We're thrilled to announce the launch of improved support for Next.js Incremental Static Regeneration (ISR) on Atlas.
What improvements does this release include?
In most cases, Next.js Incremental Static Regeneration (ISR) works as expected on Atlas - however, there are two issues:
  1. Traffic Spikes:
    When traffic spikes, new replicas of the application are spawned. These replicas mirror the version of the application that was originally built, which includes statically generated content that may now be outdated.
  2. Low Traffic Periods:
    Conversely, if a site receives no traffic for an extended period, the application scales down. When traffic picks up again, the initial visitors encounter this outdated content. This content isn’t cached; instead, it initiates a background revalidation process. After this process is complete, any subsequent requests will receive the freshly updated content, which is then cached.
Our solution for ISR support effectively addresses both issues, ensuring your site always displays the most recent content, regardless of traffic patterns. If your sites use Next.js Incremental Static Regeneration, we recommend using
package to ensure your content is going to be up to date regardless of the traffic patterns to your sites.
Does that mean Atlas supports on-demand Incremental Static Regeneration now?
Currently, on-demand ISR is not supported on Atlas. However, our team is actively working on adding this feature to our platform. Once it’s available, the use of the
package will be required to enable on-demand ISR on Atlas.
In the meantime, we are excited to offer our users the opportunity to start utilizing this enhanced functionality on their headless WordPress websites.

Following the official Node.js release dates, we’re ending support for Node.js version 16 on Atlas, effective May 6th, 2024. This decision allows us to focus our resources on supporting newer versions of Node.js, which include critical security updates and performance improvements.
What This Means for You
If your applications or projects currently use Node.js version 16, they will continue to function without interruption. However, beginning on May 6th, any new builds of your Atlas applications set to utilize Node.js version 16 will not succeed. To avoid this issue, you'll need to upgrade your site to Node.js version 18 or newer.
Recommended Actions
We strongly encourage you to upgrade to one of the newer versions of Node.js supported on Atlas as soon as possible. This will ensure your applications can be updated seamlessly.
  1. Review your applications: Check your applications for any dependencies that might be affected by this change and plan your upgrade path accordingly.
  2. Test your applications: After upgrading, thoroughly test your applications to ensure they operate as expected without any issues.
