New updates and improvements to Linear.

OpenAI in-app Help

In-app help center search powered by OpenAI generating a response to a query

OpenAI powered in-app Help

Today, we're releasing an upgraded in-app help center to Beta. In addition to some design tweaks, we added the ability to use OpenAI's GPT-3 model to ask questions from our documentation. You can also still use regular keyword based search for both docs and keyboard shortcuts.

We're excited about the possibilities to help Linear users quickly learn about concepts and features. You can try the beta today by pressing ? inside the application and typing your question.

The new intelligent help search was built in collaboration with Relevance.AI who are also a Linear customer.

HMAC signed webhooks

To improve security of Linear's webhooks, we added HMAC based signing of webhook messages which can be used to verify their authenticity. You can get the signature secret from your webhook settings, which is available for both regular and OAuth webhooks, and use it to calculate SHA256 based signature of the content for verification.
