All the small things

by jdavis on December 17, 2014

Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve released a few small changes:

1) Links no longer open in the same window.

2) The backlog can now be pinned open. If you click the thumbtack in the backlog, it will stay open until you unpin it for that project.
