-rated $5/month billing (if not in the free trial period) stops. Overage charges still apply if they were incurred prior to deletion of the last Space.
