Following our announcement at the start of May that the public beta of Overleaf v2 is now open for all, we’ve been collating your early feedback and first impressions of the new platform over the past couple of weeks. As expected, this is a mix of feedback on features we’re continuing to develop for v2 (such as the rich text mode), along with some small UI/UX issues you ran into when trying out the new platform.
We’ve now released some updates to v2 to address the most common of those small issues, which were concentrated on the look and feel of the code editor within v2 (compared to the existing Overleaf and ShareLaTeX editors), and on the wording around archived/deleted projects on the dashboard.

Through a series of happy coincidences, Overleaf was able to support the recent 1st Annual Trent Mathematical Science Research Symposium.
Our sponsorship allowed us to offer an award, and 'most entertaining talk' seemed like a worthy prize! We're thus delighted to share the news that the winner of the Overleaf Award for Most Entertaining Talk was Skye Griffith.

This is the second in a series of tips highlighting features available in Overleaf v2. If you'd like to try v2 for yourself, the beta is now open to the public at https://v2.overleaf.com.
Link sharing is an easy way to distribute your project to collaborators. In Overleaf v1, link sharing is on by default. In v2, it's off by default, but you can easily turn it on.

Autocompile is available in Overleaf v2! This is a new feature for those who have been using ShareLaTeX, and a familiar one for Overleaf users.

Since Overleaf joined forces with ShareLaTeX last year, our goal has been to create an online editor that outshines both ShareLaTeX and Overleaf. One that is simple to get started with for beginners, has powerful collaboration features for teams, and that seamlessly integrates with the other tools and publishers you work with.
We’ve come a long way since we started last July, and there’s still a lot of work to do, but we’re excited to announce that as of this month you can try out the new Overleaf v2 editor!
