Elytra is now optimised and available for macOS Monterey. It also includes performance and usability optimisations for macOS Big Sur. You can download it directly from here or from the App Store.
This is the first release with a modern and cutting-edge foundation which focuses on reliability, stability and ease of adding new features in future releases.
If you feel generous and have a couple of minutes, please leave a review on the App Store. It makes a huge difference for me. Thank you in advance.
Along with the macOS release, a small iOS release is also available which brings the most recent fixes to the iOS app and brings the two on parity.
- New UI for the New & Rename Folder prompt
- Improved UI for Feed Info UI
- Safari Extension to add new feeds to Elytra directly from the webpage you’re browsing.
- Quick Notes support (only on macOS Monterey)
- Added a new sync method to also sync added and deleted feeds on sync
- Added a new Portrait Lock preference under miscellaneous settings
- Added support for tables in articles
- New and improved article list view. It renders twice as fast now and uses less power overall
- Added a new setting to the Feed Settings: You can now toggle full-text fetching for feeds. When you open an article from that feed, the full-text content will be automatically loaded.
- Added a “Enable Push Notifications” toggle under Preferences > General. You will only see it if Push Notifications are not already enabled on that device. For cross-device sync, it is recommended you turn this on.
- New Options for Feeds: Open Articles in the Browser. This is useful for feeds where full-text extraction fails.
- Improved loading speed for the Unread and Today feeds.
- The panel sizes (Sidebar and Articles List) are now persisted across app launches.
- New Photos Browser
- Improved handling of adding new feeds via the url scheme
- If you add multiple folder widgets, you can configure each one with a unique folder (latest macOS only).
- Improved error messages across the app. The app will now display error messages directly from the API’s error
- Added delete and info swipe actions to the search results for feeds
- Improved scrolling performance in the article reader
- New Appearance customisation UI in the article reader
- Improved visuals for the folder row if a feed is being dropped onto it
- Improved dragging states for feeds and articles
- The sidebar now maintains the folders expansion state across app launches
- Added the cmd + G (cmd + shift + G for backwards) shortcut for navigating to the next article search result
- Improved sync and timeline loading performance for users with several filters
- Fixed an issue where changing the font-size from the Preferences window to any value other than System would keep system sizing enabled
- Fixed an issue where closing the main window would prevent the window from being opened again
- Fixed an issue which caused the macOS tint color to not be properly set for all views
- Foxed an issue where the window’s size and position would not be maintained with window manager apps installed and running
- Fixed an issue where marking some articles as read failed if they were recently synced on to the device
- Fixed an issue across all platforms that could sometimes cause a crash on launch when available system memory is low
- Fixed an issue with the title view in the articles list being hidden after scrolling
- Fixed an issue when swiping back from the article reader when the bars are hidden to cause the layout to get janked
- Fixed an issue with the new sync not updating the feed’s folder structure if one already exists
- Fixed an issue that caused a crash when changing from light to dark mode and the article reader was open
- Fixed a crash that would sometimes occur when opening an article with Lists containing multiple line breaks at the beginning of the paragraph
- Fixed a bug with importing OPML Files with invalid/incorrect format
- Fixed an issue where the feed settings would not be loaded correctly on app launch
- Fixed an issue which caused Feeds only re-sync to fail which also caused background sync to fail sometimes. This could potentially cause feeds metadata to get wiped
