Native Apple M1 Builds
We’re finally providing flyctl binaries for Apple M1 devices. Huzzah!
This was a bit of an upgrade, including go 1.16 and several critical dependencies, such as Docker. The amd64 builds are stable in production, but our testing pool for M1 is smaller – only @Jerome He said it’s been stable, but let us know if you have any issues, particularly with installation or deploys.
New VM commands
We’ve added 3 new commands to help you manage individual VMs.
# Request for a VM to be asynchronously restarted. flyctl vm restart # Request for a VM to be asynchronously stopped. flyctl vm stop # Show a VM's current status including logs, checks, and events. flyctl vm status
We’ve been using the heck out of these while testing failover and upgrades for our upcoming postgres apps. Now you can play chaos monkey too!
