Owlet Weekly Update (Week of November 22)

Hello and happy Thanksgiving week folks! It's a short work week for most of us due to the holiday, but that didn't stop us from cooking up some exciting things—details below! 🦃


Release Scheduling Update

We're now ramping up our release frequency to be nearly daily, so these Changelog posts will be published on the Monday following the previous week of releases, with the post covering everything that went out during that week. The publishing date is backdated to the time of the last release of the week. We appreciate your patience as we workshop this process!


We've been rolling out a redesigned docs experience for some time now—check out this page for the details! Changes that are only applicable to the redesigned docs experience will be prefixed with a 🆕 emoji. The legacy docs style will be deprecated on December 31, 2021.

✨ New & Improved

  • As part of some major ongoing authentication improvements underway, we've enhanced the recently-redesigned login pages to now support passwordless logins! Now your users can simply opt to receive a login link in their inbox rather than typing "password123"* into yet another field. 📥
  • As previously announced, our new Metrics experience has officially starting rolling out! This release contains more polish on the Metrics front before we officially launch it to the masses early next year. If you've gotten a chance to play around and have any feedback for us, please drop us a line! 📊
  • 🆕 This release includes a nice little addition for response examples in the API Reference section: headers! If you've documented example response headers, they now show up the same way they would if someone hit the "Try It!" button. ⚽
  • All you favicon fiends out there may have noticed that we finally refreshed the color of our logo for dashboard pages. 💙

🛠 Fixes & Updates

  • 🆕 Fixed an issue where navigating to a different version of the docs would occasionally take you to the wrong place. 🧭
  • 🆕 Tweaking some hover states to make some things more obviously clickable in the API Reference section. 🪤
  • More improvements to our new editor, which you can play around with in our discussion forums! ✍️
  • 🆕 Fixed an issue where TypeScript code samples weren't properly being categorized as such. 🗃
  • 🆕 A few copy edits and fixes for the callback support we shipped last week. 🍌
  • 🆕 Some minor keyboard navigation fixes in the discussion forums. ⌨️

*DISCLAIMER: This is a joke, please use a secure password instead!
