Release 20180420

A few things were getting in the way of a fun experience πŸ˜’, so I've fixed them in this release. We have some exciting changes on the way πŸ˜€, and I've been laying some of the groundwork for those behind the scenes.

Improvements

  • Set titles on different views.

Bug fixes

Release 20180416

Release 20180416

This is the first of several releases to streamline the workflow so you can get writing faster, and find your content more easily.

Changes

  • Write section now directly opens the editor. Start writing a draft immediately, then save when you're ready to share it with the team.
    • Click Write any time to jump back to your draft.
    • Your draft is only visible to you until you save it.
    • When you save a draft, it becomes a topic and is visible to the rest of your team on the topic list.
  • Manage section now houses both topics and collections.
  • You will now only see the Welcome page on your first login, after that the app will open on the Manage view. You can still see the Welcome page by clicking the Corilla logo on the top right.

Release 20180330

Release 20180330

Loads of search improvements this week. This one was a huge effort getting all your content indexed πŸ˜…, but I couldn't touch the search code without fixing a few things that were bothering me 😀.

Updates

  • Algolia search now powers most of the app. While you're enjoying Algolia's speed you may also notice some fixes:
    • You can now click anywhere in the search area to activate search.
    • Results now update as you type, no need to press Enter (but you can if you really need the search to start right now instead of in a tenth of a second ⏱️).
    • You will see matches for partial words and typos. Too tired to spell "awesomeness" or type all 11 letters into search? No longer a problem!
  • Adjusted the scroll height on the editor for maximum comfort πŸ›‹οΈπŸ˜Œ.

Bug fixes

  • Profile link was broken from within the topic editor and collection editor 😱. Now opens profile from anywhere.
Release 20180322

Release 20180322

We use Corilla all day every day, so we took a little time this week to improve on a few things that were bugging us πŸ˜–.

Updates

  • Updated print styles and added a print button which means that there's now much better printing βœ¨πŸ“„βœ¨.
  • Updated search for topics πŸ”πŸ˜ƒ. Now you can find your topics fast thanks to Algolia.
  • Begun the implementation of Algolia search across the whole app. Which is pretty much years overdue since we sat with some of the Algolia team when Corilla joined the NUMA Paris startup accelerator a few years ago. It feels like yesterday. They told us how fast their search appliance was. We nodded. And built our own anyway. So this release note, if you've read this far, is possibly a story on how in the end eventually everything is okay.
Release 20180316

Release 20180316

A great week of refinement to the knowledge base based on user feedback. One of those weeks after the "big feature" sprints to tighten up on the small backlog items and stay ahead of the tech debt. Also some work on making sure the new pricing model is running smoothly in the back end.

New Features

  • Added navigation to the knowledge base to allow easier transition between the collections within πŸ—ΊοΈπŸ›©οΈ

  • Teams trialing the medium and large tiers now gracefully downgrade to the new free tier at the end of the trial. This keeps your existing content active too.
  • The toolbar in the editor view is now full width. This matches the right pane pattern neater until we move this to a "Medium-alike" contextual UI action.
  • Some UI labels have been updated, including the knowledge base "featured topics" now simplified as "highlights".
