I asked the Codeforces about recent progress. That's what they told me:

Polygon:

  • true language autodetection (Polygon tries to compile a source using different dialects),

  • you can upload multiple items simultaneously on the tabs Files and Solutions,

  • feature to view stderr for invocations,

  • Rejudge/Abort links inside invocation page,

In addition, the work on API continues.

Codeforces:

  • preview comment when editing;

  • improved choice of t-shirt size;

  • the ability to change the handle once in the first 7 days after a registration;

  • improved performance of some API methods.
