Initial Siemens Support

Copia now has initial support for Siemens projects (currently in alpha)! We are still working on improving rendering, diffing and expanding the set of supported extensions. Check in a Siemens project today and feel free to send us feedback as we work to improve Siemens support.

Other Fixes and Improvements

  • Improved disambiguation in desktop app: If you have multiple checkouts of the same repository (for instance, to make use of multiple branches simultaneously) the Desktop app will show the directory name of the checkout.
  • Improved error messages for locked files: Often if you attempt to pull or switch branches with a project file open, the operation will fail. The Desktop app will now detect this situation and suggest closing open project files.
  • Email Notifications: We now send email notifications for Review Requests, Mentions and other events. You can adjust your notification preferences by visiting Settings > Account and choosing to decrease or disable email notifications.

Rung Comments + Desktop Auth

Rung Comments

On a Pull Request you can now write a comment on a rung, and even highlight a specific item on the rung. The PR discussion tab shows the rung and links out to the  routine viewer so that everyone has access to the full context of a discussion. Rung comments can improve collaboration by providing specific actionable feedback with rich context information.

When viewing a diff in the context of a pull request, simply click a rung or rung element and add your comments in the Comment Modal.

Desktop Auth

Version 0.0.12 of the desktop app gives you the ability to log into your Copia account in the desktop app. This makes it faster and easier to clone repositories, open Pull Requests from the desktop app, and can reduce the need to  type your username and password in the desktop app. It also lays the groundwork for using a self hosted server.
