Tailscale May Newsletter
👉 We’d love to hear your thoughts on Tailscale. Filling out this feedback form helps us build a better product for you and other users.
May has been a big month for the Tailscale team. We launched session recording for Tailscale SSH in beta, allowing you to record the terminal output whenever someone on your tailnet initiates a Tailscale SSH connection. Along with SSH, we also announced that Custom OIDC is now available for all users, enabling seamless integration and authentication customization.
In case you missed it, we also hosted a live webinar, “Bring Tailscale to Work: Introduction to Tailscale Enterprise,” which is available to watch on-demand here. Avery Pennarun, Tailscale CEO, dove into the features of Tailscale Enterprise, showcasing how advanced functionalities like ACLs, SCIM, and Tailnet lock can empower companies to achieve compliance and security objectives while maintaining optimal productivity.
We’ve got a bunch of cool community contributions and new Tailscale features to share this month. Let’s jump in:
