  • v3.2.0

Another exciting release, friends!

Occasionally you want to share a draft version of your release notes before publishing them to the world. We are testing a new “Public Share Link” feature that allows you to generate a unique link for your releases and share them with anyone outside your organization. The release can be in any state, private, or draft.

We generated a share link for one of our private draft releases as a demo. Click here to check it out.

You can enable this feature via Settings → Labs.

P.S. It’s also great for previewing your release notes before making them publicly available.
