The Digital Top 50 awards or DT50 were created by Google, McKinsey and Rocket Internet to celebrate the bold and trailblazing work of European entrepreneurs. The yearly awards assess top entrepreneurial talent from five categories: B2B and B2C Start-ups and Scale-ups as well as Tech for Social Impact Companies.
We’re excited to announce that Overleaf has been nominated for the B2C scale-up category and one of our co-founders John Hammersley will be pitching the latest on Overleaf, our collaborative writing and publishing platform, at Tech Open Air (TOA) Berlin. TOA is Europe’s leading interdisciplinary technology festival and is where the DT50 winner will be announced the same day as the pitches on 21st June.

This is the fourth in a series of tips highlighting features available in Overleaf v2. If you'd like to try v2 for yourself, the beta is now open to the public at https://v2.overleaf.com.
Overleaf v2 offers an impressive collection of new and upgraded collaboration features. The collaborative editing is faster and smoother than in Overleaf v1, and it shows you where your collaborators' cursors are as they type. The new track changes mode lets you see exactly what has been changed by your collaborators, and allows you to accept or reject each individual change. You can also comment on ranges of text in your document for precise communication.

Following our announcement at the start of May that the public beta of Overleaf v2 is now open for all, we’ve been collating your early feedback and first impressions of the new platform over the past couple of weeks. As expected, this is a mix of feedback on features we’re continuing to develop for v2 (such as the rich text mode), along with some small UI/UX issues you ran into when trying out the new platform.
We’ve now released some updates to v2 to address the most common of those small issues, which were concentrated on the look and feel of the code editor within v2 (compared to the existing Overleaf and ShareLaTeX editors), and on the wording around archived/deleted projects on the dashboard.
