Read the Docs newsletter - November 2023

News and updates

  • Work continues on hardening Addons, our new in-documentation JavaScript client that supports all documentation tools. We’re looking for people in the community to test out this new functionality, and will be expanding access in the near future.

  • Python 3.12 is now supported on builds, and is the default version used when you specify 3 in your configuration file.

  • Language codes are now normalized in URLs:

  • Our search infrastructure was upgraded to Elastic Search 8, which should provide faster and better search results.

  • We submitted a fix to the API Key library we use to make API calls to our servers much faster, which should result in faster build times for all users.

Upcoming changes

  • We are working to expand the functionality of our redirects feature to support more use cases. More will be announced here in the coming month.

  • We are planning an 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.
