Clover to Kuroba cumulative feature log
  • Releases are signed by Adamantcheese.

  • Dropped support for API 20 (Android 4.4W) and below. Only ~10.7% of devices use this anymore. Only API 21 (Android 5.0) and above will be supported. This also let us upgrade to a newer version of OkHTTP.

  • Migrate to AndroidX and updates to a number of libraries.

  • Remove force English locale. The app is only in English now due to issues with poor, incomplete translations, and the force-locale option no longer working or able to be working as of API 17.

  • Major application architecture changes, to easily facilitate forking. See docs/release.txt as well as the build.gradle file.

  • A number of performance improvements.

  • Codestyle is provided in the project now. See .idea/codeStyles.

  • Logger should only now spit out stuff you care about, and uncaught exceptions are easier to find; also phone info is dumped, so really a crash log is more than enough for most crash issues.

  • 8Chan has been removed as it is defunct on the clearnet. 8Kun has replaced it.

  • Arisuchan has been removed as it is defunct completely as of 12/31/2019.

  • Development builds are provided by K1rakishou on his server. The internal updater was coded by me.

  • Leak Canary to find any memory leaks, only on development.

  • Plenty of layout changes. Too many to count.

Adds:

  • Filter watching
    • Swipe away filter-pinned threads and they won't come back
  • Filter master kill switch
  • Additional background refresh times
  • Page number viewing
    • Page numbers are also displayed on the catalog if you are not in bump sort order
  • Last page notifications
  • Thread save folders
  • Image opacity toggling
  • Image rotation options (90, 180, and -90 rotation)
  • A post timer to avoid preemptive captcha input, for posts, posts with images, and threads

  • All filter fields are regex filterable
  • Code tags are now highlighted with a different color. No syntax highlighting because that is a code-prettify JS function
  • Confirm before exit is always on. This is so you don't accidentally close the app when pressing the back button too much and accidentally quit the app when you didn't mean to
  • Non-relative time and post info are now based on your locale

Also from K1rakishou:

Fixes:

  • Cross board links for 4chan (due to 4chan/4channel fiasco)
  • Images sometimes showing as low res despite the hi-res version loading fully in the background
  • Reply-spoiler selection wrapping
  • Pin title updating for newly posted threads
  • The background of spoilered webms not going away
  • Spoilered links opening immediately and not unspoilering
  • Search not appearing and disappearing correctly and the keyboard not opening when wanted
  • Arrow menu not toggling correctly
  • Proper functionality for notifications in slide-mode
  • A weird 8chan parse issue for broken images
  • Failed to load image dialog appearing when image has clearly loaded, but a side image has failed
  • Exact board searches not being at the top of the list (for 8chan)
  • Archived icon not being at the beginning of the watch string, causing it to sometimes be invisible with long bookmark names
  • Save reply developer function not auto-reloading the thread
  • Split view mode, gallery view, post goto not functioning
  • Clear cache button added to developer settings, shouldn't be used by anyone on a regular basis really
  • The "save original filename" setting has been renamed to "save server filename" for clarity
  • Spaces and dashes and repeated underscores are allowed in the filename when saving
  • The status bar slowly going dark over time with certain themes
  • The click listener on album download images was set to the wrong view, should be easier to tap now to select
  • Self-replies no longer trigger the watch notification
  • Thread search pops up the keyboard when opened
  • Stickies and posts with capcodes are never filtered
  • Filters are now correct in regards to HTML characters (i.e. before to select > you would have to type the HTML representation of it, > instead of the character >; now you just need to type >)
  • The theme picker not properly rendering quote links or post details; also adds a deadlink and some greentext to better test those out
  • The theme picker now uses the regular post adapter and whatnot, which should render some nicer previews as well
  • A crash when trying to move a bookmark to the end of the list (as a result of moving the settings menu as mentioned above)
  • The maximum file size preventing posting on hardcoded boards, which don't have a max file size
  • Full rotation capability as a setting
  • Album cells displaying thumbnails in low resolution; they are now hi resolution all the time
  • Images being rescaled when their respective views rescale natively; this double rescale made images blurrier than they actually were
  • A change to cancel the downloader for images/webms that were swiped past. This should help with images/webms loading slow, likely due to a number of downloaders running in the background for content that wouldn't be visible to the user and wasn't necessary to load as they had already swiped past it
  • RTL text in filenames will now be forced to be LTR; this mimics browser behavior
  • Quote colors will no longer override PostLinkable colors
  • An architecture issue where some site settings would not correctly be reloaded by the application upon restart
  • The backcolor_secondary for the Neon theme being way too bright
  • Subject lines in card catalog cells not ellipsizing
  • A weird dot appearing in the arrow menu drawable
  • The bookmark drawer being inconsistent on a restart of the application
  • An issue where sometimes text wasn't selectable for certain posts; known Android platform issue
  • A number of small things related to 2ch.hk

  • The text selection window remaining if you tap an image after selecting text
  • The view new posts snackbar not scrolling far enough to show the new posts separator
  • The board search menu returning strange results when board code prefixes were entered
  • Closes the keyboard when certain UI elements are unfocused
  • Thread padding not being updated when you attach/detach an image in a reply input
  • (USER WAS BANNED FOR THIS POST) messages on 4chan will now show up as bolded and red instead of just bold
  • Fixes for text-only mode clashing with album-goto functionality, crashing the application
  • Checkboxes now match the current theme instead of being an ugly teal
  • Issues with posting in one thread, switching to another, and the wrong thread being watched (or other wrong-thread issues)
  • Album downloads not obeying the server/original filename setting
  • Images will no longer randomly display in low-res, despite being fully downloaded in the background

  • Popup replies text not being selectable
  • OOMs will run the garbage collector for large static images
  • A number of crashes including:
    • Crash when tapping the remove image button and the image itself
    • Crash when a thread updates while sliding it in Phone mode
    • Very large GIFs taking up too much uncompressed space, causing a RuntimeException
  • The "last" post in an initially loaded thread will now properly be the last post, allowing the jump to new posts snackbar to function correctly for those threads where you haven't read the whole thread yet
  • Gruvbox not using the correct divider color, making it invisible. Thanks to @Astridchan for the catch!
  • Text-only mode disables the gallery view button now. Text only MEANS text-only. No images, ever.
