NetNewsWire 5.0 for iOS: New Public TestFlight (Build 38) - Final Candidate

If you haven’t signed up for testing, see this page for instructions.

This is a final candidate release. We have no bugs left. 🎂

We’re looking for show-stoppers — for bugs so bad that we have to fix them and do another final candidate release.

We hope there aren’t any — but, way more importantly, we hope that if there are some, your testing will find it and you’ll let us know. 🍕

Changes since the last build on Feb. 12:

  • Fixed a crashing bug that could happen when the app is updating the feed selection in the Feeds list.
  • Fixed bug where favicons and feed icons wouldn’t try downloading again after a network failure.
  • Timeline: fixed bug where go-to-feed wouldn’t work when feed was hidden due to Unread Only filter.
  • Article view: fixed bug where there could be a super-brief flash of no content when going to next unread.
  • Article view: stop media actions on going to the next article.
  • Article view: fixed bug where the current article could disappear if you opened it while refreshing.
  • Article view: fixed bug on iPad where, in three-pane mode, the article view might just not show an article sometimes.
  • Settings: added explanation to fullscreen Article view preference.
