We're pleased to announce the availability of Swimm 0.6.4โ— ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿšข๐ŸŠ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿ†•๐Ÿ’ฅ๐ŸŽ‰โœจ

New Features:

  • Playlist DAC (Docs As Code) improvements & finalizations. Please report any issues!
  • Pre-commit hooks version 0.7 released, now automatically downloads the correct CLI binary and supports opening issues on failure via webhook.
  • New documentation and developer community site: docs.swimm.io

Improvements:

  • Snippet Studio now allows you to reselect snippets from other files (for cases where the code actually moved to another file).
  • Branch selector menu is now easier to use for those that have many different branches.
  • Automation tools (such as CLI binaries) are now served from Firebase, not Github. This solves intermittent rate-limiting issues.
  • External links in Swimm content now open in a new tab by default.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed an issue where copying smart text resulted in an extraneous ')'.
  • Fixed issue with Docker files in smart text causing reference issues.
  • Fixed issue where adding a repo caused all of them to show up as loading.
  • Fixed issue where loading animations stopped while things were still loading.

If you have any questions or issues, please reach out on our Community Slack Channel. You can also drop in during our next office hours event. We hope to see you there!

We're very thrilled to launch our new developer documentation and community portal using the immensely flexible and feature rich Docusaurus to manage all of the content.

Along, with detailed documentation, videos and tutorials, you'll find detailed release notes for every Swimm Release, as well as news about our other tools, such as our IDE Plugins or Github App.

You can pull RSS or Atom feeds to stay up-to-date:
https://docs.swimm.io/changelog/rss.xml

Swimm generally releases at the beginning of every week, so you can expect updates to be pretty low volume. There will also be a note if new tutorials are added, or any other features that impact the functionality of this site. Major new features and announcements can be found on our main blog.

Please consider checking our our community info and consider joining our Community Slack Channel, or dropping in during our next office hours.

Please have a look at the code of conduct; we want everyone to feel welcome and safe and get value from attending.

Thanks for your interest in Swimm!
