Obsidian is a powerful note-taking app that can be used to make knowledge graphs while still offering Notion-like features.
We already had a detailed article on it before the 1.0 update:
The release of Obsidian 1.0 marks a crucial step in the development of the app for its desktop and mobile experience.
Let's take a look at the new features on offer for desktops.
🆕 Obsidian 1.0: What's New?
The 1.0 release has added a bunch of new features, major visual changes, and bug fixes, some of the highlights include:
- Revamped UI
- New Appearance Settings
- Tabs With Tab Stacking
- Overhauled Theme Gallery
- Various Bug Fixes
🎨 User Interface Makeover
The user interface has received an extensive makeover, which has resulted in a more intuitive and robust user experience.
In addition to that, Obsidian now has a dedicated section for appearance settings. It contains settings to toggle options for showing the inline title, tab title bar, changing accent color, and more.
Tabs With Tab Stacking
You can now open multiple tabs in Obsidian and use hotkeys to help you multitask throughout a busy day.
An added bonus, even if you quit Obsidian, it will remember which tabs you had opened and your active state in those tabs.
Tabs can also be grouped to form a stack and switched between, resulting in a decluttered workspace.
🛠️ Other Changes
Other changes worth mentioning include:
- Ability to change the zoom level.
- Improved Obsidian sync.
- Memory leak fix.
- Fold Commands for folding lines.
