Yeah, the version that BigCommerce started using a few years back is considered legacy now, we're rolling out the latest and greatest in mid-April. In the meantime, you can still write basic docs with stoplight.io/docs/ and the April release will include a bunch of neat features.

Kristen - is that new version of developer.bigcommerce.com still using Stoplight? Ie. as a customised/self-hosted enterprise version of Stoplight.

I'm not in the loop about the details of their deployment, but yes, they are still using Stoplight. I'm not quite sure what you mean by new version.

I mentioned new version because there was a bigcommerce.stoplight.io and just assuming that was what you pointed out as 'legacy'. I was looking at developer.bigcommerce.com and saw there were hints of stoplight in there but couldn't confirm. I was wondering if they were using a self-hosted enterprise and customizable version of Stoplight then ?
ps. full disclosure, we are a new customer on Stoplight.io, and the level of customization we have available is obviously closer to bigcommerce.stoplight.io than developer.bigcommerce.com
