Our future generation platform is in closed beta. Please request to participate. During the beta, expect some rough edges, broken windows overlooking blue sky vistas, and regularly scheduled changes.

Recent changes to the CLI

Call them recent updates, release notes, or changelogs — our work makes them necessary, we enjoy writing them, and we want you to read and be inspired by them.

Change is good!
