Release 20200117

Chat This is a bug-fix-and-small-UI-improvements kind-of release. There are some important fixes for users of the duplicate tracks rules, and as an experiment I’ve moved in-app chat into the main app.

In-app chat

As an experiment I’ve moved a chat widget into the main app (before it was just on the setup page). When I’m running office hours you can chat to me (Dan!) live - the rest of the time there’s an option to send an email.

I thought this would be a good way of gathering more feedback about how people use bliss.

The chat window

New inbox improvements

The beta for the “New Inbox” continues - we’ve received lots of good feedback, and so in this release:

  • No more horizontal scrolling; problems with lots of alternative fixes are now a collapsible panel:

"Show more" for longer lists of responses in the Inbox

  • Don’t show the old Inbox when the New Inbox is enabled.
  • Make sure Total fixes updates as categories are chosen.
  • The Fix all button has been renamed to make it clearer clicking it doesn’t immediately fix anything.

More improvements

Other stuff includes:

  • The macOS version now ships with Java 11 and is fully notarized.
  • Don’t allow double clicks on Apply rules.
  • Add a rule is now clickable on narrow screens on the setup page, when rules are already added.
  • Make sure the setup page looks nice under 1024x width screen.
  • Show a better message when a renewal licence is installed without an existing licence.
  • Fixed LinearSeqLike duplicates problem.
  • Fixed provide URL/upload file features.
  • When assessing correctness for names that are wholly punctuation (e.g. Billie Eilish’s !!!!!!!) never ignore the punctuation.
