May 2022 – 3 Release

The May release of Elytra focuses on clearing up old code and files from Elytra’s codebase. A lot is changing under the hood, but very little is changing visually in the app.

This is to prime the codebase for WWDC 2022 which will bring in new OS versions and features to the app.

This will be the final release to support iOS 14. This will also be the final release with new features until the next release shipping with iOS 16 support.

As WWDC approaches, we’ll be seeing a lot of articles coming from the press surrounding the event. RSS feeds are a great way to follow this news as it happens.

So to get you setup, first 1000 users can get their first three months at a discounted price using the code: EYTWWDC22 for the monthly subscription, and EYYWWDC22 for the yearly subscription.

These codes will be valid till the 12th of June, 2022, 12:00AM GMT.

  • Fixed a crash when opening the filters view.

  • Fixed a crashing bug that would sometimes occur when marking over a hundred articles as read.

  • Fixed a crashing bug that would occur when no items are pending to be marked as read.
