Welcome to the latest edition of our monthly newsletter, where we
share the most relevant updates around Read the Docs,
offer a summary of new features we shipped
during the previous month,
and share what we’ll be focusing on in the near future.
We have a new team member! Ana just joined us as Frontend Developer
in the context of the CZI grant we were awarded
and the Read the Docs redesign and UX.
The first version of the tutorial we contributed to the official
Sphinx documentation is online,
as part of the new Sphinx 4.1 releases, and we are already working on expanding it.
We thank the Sphinx maintainers for the thorough reviews
and CZI for making it possible.
We are now tracking changes in our
which will help us with support issues and additional auditing features on Read the Docs for Business.
We added support for Python 3.10b4 in our testing Docker images!
The final 3.10.0 release will be in October,
but you can already test a development version.
Our commercial site now allows pull request previews to be public rather than private
and to control the privacy level of pull request
as well. As a result, we have dropped privacy levels for projects on our community site,
since they used to be a source of confusion.
We released sphinx-hoverxref 0.7b1,
which adds compatibility with Sphinx 4.1.
We fixed a long-standing usability issue in both our community and commercial sites:
notifications now have a close button.
You can always see the latest changes to our platforms in our Read the Docs
Ana, our new hire, will spend some time getting familiarized with our
development practices and tools, and perform some quality assurance on
the upcoming new version of our Sphinx
along with Anthony.
Anthony will work on onboarding Ana, release a first release candidate
of version 1.0 of our Sphinx theme, and some finance work.
Eric will continue overseeing the implementation of the next stages of
our audit tracking along with Santos, doing code review, and improving
our sales & marketing processes.
Juan Luis will expand the Sphinx tutorial while doing basic
bug triaging for the project, and start with a much needed tutorial for
Read the Docs itself.
Manuel will keep working on our Embed API version 3, push the final
tweaks needed to support Python 3.10 along with Santos,
and continue improving our deployment processes.
Santos will continue with the implementation of our audit tracking,
inform our users about the upcoming changes in privacy levels on our
community site, and wrap up the work around sharing specific
versions of commercial projects.
Projects that were using Git LFS on our site noticed that it stopped working
at the end of June.
Even though it is not officially supported from our side,
we wanted to make it work again,
but it took several days to understand what was happening.
