RIPE Atlas was used to perform IPv6 reachability testing before and during the World IPv6 Launch. One success story and the usage statistics lead us to the conclusion that this feature needs to remain available even after the "launch" is over.
RIPEstat has a new DNS widget for World IPv6 Launch. The widget can be included in any website where you'd like viewers to be able to perform IPv6 (and IPv4) DNS lookups or view your site's DNS details.
RIPE Atlas is releasing a new service for Local Internet Registries (LIRs): if you are a member of the RIPE NCC, you can test the reachability of your IPv6 website from all IPv6-capable RIPE Atlas probes (currently more than 600).
The new Address Space Hierarchy widget allows you to see how address space is used. It shows how a particular prefix fits within a less specific block, and the more specific prefixes which fit within it. In this article we look at the widget in more depth.
The new RIPEstat Object Browser widget provides an interactive, visual overview of the relationship between objects in the RIPE database. This article describes the features of the widget.
The RIPEstat "birds of a feather" (BoF) session during RIPE 64 in Ljubljana drew a number of people interested in RIPEstat development. To encourage feedback, we announced a survey with the chance to win a RIPEstat t-shirt. New widgets (Address Space Hierarchy and Object Browser) were announced, …
Behind this cryptic title is the announcement of awarding credits for RIPE Atlas User-Defined Measurements (UDM) to RIPE NCC members: Local Internet Registries (LIRs). Limited test program will start at RIPE64 meeting in Ljubljana, 16-20 April.

This article describes how RIPE Atlas probes and anchors maintain their clocks, and how accurate these clocks are. We also plan to make the NTP measurements we describe here available as an additional measurement type for RIPE Atlas users.
Since 2003, the RIPE NCC’s DNS Monitoring Service (DNSMON), has been providing a comprehensive, objective, and up-to-date overview on the quality of the service offered by TLD and other DNS operators.
