👟 Run Mode Options

We've unlocked more options for how cells execute while you're in Logic mode. "Cell + above", "Cell + below", & "All cells" are execution modes which can now be set as a project-wide default or triggered at the individual cell level. Check out the docs or the video below for a breakdown!

🗃️ File Uploader 2.0

Among the many things that a year+ of WFH has taught us is that home internet upload speeds are not great. We've revamped our File Uploader so that you can not only upload multiple files at once, you can do so in the background with no time limit! You can also download your files to your local computer.

📂 Persistent Files

We've upgraded Projects so that now any files you write persist from session to session (even after kernel restarts). You'll see your files added to the left side panel as you create them, along with any files you've imported with the File Uploader.
