New updates and improvements to Linear.

Better menus and view options

New contextual menus

We added new contextual menus to Linear. Now you can right click on any issue to change its properties or copy important information like the git branch name. Contextual menus work whether you're viewing a list, board or sub-issues list and make Linear faster for users who prefer to use their mouse. It's also a nice way to learn the most important keyboard shortcuts.

We also added contextual menus to other parts of the app: projects when viewing all projects, Inbox notifications and pull request links inside of issues. Right click to bring up their menus and take quick actions.

View options

Two weeks ago we released new view options as a Linear preview. Since then we have improved the available preferences and added it to more views including the Backlog, projects and cycles. We're excited about this as it enabled many of our most requested features such as the ability to reorder issues in a list and select which fields you see on notifications in your Inbox. Starting today, view options are available for all Linear users and we'll keep adding new preferences over time.
