Release #60

Authentication improvements, heavy performance optimizations and a completely new SSO for our enterprise clients - because sometimes polish is worth 20 new features!

This version was released on March 16, 2022

 

With this version, we have completely reworked how authentication works - to make it more performant, more secure and finally, more easy to use especially for our enteprise clients with completely new SSO (Single Sign-On) integration that supports all commonly used authentication providers.

Additionally, we have also squashed several annoying bugs, which will make using docs even easier for you!

New Authentication & SSO

We have greatly improved the underlaying infrastructure that provides for secure authentication when you access Supernova and all your workspace data. This results in state-of-the-art security layer, powered by world's leading authentication service with SOC 2 / SOC 3 certifications.

We have also added SSO (Single Sign-On) that can now be accessed easily through the sign in page when you haven't logged in into the application just yet. The new SSO implementation allows integration with all commonly used authentication providers, and is available on all enterprise plans.

 

You can now access SSO easily through our new sign in / sign up page

Performance updates

We have significantly improved to speed of the cloud loading, especially when loading it for the first time in a while! And because we know just how important it is to have a snappy experience, this is but one of many performance improvements planned for the near future - stay tuned!
