Hey 👋

The new release 1.9.0 is out now🥳 This version is a completion of the 1.8.0, with some corner cases handled. Before talking about this new release, let's see some highlights 👍

Highlights

2 months after the first release, and the app is still growing fast.

  • ⬇️ More than 8 700 downloads

  • 👤 More than 18 active users at anytime of the day

  • 👤 Around 350 daily users

  • 🔍 More than 3 million search requests in 2 weeks (x3 in 2 weeks)

  • 🔥 More than 74 000 mods installed using the application (x2 in 2 weeks)

  • ✨ Almost 25 000 mods updated using the application

Let's talk about the 1.9.X version

The goal of this version is to improve the previous version. Nothing really funky in this version, but a lot a small things have been made to make everyone's life easier.

First of all, you can consult logs in the application. You can go to "Settings > Logs" and see logs. This can help you understand what happened. Also, this will be easier for you to ask help ;)

One time support can now remove ads for 1 month per coffee. Just don't forget to fill your email address in your settings ! ☕ 

You can now configure the Tray folder, where every tray files should go. In the previous release, the Tray folder was guessed according to your Mods folder. However, in some cases, this was wrong. Don't forget to check your settings after the update.

Lots and lots and lots fixes have been made. Specially, the app now fully works with Mac 💻

What's next ?

Now that the core is fully working, I can spend more time on new features, like mod conflicts, ignore mod update, new providers etc.
