Important Plugin Update And New A Server Region

Two quick things:

#1 – Important Plugin Update

I’m not quite ready to reveal the details quite yet, but I have my eyes on the 1.0 version release of OctoEverywhere. As a part of that, I have been working on a massive re-write of the plugin to service protocol. The new protocol takes all of the learnings from the current protocol but makes everything even better. I plan to write a longer blog post about what’s new, how much better it is, and the challenges I faced working on it. But for now, this is the important message:

Please update your OctoEverywhere OctoPrint plugin within two months of this post or you will get degraded performance.

Stand by for future radio transmission regarding the OctoEverywhere 1.0 release celebration. 😉

#2 – A New Server Region Live! 🎉

I’m excited to announce that I just brought a new data center online… London!

This brings our total worldwide data center regions to five: two European, two United States, and one Asia-Pacific. What this means for our community is the service will be running closer to more of you – which provides a faster and more robust experience. From rough testing in Europe, I found about ~40% of users saw a 20-30% improvement in page load times.

This and future data center expansions are made possible by the support of the community. OctoEverywhere is 100% funded by supporters. Your support is what drives updates, more data centers, and features. Thanks to each and every one of you who support the project!
