Hello everyone, it’s been a while since we’ve had a formal post on our Updates Blog.
We haven’t been sitting around doing nothing, in fact we’ve added a ton of stuff. I ran into this issue where I felt like every update had to come out as a big release with plenty of fan-fare. This didn’t match up with how development was happening though, with scattered fixes and enhancements all over the place. News of those changes got lost in various support tickets and message board posts, or maybe was never posted at all.
For this reason I’m going to change how updates are announced. We’re going to treat the updates blog like a changelog, with a granular list of things that have been added, changed, or removed. I think it’s great to open up conversation about new features as they happening. Additionally, you can get early access to things that are still in development.
Let’s get started!
This one is going to be a bit beefier, highlighting some things that have been added over the past few months that didn’t get a proper announcement.
Note: Anything labeled as admin only is not generally available and can only be enabled by the site admins. If you’re interested in using something mentioned before general availability reach out to us
Markdown can be used instead of the rich text editor for community topics/replies, devlog posts, and some comments sections.
Deployed initial version of a system for sub-products (DLC, in-app purchases, etc.). (admin only)
You can see sub-products live from a buyer’s perspective on Bot Land.
Added a new Ratings and reviews page on your library for browsing your rating & review history
The theme editor was updated to match the UI on the project page editor
Comment rendering was rewritten for logged in users to make it easier to interact with comment threads
Out website translation project has made incredible progress since we launched it earlier this year.

That’s all for now. Keep in mind this is a special changelog since it’s covering many updates from many months. Future changelogs will be more focused.
Thanks for reading
