May 2018 release notes

With the out-of-cycle security update and the planned hosting upgrades (details below), we did not have a standard monthly release for May.


Now that your sites collectively serve millions of visitors per month, we are pleased to announce that we are scaling up our infrastructure and will be transitioning to a powerful new hosting platform that is 2-3x faster for administrators and lightning-fast for end-users worldwide.


The new container-based hosting model will leverage Amazon Web Services, allowing for complete decentralization and redundancy. It is part of an infrastructure modernization and overhaul that has been over a year in the making. The first batch of sites is scheduled for migration mid-May.


Our team may be contacting you to make changes to your DNS records in preparation for the migration in the coming months.
