Jun 17, 2024 - New Early Hints behavior

With Early Hints, you can send an HTTP 103 status code with preliminary HTTP headers at the client request stage, so that a browser can preload critical website resources or preconnect to a specific domain while waiting for the final HTML response. You can configure this behavior in Property Manager or use EdgeWorkers to dynamically calculate the most optimal resources to send as Early Hints at the edge.
