I'm not really sure what you mean
I'm not really sure what you mean by the site updating itself, to be honest.
The site is constantly undergoing updates and maintenance work, but that is not something that is visible to the community.
In terms of adding new features to the site, the Socratic team does that, on average, about twice a year, give or take a couple of months depending on how their list of priorities is shaping up.
At this point, the Socratic app is priority number one, so new features will probably not be added to the site in the near future.
