Introducing Gitpod Dedicated
Gitpod Dedicated is our new enterprise cloud product - a secure installation of Gitpod managed by us for you. Gitpod exists to remove friction from the developer experience, and the best way to do that is with a managed product in the cloud. We no longer actively support self hosting Gitpod.

Prebuild Workspace Class
Prebuilds do a lot of work downloading dependencies, building projects, and getting everything ready so you are Always ready to code. Prebuilds often need more resources and power than the average workspace. Now you can configure different workspace classes for your project prebuilds.

Start new workspace with more options
Now you can start a new workspace with more options. You can choose the IDE, the workspace class, and any context url. 🎉

After countless improvements during the last months, our systems’ reliability show significant improvements according to both our internal metrics and direct customer feedback. 😎
