Specify landing page when generating an authorization URL

Developers can now use the screen_hint parameter when generating an authorization URL to direct users to either the sign-in or sign-up screen in AuthKit. This enhancement offers more control over authentication flows in the developer’s application.

Developers can use a new API endpoint to retrieve identifiers of a user from external identity providers. At the moment, we support Microsoft, GitHub, and Google OAuth providers.
