    We had a pretty slow month related to new features on Cloud for June, so for the first time in over a year, we haven't posted dedicated release notes for the month. We did do some fixes, so they're documented below for anthropological reasons.

    July 28th
    • Closed an embarrassing security hole that only affected demo site. No account information was leaked.
