Release Notes

Junk Food Release 🍫

Released on 2019 Aug 15

What’s new

  • Link previews
    In Discussions, when someone posts a link to a blog article, YouTube video, or one of many other external sources, a preview will now be created to provide you with some more clarity about the content before you click.

    Best of all, the preview frames also support GIFs and videos, so they can now be played from directly within the timeline instead of opening in a new window.

Who can do this: all users in orgs with Discussions enabled

  • Hebrew is now supported
    The addition of Hebrew in My Preferences > Languages brings the total of supported languages to 11.

    Who can do this: all users

  • Tasks Beta updates
    Users in the Tasks early access beta will notice a number of small updates and improvements, including support for the new Links Preview feature (see above) and the ability to drag-and-drop attachments directly into the Details area of the task form.

    Who can do this: all users in orgs who are beta-testing Tasks                                         

  • "Sign off" on mobile

    Previously, the Sign off feature for News Articles in mobile was only triggered when users left an article. It's now been added inline as well, appearing at the bottom of articles that require it.

    Who can do this: all users (however, the feature can only be added to News articles by Reporters or Editors)

    PLUS  87 other bug fixes and/or performance enhancements.


Did you know that Cracker Jack is widely considered to be the world's first junk food (based on the definition of junk food as "a commercial product high in sugar, salts, and fat with little or no nutritional value")? The caramel coated popcorn-and-peanuts treat was first packaged and sold in 1896 and is still going strong today!

Personally, I think all that stuff about junk food having no nutritional value is hogwash. I mean, look at CJ's sailor boy mascot—all he eats are Cracker Jacks and he's been shilling their product for more than a century now (and still doesn't look a day over 10)!
