🏗️ Updates to plugin and widget publishing

We’re launching some improvements to how creators publish, manage, and promote their plugins and widgets:

  • Invite multiple people to publish updates to the same resource
  • Create a playground file to provide more context on when and how to use a resource
  • Transfer ownership of private resources among organization members
  • New updates to the resource publishing modal - like the ability to paste in icons and cover art, add a tagline for browsing and search, publishing an update without incrementing the version number, and a new template to make creating publishing assets a breeze
