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!
