Releases

Release notes for both the iOS and Android version of the app. Thank you to everyone reporting bugs and for providing me with feature requests. If there is anything get in touch with me.

Version 2020.4.1, released 2020-06-26

Platform:
  • iOS

24 hours later and yet another update! This one includes bug fixes for image uploads failing. So sorry for that 😔

In addition I tweaked:

  • Pull to refresh no longer causes multiple calls to the Micro.blog service.
  • Links open as they used to instead of a modal. So now you can back swipe like a champion!
  • Some other last minute tweaks… because I do that.

And if you’re wondering what I released 24 hours ago in the actual 2020.4 update you can read the release notes here.

Thank you all for your feedback ❤️

Version 2020.4, released 2020-06-25

Platforms:
  • iOS
  • Android

I'm back with another update for you all. It’s taken a bit longer than I wanted… life threw some random curve balls!

So, let’s get to it:

  • You can now remove your posts so they no longer show in the timeline. Made a weird reply? Just remove it and start again. It’s a right swipe away.
  • Add the Discover “Tagmoji” when composing your post. This means it will get added to the correct Discover More section on Micro.blog. Just tap the “#” icon in the post screen.
  • Tweaked the Appearance section, which now works instantly! BOOM. KAAPOW! Have a play and find your favourite combination.
  • Added a font size setting so you can refine your preferred font size for the timeline, reply and post screens, on top of the system settings. Need 60 points of font size…? Do it!
  • Added a Micro.blog status check, which will alert you if the service is down or not. It’ll also offer to show you the status page on the “More” screen.
  • Fixes an issue when you’re following over 1,000 followers and your reply pane became… S… L… O… W. No more!
  • Fixed an issue with account switching.
  • Some wording tweaks and a sprinkle of emoji.
  • Fix a handful of wonderful bugs!
  • Overall UI tweaks and fixes here and there.

That's it for now and no doubt I forgot a few things.

Happy blogging and see you soon with another update ❤️✌️

Note for iOS users: Currently image uploading is a bit broken and won’t work 🤬. An update will be out soon with a fix.

Version 2020.3, released 2020-04-13

Platforms:
  • iOS
  • Android

Here are the release notes for this release. There are many little tweaks here and there and I doubt I have them all here.

  • Posting now allows you to add categories to your posts, using the toolbar.
  • Replying now allows you to view the item you’re replying to, just tap on the “replying to” text.
  • In replies, you can now @-mention someone and it will auto-suggest anyone in your following list.
  • Your profile now displays your Pins that you have earned on Micro.blog.
  • Along with the pins the profile screens have been updated for easier navigation with clearer buttons and actions.
  • The timeline now attempts to stay nicely on your last post, allowing new posts to show without loosing your spot. Also includes a “new” indicator.
  • Feed sync has greatly been improved and should work faster, and also update past posts much better.
  • Nitpicky settings, found in the “More” screen, for your pleasure - Show character count when typing, display full names and so much more like the image proxy for when you need to save a bit data.
  • An overhaul of the “More” screen.
  • The reply and post screens have been overhauled to work much better.
  • Fixes issues with account switching.
  • Many under-the-hood UI tweaks, for example tweaked swipe actions.
  • And so much more

Thank you so very much to everyone using Gluon and your continued feedback and suggestions! ❤️✌️

Version 2020.2, released 2020-02-19

Platform:
  • Android

Hello dear Android users,

This update is for you and brings the app up to date with what the iOS version is running.

Here is a quick overview of what has changed and, hopefully, fixed:

  • Adds draft support for posts. Now you can start a new post and finish later. Find drafts in the “More” screen under “Posting”->”Drafts”.
  • Mute filter. Mute unwanted words or a user if you need to. You can find it in the “More” screen.
  • New swipe right action for a timeline item allowing you to add it to favourites, reply and others.
  • Report a user - you can now report a user to Micro.blog.
  • Profile actions - on any user profile you can now pull up more actions by pressing on the top right button in the navigation bar.
  • Hopefully fixed a crashing bug when you typed too fast on the “new post” screen.
  • Some other tweaks and fixes that affect the general performance of the app.
  • Adds the February challenge to the Discover screen; take those pictures.
  • Fixes a few crashing issues with when tapping a URL in a timeline item.
  • Better handling of your timeline position when new items are loading when you have scrolled down.

As always, thank you for your feedback. If you’d like to leave a review in the Play Store I would greatly appreciate it.
