Now the interesting part, the new features:
What's new in 0.99.8
- Fixed authentication for new users
- Removed best sort as it is no longer supported
What's new in 0.99.7
- Fixed an API breaking change from Reddit which would make the app crash on start
What's new in 0.99.6
- Fixed a bug where the app would crash when looking at a comment reply in your monitor feed (when monitoring your inbox)
- Post and comment templates were updated to read the user flairs when there are any. You will need to delete post template 2 and comment template 2 from your user config folder if you want those changes
- From this version onward, when updating the app for future versions, changes to default user config will be picked up. So if you stick to default files, you will no longer have to go manually delete files in the user config folder. Of course if you modified those files to your liking, those will not be overriden by the update.
What's new in 0.99.5
- You can now press the applications key to display a menu with all the actions you can take at any given time and their keybaord shortcuts. I do not recommend to rely on this menu for normal app use, but it's a great option to explore everything the app can do and learn their shortcuts.
- You can now view a comment or post in the context of the subreddit it was posted in. Ctrl+G goes to the item, Shift+G goes to the root post. This is useful in a lot of contexts, for instance, when reading comment replies in your messages, you can go to the post which started the thread with Shift+G or go to the comment with Ctrl+G. When looking at someone's comment history, you can go to the comment with Ctrl+G to read other comments in the thread or go to the original post with Shift+G. When reading your front page, you can look at other posts in the same sub of a post that interests you, press Ctrl+G or Shift+G and it will bring you to that subreddit.
- The cancel (pressing ESC) navigation changed. Now the applications will set way points as you use the app and pressing ESC will bring you to the last way point. Pressing ESC should make a lot more sense now and bring you back quicker when you are very deep. Now for instance, if you were on a comment and pressed R to look at another subreddit, pressing ESC will bring you back to that comment. Same if you want to do a search by pressing S, ESC will bring you back to where you were before searching.
- There is a new settings window in the main menu which allows to edit and view keyboard shortcuts as well as edit app settings. This used to only be possible by manually editing the files in UserConfig folder. For instance, you can make it so that when you look at your post history, by default it will show your saved posts. The keyboard shortcuts window also serves as some documentation as actions have a description.
- You can now cross post link posts and self posts with Ctrl+X. Self posts will credit the original sub. There is another action cross post uncredited that you can assign a keyboard shortcut too if you want.
- You can now edit comments and text posts with F2. It is not possible to edit a post title or a link post.
- You can now delete comments and posts with Delete key. This key also allows you to unsubscribe from subscriptions in the subscriptions window, remove friends from the friends list window, remove keyboard shortcuts assignments and remove monitors.
- Friends added to home screen to see your list of friends. Known issue that seems like a Reddit API bug, you cannot load more than 100 friends, so for now you will only see your top 100 friends.
- You can now switch to a user by pressing U, then typing the user name. This will bring you to their profile where you can friend them, see their overview, post and comment history.
- You can now go to a user profile by pressing Ctrl+U, this works on posts, comments and messages. This will bring you to the author's 'profile where you can friend them, see their overview, post and comment history.
- You can now save posts with Shift+S or unsave a post with the same shortcut if the post was saved already. You can see your saved posts in your post history. You have to change the sort, move down to filter and choose saved.
- Pressing Alt+Left will bring you back to the root post. This is useful when you are 6 levels of comments deep and you just want to go back to the list of posts, now you do not have to spam the left arrow 6 times.
- You can now track your inbox, subreddits, posts and comments for new items and be notified. To track, use the minus key, to see your monitor feed, press Ctrl+Minus. To toggle notification sound on/off, Shift+Minus. To enable/disable monitors, Alt+Minus. To view what is tracked, Ctrl+Shift+Minus. Read the documentation to see how this works if you are interested.
- Change post template 2 to also say what subreddit the post was posted on. This is useful when looking at R/All or looking at your or someone else's post history. If you upgrade from an older version, you will have to delete the post template 2 file in user config for this to take effect.
- Changed the sound that tells you an item has comments which should be more pleasant to the ear (thanks to Goldfingas). If you upgrade the app from an older version, you will have to delete the UserConfig\Sounds\Sound_Expandable.wav from your installation folder. The app will not automatically override it to preserve custom sounds people would have already swapped.
- Line endings are now normalized Windows style to fix line ending interpretation issues when reviewing a post, comment or message.
