It is polish time: we are back in the trenches, putting in a lot of hours and trying to get as many bugs out and as many details in. Thank you to all the users who are providing us daily feedback and bug reports. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
ENHANCED – Enhanced the auto-mark as read behavior to NOT trigger it when the user is drilling down (for a category list to a feed list to an article). “I am wandering if the auto-read function could be fine-tuned a little bit. Perhaps It should only trigger on ‘scroll to the next page’ in the feed view only, not when jumping into the article view. Get it ? This way the list of 7 articles I am looking at is marked as ‘read’ only when I scroll, not when I jump into read the articles. It’s a small modification of the current behavior”. Thank you Michal for suggesting this.
FIXED – If you select “hide read articles in a subscription view and read some articles and then scroll to the next page, then a couple of unread articles will slip through the cracks. The number of unread articles which sleep through the cracks is equal to the number of articles that where just read on the first page. Thank you Rajesh and Tim G for reporting this.
FIXED – Edito does not partition the page correctly when the user selects “hide read articles”. For some reason, space seems to be allocated to subscriptions which do not have unread articles left, resulting in portion of the page remaining white. Thank you Rajesh and Tim G for reporting this.
ENHANCED – Display list of matching subscriptions in the dashboard as you type. Thank you Michal for suggesting this.
FIXED – Cyclic loop when entering a search term which has no results in the dashboard. Thank you Michal for reporting this.
FEATURE – Ability to filter the list of subscriptions in the dashboard.
FIXED – Fixed the logout redirect issue where after logout user was redirected to the Google login page.
FEATURE – The up/down arrows work nicely and “auto-scroll” to next article in the article view. But the left-right arrows used to just jump to the next article without scrolling to the end of the current one. Thank you to Michal for suggesting this.
ENHANCED – Enabled navigation using page-up and page-down keys in cateogory and subscription pages. Thanks to Rajesh for helping troubleshoot that.
ENHANCED – Improved the caching algorithm to take advantage of the fact that Google is now tracking up to 1000 unread articles. There is still work to do in this front because from the UI level, I do not think that people care about knowing the details, so we will most likely round it to 50+.
ENHANCED – Added a 250ms delay between when the end of a scrollable article is reached in the article view and the time we trigger the jump to the next article. Trying to address muruga’s feedback regarding the sensitivity of the jump.
FIXED – Problem setting and overwriting filtering preferences. This was due to a true versus “true” issue. Thank you to Rajesh for reporting this.
FIXED – Problem scrolling through the directory on Windows. Thank you to Greg for reporting this problem.
