We are dedicated to delivering high quality updates
that enhance your experience with Cleavr.
Cleavr release notes have moved to headwayapp.co/cleavr-io-updates.
12 November 2020
NuxtJS apps are getting first-class treatment with Cleavr! NuxtJS SSR and static app types can be selected when adding new sites, prompting Cleavr to install necessary dependencies as well as configure the deployment according to the selected type. This is just the first step in our support of NuxtJS with more to come. 🤩
10 November 2020
We've reduced the time and steps involved to launch new apps. Flash Deployments front-loads all of the settings in one simple page. Just fill it out and then click Let's Deploy! Cleavr will then provision a new server, install dependencies, make necessary configurations, and then deploy your app. Easy! 👍
👆 Test out Flash Deployments and launch an Adonis 5 task list app.
25 October 2020
You can now update a free Cleavr testing domain to use your own custom domain. Free Cleavr domains are great for testing deployments without the need to setup your own domain and modify DNS records. And, sometimes, you may just want to make the switch to update your app to use your own domain without having to start over from scratch. We've made it easier to make the switch by simply allowing you to rename the domain.
18 October 2020
Have you ever wished you could smoke test updates in production, but without actually having them visible to everyone? Now you can with Canary! Canary places a hold on deployments and provides you with a secret URL to check that everything is working as expected in production prior to making it available for everyone. Or, if you run across issues, you can cancel your deployment and fix before trying again. 💪🏽
Canary also provides health stats and lets you know if your site is accessible from different regions around the world and what the latency times from those locations are. ⚡️
3 October 2020
You can now enable database monitoring and view various real-time activities; such, as connections, queries, query types, and bandwidth.
29 September 2020
Cleaver.cloud is now simply cleavr.io. We sliced down our domain by removing an 'e' (the 2nd one 😉) and changing up the domain from '.cloud' to '.io'.
We also brought back SSL certificates for our free test domains! We had to remove SSL certs for the test domains a while back as the feature was more popular than we anticipated and depleted our SSL cert bucket. We think we got that all covered now and are opening SSL back up!
25 September 2020
Filesystems and databases can now automatically be backed up to an SFTP server, AWS S3, DigitalOcean Spaces, or to a local folder on the server. More options to come! Also new is the notification provider section so that you can be notified when backups complete successfully or when they fail.
13 September 2020
The server list page now displays spark charts for CPU, RAM, and NGINX usage. You can also manage monitoring from the services section. Lastly, we pushed a fix to NGINX not properly restarting after you reboot a server.
10 September 2020
Deployment rollbacks let you rollback your web app to an earlier deployment. Server monitoring for AWS is now available. We've made several updates for NodeJS and AdonisJS apps such as refining entry points and enabling cluster mode so that your NodeJS apps can take advantage of multiple-core processing!
2 September 2020
Site isolation, in conjunction with server users, drastically improves security for sites accessible on servers. This is a must if you have multiple clients and you want to give them some server access without jeopardizing sites for other clients hosted on the same server. We've also made quite a few behind-the-scenes enhancements to deployments and squashed a good amount of bugs. And... (best for last?) PostgreSQL support! 🔥🔥🔥
24 August 2020
Supercharge the performance of your website with NGINX cache. Adonis, WordPress, Alpas, and Laravel sites get a shot of adrenaline with NGINX caching enabled. We also added domain level authentication so that you can show your apps to only those you give explicit permission to. 🔐
19 August 2020
15 August 2020
Log reports let you see your app logs in a visually beautiful report. Only Laravel apps will have log reports with this release; other app types soon to follow! In addition, we've made quite a few small tweaks to make the experience just that much more smooooth. 🥃
11 August 2020
New preferences let you slim down the left-rail menu to add more screen real-estate and select which sites you care about most when creating new sites. Also, Cleavr now offers the ability to automagically create databases and database user / password and sync up the connections with your webapp in the background to save you some steps. Lastly, you can now log into Cleavr with your Google or GitHub account!
7 August 2020
Deployment history now displays duration deltas between latest and previous deployments so you can keep tabs on deployment performance. We also added a nice, smooth transition to the deployment logs, added the ability to unarchive servers, and some other delights. Plus, an easter egg that we'll talk more about soon. 🐰🥚
5 August 2020
Our goal is to make creating sites and deploying apps easy. So, if you forget to install dependencies for your site, we'll install them for you. It just works.
