It’s October again, for some of us this means Halloween is right ahead 🎃 And well, another thing is long overdue: Another release of OpenTodoList! Let’s check out the list of changes that made it into this release!
rpdev/opentodolist#520: Remember the last opened item
This is a really welcome usability enhancement to the app: If possible, OpenTodoList now remembers the last item that was open between restarts. This is also true if the item is e.g. a todo - in this case also the parent todo list will be opened on restart.
rpdev/opentodolist#576: Fix - return button not responsive when an editor is open
This is a litte regression that sneaked in during one of the last releases: when a notes editor was open in a todo page, it was not possible closing the page unless the editor was closed explicitly. On the other side, when the notes editor was open on the todo page, going back would close the entire page, instead of just closing the editor. Both of these issues are now thankfully gone 😊
rpdev/opentodolist#577: Use the system browser for the Dropbox login on iOS and Android
On both iOS and Android, we used to use an embedded web view to let the user sign in to Dropbox when adding an account. This - however - is actually forbidden (actually due to restrictions by Google, because Dropbox allows signing in using your Google account). So starting with this release, we now also use the system browser on these two platforms for the login.
rpdev/opentodolist#565: Properly set window icon on Wayland
On a totally different page: OpenTodoList also runs natively on Wayland/Linux. However, the window icon (and hence also the icon in the taskbar) was not correctly set and hence the app would be represented using a generic icon instead. That’s definitely something we had to fix 😉
rpdev/opentodolist#536: Fix connection to the background service in the iOS simulator
This is rather a developer thingy, but still important for us: Previously, the app would not properly work within the iOS simulator - which makes debugging on this platform not necessarily easy. We fixed this now, so from now on, testing and debugging for iOS should be way simpler!
rpdev/opentodolist#549: Fix a crash when using the back button on Android
Another crash we fix with this release: Previously when using the back button on Android, the app would close/crash completely. Now, fixed as well ☑️
rpdev/opentodolist#556: Increase icon size
This is a little usability thing - we slightly increased the sizes of the icon tool buttons, which should make using the app more comfortable, especially on systems with a higher pixel density.
rpdev/opentodolist#354: Upload to the macOS app store
On macOS, we prepared uploading the app to the App Store. We still have to give it a try, but after all, this could be the first version that is available via the app store!
rpdev/opentodolist#546: Update notarization on iOS
Another developer thing, but still necessary to implement: We updated the way the app is notarized on Apple systems. This step was required as the previous method is going to be deprecated rather soon.
