Inbox guide

Last release we've added a brand new guide, we said we would add more content in the future. Well, here it is! We've added new content about the Inbox and its notifications. Also, the whole guide has been improved with new illustrations and better explanations.

Board automation

We've improved issue boards automation to better react to changes made on GitHub. Now, an issue will be moved automatically to Done or Cancelled when it gets closed as Completed or Not Planned on GitHub.

Read more about issue boards automation.

Public repositories notifications

In v1.3.0 release, we opened access to public repositories for everyone. This allows users to access our volta-net/feedback repository for example and share feedback directly from the app. However, we were missing notifications for public repositories at the time. We've now added subscriptions and notifications for public repositories, so you can now subscribe to those repositories and be notified for example when a new release is published or when something happens on an issue you're subscribed on.
