Invoices page: Improvements to detailed invoices make it easier to determine how much each resource costs.
Server create date: The server page shows when you deployed the server.
Credentials: We've improved how credentials are shown in the dashboard, and now show which SSH keys the server was deployed with. There's also a one-liner you can quickly copy to log in to your server.
Hostname edit: You can now edit the hostname of a server from the server details page and through the API.
User data templates
User data templates give you a quick start when creating your scripts. We‘ve added templates for common use cases, like updating packages and sending Slack notifications to check in a new or reinstalled device with your team.
Get started by going to Project Settings → User data → Create from template

SAML Single Sign-On now available
Teams can now use their identity provider to log into Latitude.sh with SAML Single Sign-On. All major identity providers are supported, including Okta, Active Directory, OneLogin, and Auth0, and can be configured by going to the Settings section of the Settings & Billing page.
There's an optional Directory Sync feature, allowing teams to automatically sync users form a directory provider, adding and removing users automatically based on changes happening in your IAM.
Contact Sales to learn more, and check out the documentation.
Run code on a server's first boot with User Data scripts
User data are small scripts that run on a server's first boot, letting you quickly customize a new server the first time it boots after its deployment.
With user data, you can easily change the root password, notify of a new deployment on Slack, install packages, and more with just a few lines of code.

Debian 11 is now available for all instant and spot instances across all locations.
Small features & improvements
We are continuing to ship features and improvements based on your feedback. Here are some recent changes.
Batch deploys: Create multiple servers in one go through the server create page. Check out the docs.
Private Networks beta: Go to the Layer 2 page in the dashboard to sign up for early access to one of our most requested features.
Filters: More filters have been added to the servers page, and you can now filter by region, hostname, and label, using operators like contains, is equal to, has prefix, and has suffix. Additionally, filters are now persisted in the URL, making sharing a specific view with your team easier.
Introducing the Command Menu. Use keyboard shortcuts to navigate without using your mouse. The Command Menu not only helps you navigate the dashboard, but you can also use it to search for servers and IP addresses.
Check out the documentation to see the list of shortcuts available.
Rocky Linux and Debian 10
Rocky Linux and Debian 10 are now available for all instant and spot instances across all locations.
Chicago 2 and Tokyo 2 have been promoted to Core
We have promoted the Chicago 2 and Tokyo 2 locations from Custom to Core. You can now add more resiliency to your workloads in the US and Japan regions without the need for a custom deployment.
Manage your bandwidth quota
We are excited to announce that now you can manage your quota directly from the dashboard and API. This feature gives lets you adjust the amount of bandwidth your project can consume before it starts incurring overages.
Manage your project bandwidth quota from the Usage page and have more control over your consumption.
Faster and more reliable power actions
We have made improvements to make power actions faster and more reliable. Now, requests respond three times faster, and sending power on, power off, and reboot requests immediately update your servers' state on the dashboard and API.

Easily add multiple team members
Adding team members is now easier with the new Add team members screen. Add up to five team members at once, each with its own role. Additionally, first and last names are no longer needed, only the email address.
Bandwidth Quota now available on the Usage page
The Usage page now shows your Bandwidth Quota for each region where you have servers, as well as the percentage consumed during the current billing cycle.
View Usage by current and previous billing cycle
You can now filter the bandwidth usage of servers and projects by the current and previous billing cycles, giving you the ability to see how your bandwidth consumption changes over time.
IPv6 is now enabled by default
As the internet gradually moves to IPv6, all new deployments and reinstalls now include an IPv6 address.
This means you no longer have to request an IPv6 address, and your servers will now include a /64 address by default.
Also, you will see the IPv6 address showing up on the device page and the API for currently deployed servers. To make the new IP work with your server, you can set it manually on the device or trigger a reinstall.
London is now available for instant deployments
We are incredibly excited to welcome London to latitude.sh's Edge Network. London is our first European region and one of our most anticipated and requested regions.
You can get a server in the region running in under 10 minutes starting today. We are starting with availability for the c2.small.x86 server, but have built enough spare capacity to support custom deployments too.

Flatcar and RedHat Enterprise Linux now available
Use Flatcar to deploy container workloads and RHEL for that stable OS enterprises love all in under 10 minutes. Both Operating Systems are available for deployment on all available servers through the dashboard and API.
