Installer 5
Version
: Release candidate 3-1
Released: Sunday 8th of December

After yesterdays massive rc2 release we are excited to now release rc3. This version addresses most of the issues which were reported by our beta testers yesterday.

Two weeks ago, we released release cadidate 1. See for the changelog & release notes see
Important - Installer 5 release candidate has been released for beta testing

Changelog
  1. Added paletteWillChangeToStyle: to apply palette overrides for a style before the internal style change
  2. Added migration block which fixes crashes on launch caused by an old database version (from the early betas)
  3. Added separate color for navbar background
  4. Added support to override any ATPalette color property setOverrideColor:forKeyPath:
  5. Disable the decompression error alert and just mark the source with an error (highlights source in red)
  6. Ensures that we dont check if the file has changed on the server if the source had a decompression error in the previous refresh
  7. Fixed issue where rebuildDictOfNewPackages could result in a crash due to nil object being inserted into a dictionary
  8. Fixed navbar settings on iOS 13 to match older styles
  9. Fixed some duplicate allocations in the internal palette change
  10. Fixed the verbose view navbar and text color when in light mode
  11. Fixed the verbose view text color having transparency
  12. Fixes a crash on launch if schema was not compatible
  13. Fixes TabBar badge showing incorrect update count on app launch
  14. Force a complete refresh of any source that encounters a decompression error on the previous refresh
  15. Force a full refresh if either the APT sandbox, our SourceFiles directory is missing an entry for the source being refreshed
  16. Updated ATPalette management, now production ready
  17. Fixed crash in TasksVerboseViewController if it was sent a nil string

Note
We released a hotfix for a crash during repository refresh caused by a nil string. This was released a few minutes after RC3 was pushed.

Known Bugs
  1. Lag when switching tabs (most notably when switching back to the manage tab) [Cause known, fix coming as soon as possible]
  2. When switching to search immediately after opening the app Installer crashes. [Actively working on this]

Sandboxed Version
For the users who are not jailbroken and would like to test Installer we're releasing a sandboxed version which you can sideload.
The sandboxed version has the same changes as the normal version, and everything except for installations work.
This is first time in months we've released a sandboxed version again so while we expect most of it to work just fine there could be some issues.

If you find an issue with the sandboxed version, please report them on our discord server.

Please note: Because Installer requires access outside of the sandbox, certain actions (such as trying to Install a package) will cause a crash. This is not a bug. We'll add a simulated install method for this in the future but right now we're focusing on the normal version of Installer.

If everything goes according to plan, we'll push this version to signing services soon.
