Release Schedule :rocket:

Due to some recent changes in our development workflow, we have been pushing releases much more frequently. These releases are typically small, but can be as often as several in a day, instead of once or twice a week like we used to do :racing_car: :sparkles:

Posting every single release here would be a bit tedious, especially as many of the changes are internal. Moving forward, I’m going to try posting once a week, listing any relevant user-facing changes from the past week. I may also edit a single post if necessary as we make more releases.

Hope it makes sense, and sorry for missing some announcements lately!
