November 2023 Newsletter
This month, we have almost two dozen product updates that make workspaces, collections, Postbot, and the Postman VS Code extension even more useful. And if you're looking for instruction on API testing beyond the basics, join our online Intergalactic session Dec. 13.
We're excited to share Postman: API-First Journey, a game for Android and iOS that combines our twin passions of software development and gaming. And we're busy planning POST/CON 24, a gathering of API leaders and Postman experts from around the globe. Register now to learn the details as they're announced.

Within your workspaces, users can now add comments to your examples, which show your API endpoints in action and detail how requests and responses work.
Four new ways to use the Postman VS Code extension
You can now access Collection Runner from within our VS Code extension. Plus, there's a Postman Console inside the extension for debugging API calls and scripts; the ability to view and edit documentation; and support for AWS signature and OAuth 1.0 documentation.
Postman proxy and Interceptor just got better
We've upgraded filter support for active and past sessions with Postman proxy and Interceptor sessions. Plus, we've improved the Interceptor UI and added support for request timestamps.
You asked, we delivered: Postman skip request
You can now skip or stop requests from being sent within the pre-request script stage of your API testing. This feature works in the Postman API client, Collection Runner, and Postman Flows.
Postman now supports Atlassian's ASAP
