This is a new-ish weekly post where we go over our repository's open source activity from the past week. New-ish because we think this type of a post is a better form-factor than the previous iteration. We'll be recapping last week, starting from Monday October 29th to Sunday November 4th.
We now automatically give open-source contributors their DEV contributor badge! This is a chron job that runs periodically. Thanks to @fredplante for the contribution! Click here for their pull request.
You can now create series for posts! We've technically had this supported for a while, but it previously had to be set by an admin. Check out Ben's changelog post below for all the details. You can also view all the technical notes in the associated pull request.
We previously had an issue where the integrations page in settings would occasionally timeout. This would mostly happen when someone had a lot of repos on their account. We now load the request asynchronously, and the widget is now a Preact component. Pull request by me here
Honorable mention to Dependabot for handling three security vulnerabilities through our dependencies!
That's it for this week! We'll have another recap next week.
