šŸ”§ Updates & Improvements.

  • Update to Chromium 89.0.4389.128.
  • Update dependencies.
  • Tidy up the context menu by grouping link open actions together.
  • If you had apps in the sidebar and then scrolled the active highlight would float in space. We nailed the highlight down so it sticks with the app.
  • Performance improvements to the updater.
  • Performance improvements from app fuzzing.
  • Improve the UI around automatically fetching the Gmail inbox type.
  • Remove a bunch of legacy code that's no longer used, helping to reduce our install size.

šŸ› Fixes.

  • When sleep disk serialization is enabled, Evernote could be slow to start. Add a fix for this.
  • After adding an app and switching away from it, the app would always go to sleep immediately. Don't do this.
  • Google sometimes served up the Google Docs favicon for Sheets, Slides & Forms. Kind of annoying if you're trying to see what's open, so we added an exception for those sites and stuck the right icon in.
  • On Linux (Ubuntu in-particular) the tray icon would flash when focusing Wavebox windows. This isn't completely unavoidable, but we've reduced the amount that it flashes a lot!
  • UI fixes when a light OS theme is used, but a dark Wavebox theme.
  • Fix an issue where the link opener would fail on a sleeping tab.
  • Fix an issue where the outlook account icon would always come from the primary outlook account.
