Bigger release card

We have increased the size of the release card in your projects overview tab to make more room for additional information. It now shows the number of total installs of your app and you can expect to see more stats about your app in the future!

New Discovery sections

Apps on Deta Discovery are now grouped into 3 tabs:

  • Popular: The most popular apps on Space based on the number of installs
  • Recent: The most recently added or updated apps
  • Hot: Apps that have gotten the most installs in a short time

  • Verify access tokens during login
  • Hide access token from output during login

Other changes

  • Redesigned icons for Builder and Docs app
