Read the Docs newsletter - September 2021¶
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 published the first release candidate of version 1.0.0 of our Sphinx theme, which adds support for recent versions of Sphinx and docutils among other things, and announced our future plans for it. Check out the linked blog post to know more. Update: We have released 1.0 to PyPI
The first part of the new Read the Docs tutorial, which we wrote as part of our CZI grant, is online! We hope that it serves as a better starting point for people seeking to learn how to use our platform.
We added the possibility for users to remove themselves from a project without having to ask an owner to remove them (as long as they are not the only owner of the project).
We fixed a small usability issue with our search-as-you-type box, that ignored the first typed characters under certain circumstances.
We have documented our unofficial support for Gitea, and made other minor documentation fixes.
You can always see the latest changes to our platforms in our Read the Docs Changelog.
Ana will continue researching tools for conducting automated testing on our Sphinx theme, review pull requests corresponding to the 1.1 milestone, and make some small styling improvements to our documentation.
Eric will keep pushing updates on our Commercial landing page and continue working on our sales processes. He’s also working to continue building EthicalAds as well.
Juan Luis will continue working on our Read the Docs tutorial, improving our onboarding experience, and put our email marketing and on-site notifications to work.
Manuel will finish the work on our new Docker images and build process, and keep designing our upcoming GitHub Application.
We have been making changes to how we store cookies to make our site more secure. This has caused some minor issues in certain web browsers or to users that were embedding private documentation pages inside an iframe.
