Emoji reactions and notifications for closed issues

Emoji reaction for comments

We're excited to add a much requested feature which is both fun and useful: emoji reactions to comments. Now you don't need to send a comment to acknowledge a proposed solution, just select 👍 and the original comment author will be notified in their Inbox. The whole modern emoji set is available and anyone can join the party 🥳

✨ ProTip: To add emojis to issue descriptions, or to your own comments, just type :emoji-name:

Notifications for closed issues

To make communicating shipped features or canceled bugs easier, we also added two new notifications: completed and canceled issues. Whenever an issue is moved to either status, subscribers are notified.
