Webhook queue delays are expected to be resolved and are expected to be back to standard response times.
Photon and P1s devices are no longer experiencing degraded connectivity.
All other intermittent degradation is expected to be resolved. Devices making use of System.sleep() may require additional time to recover (estimated ~25 minutes).
The Web IDE continues to be unavailable; we will work with the intention of restoring Web IDE functionality in the next business day.
