RC 10-2 is now available for our beta testers on Discord.

Most important changes

  1. This release fixes transparency issues on iOS 12 and lower
  2. This release fixes an issue where switching to dark/light mode would require relaunching the application to take effect

Full changelog:

  1. Enable transparency by default
  2. Fixed an issue where GetButtonCells would not respect "Replace Maintainer Name With Source Name" setting
  3. Fixed an issue where transparent Nav/Tab bars would not properly display in darkmode for users on iOS 10, 11, 12
  4. Fixed palette changes requiring relaunch to fully apply
  5. Palette changes are now guaranteed to apply after changing the setting, this is slightly less optimal than the previous technique because it requires additional additional resource usage when switching views. this should be considered a temporary fix to the issue until the underlying cause is found
  6. Refactored and centralized get button content update code

Known bugs:
When switching from darkmode to light mode, the changes may not be reflected until the app is closed and reopened. Status: Fixed
