Release notes for 2024

A list of recent data updates, fixes and new product functionality

We update this page regularly with details of the important data updates, fixes and new features added to Overton. An easy way to keep up to date is to sign up for our newsletter, which will highlight any major changes to the app or data.

We deploy changes to Overton daily. There isn’t a fixed release cycle and typically new features are released as soon as they are tested and pass QA. This page lists the work we’ve done in 2024. There are other pages for previous years.

If you’ve got any questions about any of the items below please reach out to support or your account manager.
