ยท 2 min read

We're pleased to announce the availability of Swimm 0.8.6โ— ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿšข๐ŸŠ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿ†•๐Ÿ’ฅ๐ŸŽ‰โœจ

New Features:

  • After reviewing a doc, you can now send a quick thank you to everyone who contributed to creating that document. At the bottom of the document, there are 3 options you can pick: great doc, time-saver, and valuable insights.
  • You can assign a doc to a Swimm user or email address via the Assign link located below the document title. You can choose from a predefined set of reasons (needs review, needs updating, FYI, other) and assign it and include an optional note. After assigning a doc, the assignee will receive an email with the assignment details.
  • You can obtain and share a direct link to a code snippet with the anchor icon located at the top-right corner of a snippet.
  • Introducing a new GitHub App setting called Configure Swimm Verify Check . When enabled, Swimm will fail only when outdated/out of sync docs are caused by your current PR. When disabled (default), Swimm will show updates related to any outdated/out of sync docs.


  • You can see a list of all contributors on a doc (not only the last contributor) when viewing a doc.

A few changes in our editor

  • Slash command "/link" changed into 2 commands: "/doc" and "/playlist" to add links to these items specifically.
  • Typing "Enter" creates a new block which results in a more fluid and smooth editing experience.
  • A new contextual menu when clicking the block handle icon shows the block options.

Bug Fixes:

  • When "Swimm Verify Check" configuration checkbox is enabled with a PR from a side-branch of a side-branch - Swimm Verify didn't behave correctly
