Read the Docs newsletter - December 2023

News and updates

  • We have shipped single version projects to allow projects to be versioned without having translations. This is a long-requested feature that we’ve excited to ship based on our Proxito refactor work.

  • We improved our webhook security by requiring a secret to be configured for all webhooks. This will help prevent malicious actors from triggering builds and other actions.

  • We fixed an XSS vulnerability that was reported by an external reporter: Surya Dev Singh. Thanks for the report!

  • Work continues on Addons, where we’ve added support for explicit EthicalAds placements on documentation pages, and are working on a new interface for configuring Addons.

You can always see the latest changes to our platforms in our Read the Docs Changelog.

Upcoming changes

  • We are working to expand the functionality of our redirects feature to support more use cases. This work is close to shipping.

  • We continue working on the upgrade to our dashboard notification system, so that users have more control and better context for on-site notifications.

  • Our beta dashboard continues to be tested in public beta, and new functionality for Addons configuration will only be available in that new interface.

Possible issues

  • Users need to update their webhooks before January 31, 2024 if they are configured without a secret. All users who need to take action should have received email and site notifications about this.
