Below you can see the 5 most recent changes to Uberspace 7. For older changes, please refer to the Changelog Archive.
Sometimes the version shown on your host may be higher than the newest version here. In this case we might have applied additional fixes shortly after a release or did internal changes without user impact. We deem updates like these hotfixes and they are not necessarily included in this changelog.
[7.15.1] - 2023-04-05¶
Since yesterday a little relase slipped through our fingers onto the servers, beside the final removement of PHP7.4 there are some minor additions to your Asteroids.
Because our main focus now lies on the development of the next Uberspace generation, our release cycle in U7 could evolve to a more frequent but smaller feature set. We’ll see how it all comes together in the coming period.
PHP 7.4 removal¶
We have now removed the outdated PHP 7.4 version from our servers. All users who reverted to version 8.0 after the deprecation period have now been permanently migrated.
The MariaDB updates we implemented within the last weeks on all hosts are finished now and all instances were updated to version 10.6.

records when adding a new domain, or via the new

for some additional information.

[7.14.1] - 2022-11-29¶
In preparation for the pending deprecation of PHP
7.4(probably in the next Uberspace release, scheduled for December), we set the PHP version for everyone running
8.0. Until we roll out the deprecation you can still move back manually, (i.e. to fix things and prepare for the version update).
