Release notes for Beta Release 2
New/changed in this build:
This update includes support for starring and unstarring posts. Starring is a way to mark a post. The meaning is up to the end-user. It could mean it's a favorite post of yours, or you want to reply to it later, or it contains a link you want to view later. To star a post, click/tap the Add Star button on the bottom app bar or Detailed Post View. Once you have starred a post, the button text will change to Remove Star.
You can view your list of starred posts by choosing Add Stream/My Starred Posts from the bottom app bar.
This build includes support for native App.net reposting. Native reposting is a way to repost a post without adding any comments. So, the Repost button now has this behavior. If you click/tap the Repost button, it will immediately be reposted to App.net. The button text will then change to Un-Repost, which you can use if you decide you want to remove the repost.
If you want to repost something and add comments (which was the previous behavior of the Repost button), use the new Comment button.
Clicking/tapping a username anywhere in the app now takes you to the user's profile page. This change was made so the behavior is consistent throughout the app. The previous behavior in some places was to open a new stream with that user's posts. Now, to add the user's stream to the main screen, you can use the button on the profile page, or the button in the Detailed Post View window.
- If you pause a stream for a long time, and then unpause it, if more than 200 posts were posted in the interim, there will be a gap in the stream. This issue will be fixed soon. Until then, you can work around this issue by removing and then re-adding the stream, or closing and re-opening the app.
- The followers/following screen works at any resolution greater than 1024x768. It is currently cutting off the right side at that resolution.
- There are some issues with the snapped view. They will be addressed soon.
