It’s been another productive month for the team here at Tailscale, and we are brimming with community contributions including a getting started video tutorial from David Burgess and a new guide by Justin Rhee on setting up a Tailscale VPN on Kubernetes. Let’s jump in:

New Pricing

Monday we announced a new pricing model for Tailscale that makes it less expensive for everyone, and easier to scale. As always, non-profits and open-source projects receive a 50% discount.

Spin up more devices or subnet routers, try out ACL rules—we want you to experiment and update your payment settings after the fact. We’re building the most inclusive pricing model possible, and we’ll be able to do that with your feedback.

GitHub Authentication

Users can now sign up for Tailscale using their GitHub account. We do not (yet) support creating your own teams, but if you are part of an existing GitHub organization you’ll get the option to join that org when you sign up.

Tailscale v1.10

Tailscale v1.10 is primarily a bugfix and stabilization release. It also lays the groundwork for an upcoming feature to support HTTPS certificates that we’re hoping to release in the coming weeks. For all platforms tailscale ping --until-direct (the default) now exits with a non-zero exit code if no direct connection was established.

On macOS we’ve added a UI to allow access to the local LAN while using an exit node. We’ve also added support for the new macOS 12 and iOS 15 betas announced at WWDC. For Android, macOS, and iOS we have fixed use of Tailscale IP addresses as DNS servers.
