CloudJiffy 8.6-1 Release Notes

In this document, you will find all of the new features, enhancements and visible changes included to the CloudJiffy 8.6-1 release.


Ubuntu 23 Support:

The platform introduces support for the latest version of one of the most popular Linux distributions – Ubuntu 23.04 (Lunar Lobster). The release introduces a lot of software updates, security improvements, and bug fixes for those who need the most up-to-date patches. However, if you prefer Long Term Support, it is recommended to stick with Ubuntu 22.04 LTS.

The Ubuntu 23.04 distribution support is automatically available through the appropriate base operating system template (for custom Docker containers).

Also, the Ubuntu 22.10 template was deprecated due to the version’s official end of life.

Debian 12 Support:

The platform implements support for the Debian 12 “bookworm” OS templates on all the PaaS installations. It is the latest LTS (Long Term Support) version with an estimated support period of at least five years. The new release is focused on performance, stability, and ease of use. It provides a massive update of the default packages, creates a separate package archive for non-free firmware, extends architectures and kernel support, and introduces many other improvements, optimizations, and security fixes. For detailed information, refer to the official Debian 12 release notes.

Also, Debian 12 was added as an out-of-box Elastic VPS stack in the platform dashboard.

Excluding Nodes from DNS during Sequential Actions:

CloudJiffy provides an easy-to-use horizontal scaling functionality for the containers, i.e. offering a quick high-availability option for users. Combined with the sequential configuration option that allows performing actions on nodes successively (so that at least one node remains operable), even intrusive operations like restart and redeploy can be performed without disrupting end-user experience.

However, even with the sequential option enabled, some connections can be lost in case of high traffic. In order to ensure application availability for all incoming requests, an additional suboption to “Temporarily remove node(s) from DNS” was implemented. If enabled, a node will be excluded from the DNS tables (internal and external) during the intrusive operation.

This new option is available during the following operations:

  • nodes restart on the multi-node layer
  • nodes redeploy on the multi-node layer


Firewall ICMP Restriction:

The Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) is used for reporting errors and performing network diagnostics. However, some ICMP request types can be considered a minor security vulnerability that allows attackers to gain information on the remote host.

In this release, CloudJiffy added rules to the default firewall configurations that block ICMP Timestamp request messages. Such an adjustment resolves a vulnerability that can potentially be exploited to probe the network to find live hosts, gather time/date information on the target host, or generate shared traffic to trick the intrusion detection system.

Environment-Associated Scripts:

In this release, functionality to create a more firm association between the environment and deployed add-ons was implemented. The implementation creates the necessary persistence to support such cases as:

  • all collaboration members can view and manage add-ons of the shared environment
  • add-ons’ management is available to the new owner after environment transferring

The following add-ons are already updated to benefit from this association functionality: Git-Push-Deploy, Start/Stop Scheduler, and Let’s Encrypt add-ons. However, please note that the change affects the new installations only.

Deactivated Account Improvements:

The platform automatically deactivates an account after the trial period expires or if it runs out of funds. In deactivated status, all the environments are forcibly stopped till the balance is replenished to a positive value.

Starting with the current release, the ability to manually delete environments on the deactivated account was added. It allows cleaning up an account before re-activation and removing environments immediately (no need to wait for automatic removal upon account destruction).

Also, the account activations process was improved as well. Now, it triggers immediately after refilling the balance (to a positive value) and automatically starts all the stopped environments.

API Changes:

Below, you can find a list of all changes to the public API in this version (compared to the preceding 8.3 ones):

  • Extended response of the GetSSLCerts method to provide information on SSL type. The new sslType parameter has two values:
    • CUSTOM – for any certificates added via the dashboard or AddSslCert API call
    • LETSENCRYPT – for certificates issued for resellers or regions

The public API documentation review has been completed. All the services, methods, and parameters were provided with comprehensive descriptions to help new and existing users start using the platform’s API

Collaboration Scripts Permissions:

The account collaboration feature provides a flexible and efficient way for multiple accounts to work on the same project. Depending on the shared permissions, the collaboration members can perform various actions on the primary account, including the execution of custom scripts. In order to ensure security, such custom scripts (including from the certified add-ons, like “Env Start/Stop Scheduler”) will be executed under the session of the member who triggered the action and not the account owner. As a result, the scripts installed by the collaboration member will stop working once the corresponding user loses the required permissions (due to changes to the shared roles and policies).

Deprecating Ubuntu 16.04:

CloudJiffy support for the Ubuntu 16.04 base OS image was terminated in the current 8.6 release. The platform restricts the creation of new containers based on Ubuntu 16. All the already existing containers remain fully operable. However, we strongly recommend updating such instances to the later LTS release versions (Ubuntu 18.04 / 20.04 / 22.04) via built-in redeploy functionality.

Additionally, the Ubuntu 16.04 VPS stack was deprecated and will not be available anymore
