Compose Notes: Hello to and updates for MongoDB and etcd



Right now we're moving Compose over to the domain. We've been planning on doing this for a while so the switchover should be as close as transparent as is possible. Why are we doing this? Well, we have some big features coming which will be really useful for everyone and part of putting them into place is getting our domain names all in sync with each other - we can't say any more yet, but it will be good.

We're redirecting our addresses to and that should be in place and working for all services. We're monitoring the progress of this change and if you have any problems open a ticket from the Compose console or drop support a mail at

MongoDB update

We've put MongoDB 3.2.7 online for MongoDB users so existing users can upgrade their deployments. New MongoDB deployments will also be provisioned with 3.2.7 as their default database.

etcd Browser back

It took slightly longer than we hoped but the etcd data browser is now back online since a rather tricky to fix flaw took it offline. We apologize for the inconvenience. As with all Compose databases there was no impact on the underlying database because the data browser is part of the Compose console. Users of etcd can now get back to browsing, creating and editing the keys, directories and values of their etcd databases from the web without having to use command line tools. It's very convenient to use wherever you are.
