Image Placeholder Dimensions

Empty image components now, by default, display their dimensions without the need for supporting documentation or digging into the inspector panel. Placeholder text responds to font settings available in the inspector and toolbar.

Review URL Shortener

When sharing review links, especially when there are a large number of activated states,  the URLs can be especially lengthy. The option to shorten these URLs to a much more manageable size is available from the Get Review URL option.

Merge States

The states panel now contains the additional option to merge all local states on a design. This will take all exact duplicate states, those with the exact same name and values, and combine them. All components that use these states will be changed to point to the surviving single state.

Topic Pin Labels

Developers and above can now define custom labels for each topic pin colors used in review. This allows for consistency without relying on either outside references or memory. Topic pin labels can be defined from the project inspector panel.
