New in version 1.3.0 (May 2nd, 2015)

  • Enhanced timeline updates and pagination. Timeline updates are much faster now, require less network traffic, and don't mark previous posts as read every time a feed is updated.

  • Posts opened from the "+" button in the Meanwhile feed will be able to load comments correctly much more often.
  • Added a button to cancel an attachment in the publisher.
