    Nice update Stephen! Any plans to support library versioning? That way when you have to go back to an older file and make adjustments you're able to use the symbols, colors, etc. that were relevant for that time?

      Hey Matt- like where your head is at here. Going to add this to our feature request list for review. All of the above came from similar requests. :) I can see how this would be helpful in the given scenario so that you're not accidentally updating historical versions via an errant push on library where the same symbols are used. Hit me up at stephen[at]invisionapp.com if you have more info here. I'd be interested in finding out how frequently you end up full-on opening past versions vs finder preview for quick look, etc. Rocking feedback!

        I'm also very interested for versioning support. That's a feature of Brand.ai that I really like.

        An example, when a company goes through a brand update, a lot of the library will probably change. If a designer is working on a product feature at the same time, having to update their design midway through their process becomes a workflow challenge. It would be better to let them decide when to do that on their own terms to not pull out of the flow.

        Also, if the version is document-dependent, we'd still have artifacts of exactly what the design spec was at the time.
