Release Notes is a monthly summary of new features, product improvements and upcoming releases.

Find fastest and slowest Pages in your Sites

We launched Pages Leaderboard so you can identify fast and slow areas of your Sites quickly. In the Pages Leaderboard, you can sort Pages within your Sites based on three selected metrics and device type (desktop or mobile). Calibre will show the last 15 measurements for each metric in your Pages dashboard, colour-coded based on recommended value ranges, so you know which areas need improvements most.

See the Pages leaderboard in action.

We encourage customising metrics based on your organisational or project goals. For example, you might be wanting to focus on Core Web Vitals. You can also use the Pages Leaderboard for competitive benchmarking, by tracking your landing pages against competitors. With sorting and filtering, you can easily rank Pages against each other.

Learn more about the Pages Leaderboard in the announcement post and our documentation.

Understand Lighthouse audits better

We improved the structure of Lighthouse audits available in Performance, PWA, Best Practices, Accessibility and SEO tabs for each Snapshot. Now, all audits returned from Lighthouse fall within the following categories:

  • Passed
  • Opportunities
  • Informative
  • Not applicable
  • Items to manually check

With improved categorisation, you can pinpoint which areas to focus on easier.

Lighthouse 6.3.0

Our Test Agents now use the latest Lighthouse release, 6.3.0. As always, we upgrade to stable Lighthouse releases as they become available so that you can leverage the newest version.

New documentation: Pages Leaderboard, Test Profile automation and more

We documented how to read and customise your Pages Leaderboard. If you’re using the CLI and Node.js API to automate your performance monitoring, we added a guide to adding and managing Test Profiles.

Last but not least, we updated the list of the most common reasons for Lighthouse test failures.

Upcoming releases: refreshed and faster navigation

Soon, you will see an update in Calibre’s primary navigation. Switching between Sites and Organisations should become more straightforward and less time-consuming (including keyboard support). What has been single navigation becomes two:

  • primary navigation: outlining your account, Organisation(s) and Site(s).
  • secondary navigation: contextual menus depending on whether you are viewing Profile, Sites or Organisation settings.
Find and switch between Sites more easily.
Find and switch between Sites more easily.

With this release, we also sped up how Calibre’s views load, so the experience of navigating the interface should feel much more snappy.
