New updates and improvements to Linear.

Improved My Issues view

Improved My Issues view

Previously, the My Issues view would display currently active issues that have been assigned to you. By popular request, we improved the view to allow you to quickly display issues that are either Assigned to you, Created by you, or ones you've Subscribed to. Issues on your Backlog will now also be included in the listing.

User online status

User avatars will now show whether the user is currently online, away or offline. The profile page has been updated to show this information, too, and will additionally show the time they've last been online. You can also see this information in a popover when hovering on a user's avatar in the comments section of any issue.

Increased text contrast

We made subtle improvements to contrast and font size in light mode and the emails sent by Linear. The added contrast and slightly enlargened text size improves legibility especially for muted and faded text.

Resizable sidebars

You can now resize the left and right sidebars by clicking and dragging on their edges. Useful for making the most of your preferred window size.

Importers view

To make it easier to discover the ways to import issues into Linear from other systems, we added an Importers page in the the Workspace Settings. Linear currently supports importing issues from GitHub, Jira, Asana, and Pivotal Tracker.
