For example, Documenter provides a whole new kind of a tool that can mold to unify multiple workflows (like data notebooks, code documentation, or tutorials) right in the IDE. Coder provides the infrastructure for manipulating code that can mold its shape as you type. Transcript allows you to embed various widgets to transform the otherwise dull experience of a console into a live one.

The Examples engine enables example-driven development which also bridges the gap between testing and documentation effort, especially when combined with Documenter. Releaser is able to release deeply nested projects. Phlow offers an engine that shares similarities with Glamour. Completer provides moldable completion. Visualizer offers a couple of visualization engines such as Mondrian.

Is this a new version or a complete rewrite? Is it backwards compatible or completely reimagined? Is adopting the new version a seamless process or is porting required? Are frameworks like Glamour still there behind the scenes or were they replaced? etc.
