New updates and improvements to Linear.

Streamlined issue extensions

Streamlined issue extensions

To simplify the issue view we designed the issue extensions (Github, Gitlab, and Sentry links) to take less space while keeping the same information.

No more pointers

We've arrived at a point where we feel that Linear is a true application, not a web page. We have keyboard shortcuts, contextual menus, no page loads, and realtime updates. To double down on the application-like behavior, we have removed pointer cursors from the entire application, except links to external resources.

Helping the climate

At Linear, we want to do our part in helping to mitigate the effects of climate change. Starting today, 1% revenue from Linear subscriptions will go towards carbon removal. This happens through Stripe’s new climate initiative which you can read more on their blog.
