Bluemix Updates: Cinco de Mayo!

It’s been a couple months since my last Bluemix Updates blog. But, the team has kept working, and on the eve of Cinco de Mayo I thought it was time to share some great new features and functions that have recently gone live. These include:

  • Unveiling of a new and improved Pricing page.
  • Introduction of a Labs section in the Bluemix Catalog.
  • Overhauled Bluemix Docs, including the ability to leave inline feedback.
  • Improvements to SSL certificate support for custom domains.
  • Ability to communicate with live IBM representatives via text chat and video chat.
  • Addition of Korean to the list of translations for the Bluemix UI and the Bluemix Docs.
  • Enhancements to catalog services (e.g., API Management and IBM Insights for Twitter) and boilerplates (e.g., Node-RED).
  • Updates to IBM Eclipse Tools for Bluemix.
  • Miscellaneous usability improvements and fixed defects.
