The Week in Developer Tools
Tailscale announced the next evolution of its pioneering mesh networking technology with new features that make it easy for large organizations to deploy zero trust networking at scale. The new release introduces robust security capabilities, ensuring that all company traffic is encrypted end-to-end, each network connection is authenticated, and every endpoint is reachable only by approved users.
It’s not a blanket policy change. As reported by The New York Times, Reddit’s API will remain free to developers who want to build apps and bots that help people use Reddit, as well as to researchers who wish to study Reddit for strictly academic or noncommercial purposes.

Developer Venture News
