This release replaces the use of CloudWatch Metrics with [CustomMetrics](https://npmjs.com/package/custom-metrics] for data sent by the Ioto device agent and displayed by the Builder dashboard widgets.
CustomMetrics presents a cost-effective alternative metrics API that is considerably more budget-friendly and efficient compared to standard CloudWatch metrics. We still support CloudWatch metrics of course, but internally, the Builder and Ioto have eliminated the use of CloudWatch Metrics to offer a more cost effective solution.

We’ve added royalty-free subscription plans for the Ioto device agent. You can now use either the volume-based or royalty-free subscription plans.
The volume-based subscriptions employ a per-manufactured device fee that is calculated on a sliding scale where the price decreases with increasing device volumes. The volume-based subscriptions are billed monthly or yearly in advance and offer a lower-cost of entry for smaller device volumes.
Royalty-free subscriptions offer an annual renewable license to embed the device agent in new devices without a device volume limit.
