A warm welcome to all the new Public Beta Testers. 

Now that the cheesy stuff is out of the way, let’s get to the meat of this release.

What’s new

  • Added a “Open in browser” button to the Article interface.
  • Account Deactivation
  • Implemented Accent colour
  • Recommendations interface 

Improvements

  • Improves the tinting of the refresh control for dark interfaces or after switching the theme.
  • Improved the kerning for the System font for the Article’s title.
  • Vastly improved GIF performance and memory consumption thanks to the FLAnimatedImage library. 
  • Fetching an favicon across all the available images (opengraph, apple-touch-icon and the favicon itself) based on weights. Apple-touch-icon is given a higher preference over the favicon now.
  • When adding a new feed from the app, typing in http/s is now optional. 
  • When a feed has multiple endpoints, the list now uses head truncation so you don’t accidentally add the comments feed. 

Fixes

  • Fixed adding feeds from the share extension.
  • Fixed the position of the popover (iPads) for the long tap interaction on feeds and folders.
  • Added a default handler for the browser scheme when one isn’t selected.
  • Fixed an issue where all buttons would remain in the disabled state if the cancel button in the Purchase interface was tapped during first run.
  • Searching within an article should now work as expected. There is a known issue on iPads where the highlight doesn’t align with the characters you’re searching for. 
    Fixed a rare crash that would occur when dismissing the Unread interface while a page was loading.

Notes

  • Version: 1.0.0
  • Build 102.
  • Pipe: PBeta-01
