GitHub Desktop now supports @-mentions, emojis and issue referencing

GitHub for the desktop now lets you mention other users and reference issues, just as you can on the Web.

It also works exactly the same on the desktop; just use the ‘@‘ symbol before names to mention friends or coworkers, and the ‘#’ to reference known issues.

Oh yeah — you can also use ‘:’ to add emoji to your commits and pull requests. Yay!

The new features are available for both OS X and Windows, but you’ll probably need to manually check for updates in the settings menu on GitHub Desktop and relaunch the app to get things rolling.
