Practices for building, Linear Method
Alongside building a great product for software teams, we also want to define a new way of building software–the Linear Method. It encapsulates the principles, practices and habits that enable and encourage us to build magical, high quality software. 
GitLab merge request support
We’re excited to add support for GitLab. It lets you integrate Linear issues and merge requests with the same functionality as our existing GitHub integration:
  • Link multiple merge requests with issues
  • Support custom workflows with draft support
  • Support reverted merge requests
You can connect Linear with or your self-hosted GitLab installation starting today.
