What’s New?

Coda was highlighted in ProductHunt‘s Daily Digest today.  So, I thought we’d take a look at what other news and information is out there regarding Coda.

Existing Coda users received an email update in late December with the subject line “New features, and a gift.”  The gift was a limited number of beta invites to allow existing users to explore Coda and it’s collaboration features with their team.  The new features highlighted included: improved copying and pasting with automatic column format assumptions, table lookup column format and formula, and automatic revision history.  Current Coda members can view the release updates from the Gallery.
