17K GitHub stars? That's some serious love! Plane is likely one of the fastest-growing open-source projects currently. Moreover, Plane holds the distinction of being the most-starred project under #project-management on GitHub. We're truly grateful. In appreciation, we're excited to share a few releases from September.
Without further delay, let's dive into our round-up.
We’ve made some UX upgrades to our layouts. These upgrades enable you to add issues swiftly with our new Quick-add feature. It's designed to simplify and expedite the issue creation process, letting you capture those wild ideas with ease.
The new issue addition extends to the end of every:
You’ll now see a new addition to our sidebar - All Issues. This feature provides a global view across your entire workspace, enabling management of issues from all projects in one place. What does it do?
We've made some improvements to the Create Issue modal. These enhancements now equip the modal with the ability to save issue drafts.
Here's how the issue drafts work:
Parent issues now boast increased visibility over sub-issues, even when they are nested five levels deep.
Sub-issues are displayed based on the hierarchy of their nesting. 🤯
You can now directly edit sub-issue properties from within the parent issue.
Prefer staying within the parent issue? No problem, all sub-issues of the parent issue now open in a peek-over mode.
We’ve made some significant upgrades to Plane Deploy, with the goal of making the customer feedback process smoother and faster. Here are the upgrades ⬇️
Ten commits, and thousand lines later, Gantt layout now comes out of Beta with killer features.
We've introduced a new feature, Peek Overview, which provides a quick look at your issues. This view is compatible with the spreadsheet layout and is also available for deployed public projects.
We’ve introduced new relation properties to issues– related, duplicate, start-date, making it easier for you to add detail to the issue. These function similarly to how the blocks and blocks by properties work.
With the integration of time zones, all activities on Plane are now more accurately recorded. Update your time zone settings in your user profile to enhance communication with your project members.
Too many notifications? We’ve made some upgrades, hit Mark as read from the notifications dropdown to declutter all your notifications.
Peek modes are available for My Issues and Project Issues in List, Kanban, Spreadsheet and Gantt layouts.
