Last week, we announced Node.js support as part of our Labs program. At the beginning of this month, we also released early access to Ruby 1.9.3, and our data team is doing great work expanding our stack.
Previously, we asked you to sign up through various pages, and you would have needed to wait for us to grant your access. Today, we're ready to give you easier control of these features. From the Early Access Features page, you'll be able to manage these new features on your own. When you visit your account settings, you will see a button at the bottom of the page.
Now, using Engine Yard Labs and Alpha features will be as easy as turning on a switch!
For our current features in early access, you can still use our sign up pages to have them enabled for you if you choose, but we think this will make it much easier for you to try out. As always, feel free to let us know what you think at our feedback Google Group!
