Release: 1.0 (4) - 2017-01-25

The major change in this release is displaying posts as rich text. At last, the computer is now parsing the markup rather than you! I took the unusual tack of rendering the post HTML rather than the post Markdown text in order to ensure faithful rendering of The Official 10C Markdown, rather than risk fragmenting the dialect based on who's viewing posts in what client.

Image display is what I plan to work on next, because the timeline is looking a bit drab without them. As always, you can see what I'm up to by peeping the Issue Board.

Thanks for beta-testing Macchiato!


Changed:

  • Display rich text rather than raw Markdown.1 [#34]
  • Omit mentioning yourself when you reply to a post that mentioned you.2 [#32]

  1. Links aren't clickable yet, and images display as their ALT text.
  2. The author of the post you're replying to still gets mentioned, though, so if you reply to your own post, you'll still mention yourself.

TestFlight Release: 1.0 (3)

Changed:

  • Targets iOS 9.3 rather than iOS 10. If you haven't upgraded to 10 yet, you're in luck!

New Release: 1.0 (2) - 2017-01-16

Fixes a crash. Hopefully fixes a login issue related to percent-encoding.

Fixed:

  • iPad: Don't crash when showing post actions sheet. [#31]
  • Hopefully: Should be able to log in with + in email or password. [#29]
  • Form-urlencoding adds some special "form" sauce atop "url encoding" that I missed.

Changed:

  • iPad: Present Settings as a popover.
  • Add rudimentary app info in Settings, so you can see what version you're running.

Macchiato v1.0 (1) Is Now Available

Beta testers should be receiving an email from TestFlight shortly about a new build being available. It'll be good for 60 days, which is good, because in about 35, my second-born should actually be adding the "-born" part to their CV.

Changes

  • View Global.
  • Log in to view Home and other streams, as well as post using the + button and reply.
  • Long-press a post to pull up a menu of actions on that post.
  • Swipe left/right while composing a post to move the cursor. Use more fingers to move by bigger units (one by character, two by word, three by sentence).

Known Issues

  • A lot of features are not yet implemented.
  • Not implemented: Image viewing
  • Workaround: Long-press and select "View in WebView" from the action sheet that pops up to view the thread that way.
  • Bug: Some longer threads don't seem to fetch all comments, even after you hit the "Load Older" button.

Reporting an Issue

If you run into something, please file an issue on GitLab. This will ensure it doesn't get lost in the shuffle. Thanks!

Genesis

Macchiato should be opening up for beta testing soon. If you're interested, send your email to or, if you'd like it kept more private, use the contact form associated with this 10C site.

It ain't pretty, but it's all I've been using on my phone for Global, Home, digging into threads, and posting and replying here for a few months now.

The issue tracker lives at GitLab.
