2 February: AI writing assistant, a new home for important updates, and more!

We’ve added new ways to create and edit text with AI, plus a new Home section, snippet improvements, and a bunch of bug fixes

✨ New

  • GitBook AI can now help you write content, summarize information, and more — right on your page. Simply start a new line and press Space to bring up the palette. Try using it to expand on existing content, summarize disorganized notes, translate your text, and much more.

  • We’ve added a new Home section that highlights important things that might need your attention — such as open change requests, replies to your comments, recent page edits, and other big changes you might want to check out. You can access it from the sidebar.

  • You can now use new block types when editing a snippet, including images, files, drawings and API blocks. And we’ve removed the need to save changes you make manually — now, any updates you make will save automatically, just like a normal page.

➕ Improved

  • Git Sync can now parse table columns that use the Select column type, and show that data in GitHub or GitLab.

  • We’ve made some small improvements to the Add new… menu at the bottom of the table of contents and the resulting modals — including clearer UI copy and some nice new icons.

  • You should see a big improvement in the speed and reliability of Git Sync, as we’ve made some backend changes that help things run more smoothly.

🔧 Fixed

  • Fixed an issue that stopped a space’s footer inheriting customization settings from its collection.

  • Fixed the icon in the tooltip for an inline link, which was displaying too small.

  • Fixed a bug that could cause a RangeError when adding math formulae to a space with Git Sync enabled.

  • Fixed some bugs that prevented you from dragging and dropping items in a collection in list view or grid view

We’re constantly working on improving the way you and your team work in GitBook, and value your input on features, bugs, and more. Make sure you head to our official GitBook Community to join the discussion!
