Next.js authentication at the edge and bug fixes for our upcoming magic link launch

Next.js authentication at the edge

Our big launch this week is our new Next.js authentication library that supports sub-millisecond authentication at the edge. This was the culmination of a multi-month project cutting across two teams and we couldn't be happier with the result.

We'll be continuing to improve our Next.js support throughout the end of the year, including first-class support for server-side rendering and React's new Server Components.

This week we also launched many bug fixes to our upcoming magic link functionality. We have updated our own sign-up form to use magic links instead of one-time passwords sent by email, and we expect to make magic links the default for all new applications soon.
