Runbooks v1.4 Released
It's been a while, but Runbooks v1.4 is now available. The delay is the result of a shift of focus to specifically serve small businesses. So, you'll notice that the main page at runbooks.app has changed a good deal for a start, and both signup and login have been greatly simplified (just email now: no passwords).
While most of our attention was on externally facing things, we added a few improvements within the product itself, too. You can now add markdown descriptions to your runbooks & runlogs. If you're a team admin, you can change your team's name. And, finally, we also fixed a number of bugs and minor nuisances.
As always, I love to hear your feedback on how Runbooks is working for you, and what you would like to see added in future releases!
