Linchpin Intranet Suite is now available in the brand new version 2.0. This new version of the suite brings you various new features, improvements and better options for additional use cases.
There is a brand new microblog editor, making the news even more personalized and visually appealing than before. Also, Linchpin Mobile now gives you several branding possibilities. And don’t forget: Linchpin Suite is now fully compatible with Confluence 7!
In this article we’ll give you an overview of what’s new.
