- The Gmail add-ons framework is now available to all developers.
- A new Card service supports Gmail add-ons by defining several UI widget elements that you can use to create a Gmail add-on interface without HTML or CSS. These widgets function on both desktop and mobile. You can only use the Card service in a Gmail add-on project.
- You can now view and explicitly edit Apps Script project manifests. These files give you more direct control of project properties.
- You can now directly control the OAuth scopes that your project requests during authorization. Use this control to prevent your script project from asking for more access than it needs.
- You can now deploy a script project directly from the project manifest.
- We've updated the Publish script editor menu item to more accurately represent the various kinds of deployments a project can have, such as add-on, web app, or API executable deployments.
