This week we have updates on comments, inviting and a large list of smaller improvements and fixes.

Improved comments
Comments are now editable by the submitter. Once edited, there will indication that edits were made. We also fixed TODO lists inside comments and they can be (un)checked after comment is submitted.
Timestamps on comments and other issue history entries now work as link so you’ll be able to share a single comment.
Invite your team
Inviting your team is now easier with dedicated invite links. To grab your personal share link, head to People tab under settings. As always, you’ll also be able to invite your team with email.
Link to issues in GitHub
While not a new feature on Linear, we thought it would be worth mentioning that GitHub has added ability to autolink issue ID with external issue tracker. This of course works with Linear, and you’ll be able to set it up under repository settings for each team. Just map your team key (e.g. KEY-) to Linear URL (https://linear.app/issue/KEY-<num>). Don’t forget to replace the team key with yours.
