A new integrated emoji picker

Outline emoji picker

The editor gained a new emoji picker this month, just type ":" and a search term to quickly find relevant emojis for your document!

It's now also possible to set a "default role" for new users that join your knowledge base. For example, new signups can now have viewer priviledges by default. You can find this setting under Settings -> Security.
