Linode has added a new field in the “Contact Info” form under “Accounts”. This may mean some changes. A new VAT Number field has been found on the contact info/billing form in the Linode Manager. This hints that Linode may soon be charging customers VAT. The help text next to the field says, “EU VAT Registration Number, if applicable.”, hinting that this may only apply to European Union (EU) customers.
In May 2016 Linode announced that they started working on a new Linode Manager. About 14 months later, they have opened up the new manager as a public beta at cloud.linode.com. Here’s a few thoughts and screenshots. note: The following review is based off of Linode Manager v0.12.7 which Linode considers “early-access”. It is not complete and can change by the time they are ready to release it. This review isn’t an in-depth one as there’s no point, the new Linode Manager is still changing.
Similar to Ubuntu, the Fedora Project releases approximately every 6 months. There aren’t any major server changes in this release. Here’s some of what shipped: BIND v9.11 DNF v2.5 GCC v7 Go v1.8 OpenSSL 1.1.0 PHP v7.1 Python v3.6 Ruby v2.4 Some more details including coverage for the WorkStation (desktop) release can be found at Fedora Magazine.
