- You can now set separate RU and storage limits for your clusters, or set a spend limit that will be divided between resources automatically.
- You can now set unlimited resources for a cluster so your workload is never restricted.

- If your organization is enrolled in the new fine-grained authorization model described under Security Updates, you can assign the new roles to both users and service accounts using the Cloud API or Terraform provider in addition to the Console.
CockroachDB Cloud is transitioning to a new authorization model that offers fine-grained access-control (FGAC), meaning that users can be given access to exactly the actions and resources required to perform their tasks. Changes include cluster-level roles and consistent access management across users and service accounts. This feature is in limited access, and you can enroll your organization by contacting your account team. For more information, see Managing Access (Authorization) in CockroachDB Cloud.
You can now use client certificates to authenticate to CockroachDB Dedicated clusters. First, a cluster administrator needs to upload a CA certificate for the cluster using the Cloud API or Terraform provider. After that, individual users can be assigned client certificates signed by the uploaded CA certificate, which they can then use to connect to the cluster. This feature is in limited access, and you can enroll your organization by contacting your account team.
- The Connect to your cluster dialog and Databases page in the Console now respond significantly faster for clusters with over 100 databases.

- New CockroachCloud clusters will now run CockroachDB v20.2.8.
- CockroachCloud Free clusters are now available in four additional regions:
- New users can now sign up for CockroachCloud with Github Authorization. Logging in with GitHub allows users to enforce GitHub's two-factor authentication (2FA) on their CockroachCloud account. Current users can switch their login method between email and GitHub.
- When logging in fails due to user input, the error message now includes login method as a potential reason for failure.
- Previously, selecting a new cloud provider while creating a cluster would reset the Region and Hardware per node options to default. Now, equivalent region and hardware options are preselected, and the number of nodes per region is preserved when a new cloud provider is selected.

- Created a new Status Page that displays the current service status and incident communication of the CockroachDB Cloud Console, AWS services, and GCP services.

- Fixed a bug where an error occurred when displaying the Connect modal for an old GCP cluster that does not have the custom
crdbnetwork. These clusters do not support VPC peering, but the lack of the
crdbnetwork was causing the listing of VPC peerings to fail even though no such peerings exist.
