Welcome back to the Replit Changelog!
We merged a total of 866 pull requests in the past two weeks. In addition to the major launches we shipped this week, we also have some small polish changes.
We launched Replit India to improve the speed and performance of the coding experience for developers located far from the United States. You can now choose between the United States and the India server clusters.
Navigate to your account, change your server location, and fire your Repls up with minimal latency.
Git in the Shell
We just shipped a smoother Git experience in the shell. Instead of manually entering your Git credentials for each command, simply grant Replit access to your credentials, allowing for seamless control of your repositories without any authentication issues.
Many thanks to Ryan for all his hard work in making the Git experience better for everyone.

Bounties Page Redesign
The Bounties page has undergone a redesign. On top of looking better, you can now view Bounties you've posted and Bounties you're participating in.
Anon Repl Redesign
Have you checked out the Replit dog or the Replit cat before? Unfortunately you won't be directed to a cute dog or cat GIF, instead you'll land on an Anonymous Repl. Anonymous Repls are Repls that don't have an owner and give you a complete surprise if you fork them.
Thanks to our famous and amazing designer Clément Rozé, also known as Bookie0, the page for anonymous Repls has been updated to use our Design System
Anonymous Repls were more widely used in the past but are now deprecated. If you want to learn more about anonymous Repls, check out the blog post.
Markdown Component Redesign
Did you know you can have an element that hides and shows content in Markdown files? You can use the
<summary> html tags to do this as in the image below:
We fixed these components that used to render with poor spacing.
Speaking of Markdown, we recently published a [Markdown tutorial]/tutorials/markdown) covering everything from basic to advanced syntax, as well as custom renderers for Loom videos, Figma canvases, and more.
Badge Overflow fix
Who doesn't love to have tons of badges on their Replit profile? Faris sure loves to! Before, creators with many badges would find some of them hiding behind the showcased Repl on their profile.
Be sure to show your gratitude to the CSS grandmaster for this and lots of other UI polish.
Did you know Replit had a Discord server? It's been around for many years but the link to it had been broken for a while. We've now fixed it so you can hop right into the Discord server and instantly connect with the community.
