A huge update to hosted dev environments.

As a reminder, hosted dev environments can be used to create a stack, currently based on LAMP or Node.js. They can be connected to a Github or Bitbucket repository, enabling you to clone your project and work on it in ShiftEdit.

We previously employed a docker based solution which has been replaced with an Amazon Web Services (AWS) based solution.

Now when you create a hosted environment you will be asked to enter an AWS key id and secret key.

ShiftEdit will then launch an ec2 instance which will include your chosen stack and repository.

You will find a couple of new options available from the site menu: "SSH Terminal" and "Reboot".
