Try out Overleaf v2
The Overleaf Team!

Since Overleaf joined forces with ShareLaTeX last year, our goal has been to create an online editor that outshines both ShareLaTeX and Overleaf. One that is simple to get started with for beginners, has powerful collaboration features for teams, and that seamlessly integrates with the other tools and publishers you work with.

We’ve come a long way since we started last July, and there’s still a lot of work to do, but we’re excited to announce that as of this month you can try out the new Overleaf v2 editor!

Happy Birthday! 5 Years of Docker at Overleaf
By John Lees-Miller

This week is Docker’s 5th birthday, so we thought we’d mark the occasion with a rundown of how we’ve been using this great technology at Overleaf. Overleaf also celebrated its 5th birthday at the start of this year, and we’ve been using Docker since its very early days.
