RIPE Atlas has been in operation for more than five years now, and its network of probes and users has grown tremendously in that time. We’ve also added anchors, sponsors and ambassadors to the system, developed a huge array of new tools, visualisations and features, and RIPE Atlas data is now being used by network operators, engineers and researchers around the world. As a result, we thought it was time to revamp the RIPE Atlas website, which hadn’t changed much over the past five years despite all the changes to RIPE Atlas itself. Get an overview of some of the biggest changes and new features - then check out the new site, which launches today!

I joined the RIPE NCC in 2012 as a Communications Writer. I write documentation, website content and RIPE Labs articles about the RIPE NCC's measurement tools, such as RIPE Atlas and RIPEstat.

A little while ago, we asked what you thought about the idea of conducting WiFi measurements in RIPE Atlas. After some consideration and community feedback, we now want to propose a way to implement this feature in RIPE Atlas and clarify exactly how these measurements will benefit the RIPE Atlas community.
The concept of virtual probes is one that RIPE Atlas users have asked about for quite some time. Although we don't plan to make virtual probes available in 2016, we do plan to investigate this idea and develop some prototypes.
RIPE Atlas users have been asking us for some time to support a command-line interface (CLI), and we're pleased to announce that it's now available.
A few weeks ago we gave you a heads up about a new visualisation tool in RIPE Atlas called DomainMON, and we're pleased to announce that this is now available for all RIPE Atlas users with available credits.