3 August 2020
Free testing domains lets you set up a site and deploy sooner so you can validate configurations and get your site ready for the real world. Also new to Cleavr, check your services current health by clicking on the heart beat button in the services section. 💗
31 July 2020
Two new Version Control (VC) providers have been added. GitLab and Bitbucket now join GitHub on the list of VC providers that you can use with Cleavr when deploying your web applications. 🚀
27 July 2020
Server monitoring can now be set up with a single click so that you can visualize the health of your servers. This is just the beginning for server monitoring as we'll make some cool enhancements in the future; such as, alerts and notifications. We've also added sites to the server info dropdown. 😎
24 July 2020
We've made several improvements to UX. Webapp info dropdowns are now available in the Webapp section and we've made some additional tweaks to environment variables, including adding a default env file for Alpas and Laravel to cover you if you did not add one.
19 July 2020
You can now simply fetch existing .env variables, update, and sync. You can also restart pertinent services as well; such as, clear and build config cache, reload php, and restart queue when updating Laravel .env files, as an example. 🔥
16 July 2020
We've added an SSH Key Bank under your account section so that you can create a bank of common SSH keys so that you can quickly apply keys to servers. Also, you can now more easily switch between dark mode and light mode under your profile section.
14 July 2020
We made it a ton easier to associate dns records to your provisioned servers as well as made it super easy to associate sites to created dns records. Also, we went on a bug squashin' spree! 🐛🥾
6 July 2020
You can now choose to add SSL certificates post site creation as well as add custom certificates. Cleavr, by default, uses Let's Encrypt, but now you can bring your own SSL cert.
4 July 2020
Existing domains in Cloudflare and DigitalOcean can now be imported into Cleavr. When you add a new domain in Cleavr's DNS section, Cleavr will check to see if the domain already exists on the provider side, and if so, will sync up the DNS records!
2 July 2020
We unblocked access to beta and have opened it up to everyone! Beta is still free for a limited time. We also integrated with Cloudflare so that you can manage DNS records from within Cleavr and extended that ability to DigitalOcean as well. No more leaving Cleavr to make simple DNS record updates! 💪🏽
19 June 2020
Check out our brand new, official forum at forum.cleavr.io! We hope to build a community of individuals looking to maximize their usage of Cleavr, share with others what they are working on, seek assistance, and to meet new friends. 🙌
13 June 2020
We've expanded on the previous release, which introduced services, and added the ability to stop and start services and to configure PHP settings. We are also pleased, especially our eyes, to introduce dark mode! If you have your device set to dark mode (and if your browser supports it) then you will automatically experience Cleavr with the lights turned off. We hope you enjoy the new experience. 😎
9 June 2020
Sometimes you forget to add everything you need to a server. The new services section lets you add services to your server post provisioning. This section will be expanded on in the future to let you stop and restart services. Also new, is real-time status updates when priviosing servers and adding sites. No more refreshing the page to see if a status changed!
31 May 2020
Have your own VPS hosted outside of our list of integrated providers? You can now bring your custom servers to Cleavr!
25 May 2020
Linode has been added to the family of available cloud providers in Cleavr. Cron jobs are also now ready to schedule and redirects are ready to configure as of this beta release. Lastly, we've made some improvements to the sidebar navigation to make it even more simple and more delightful while navigating. 😍
21 May 2020
A new server details tool tip available on the servers list and on the server name in the breadcrumbs is now available. Now, seeing what provider and stack your server has installed is a cinch. We've also released quite a few experience enhancements and bug extermination.
19 May 2020
AWS offers another cloud provider option and WordPress sites can now be installed on servers with a click of a button.
14 May 2020
The inclusion of Hetzner VPS, PHP 7.4 support, and improvements to the onboarding experience make up the majority of this release. AWS integration is still in progress.
12 May 2020
Numerous experience enhancements and the addition of Vultr make the majority of this beta release. Up next, we are working on AWS.
8 May 2020
PHP, Node.js, and static HTML site types can now be created. Up next, we are working on Vultr VPS integration.
