    • Markdown: backspace at the start of a header, converts it to a paragraph
    • Misc UI improvement for the editor - cleaner “Add block” button, simpler UI for insert menu, support for presets to have a preview image or an icon (before it was just an icon)

    Next generation components

    • Fixed incorrect encoding of quotes in next-gen components


    • Updated new colors for editor - no more editor blue, we now use the theme colors
    • Calendar tool now provides a set of links for easy copying


    • Fixed an issue with next-gen components couldn’t be duplicated
    • set() css function can now insert a number
    • Fixed bug that allowed for content to still be editable while in a sleep state
    • Comments in-between conditionals led to the if and else blocks being rendered in the next-gen components.
    • Non-admins can no longer toggle experimental features in the workspace settings
    • ESP syntax would cause a rendering issue with the next-gen components. We now auto-escape all ${} we find in the message content

    • The “upload…” button would not open the upload dialog
    • Image paths wouldn’t get updated in certain cases and would lead to broken image paths
