Whew! It's been a busy past week for the Ello dev crew. I'll be brief, but here's an abridged list of our recent bugfixes and improvements. We're working hard to smooth things out, and your feedback has been incredibly helpful to guide us in the right direction. Thanks for letting us know when things aren't working as expected. As well, thanks for your patience as we make Ello great
---- Improvements ----
The username and emoji autocompleters have received a lot of love in the past week and should be working much better now. There are still a few kinks, but we'll work them out
Delete confirmations! You should now see a confirmation modal before you delete a post or comment Apologies for any content that had previously been lost to the ether.
Highlighted text while editing a post is now easier to see. We switched to a more contrasted highlight color in the Omnibar
The signup process has improved drastically, and is still being worked on. This will help people sign up with fewer problems
We've improved the Block & NSFW features in subtle ways.
As always, there's been a ton of work going on behind the scenes to keep up with demand, access and stability.
---- Fixes ----
Editing a post with an image wasn't working for a lot of people last week. This should be good now
Link styling in a bulleted list now displays properly
You should no longer receive a notification if you @ mention yourself in a post or comment.
Putting an emoji in your bio shouldn't cause problems anymore
The Noise layout would sometimes wrap the last column in a funky way. This shouldn't happen anymore either.
Our main font (Atlas Typewriter) was missing for some people last week. This should be cleared up now.
Banned users no longer show up in the @ username autocompleter
Commenting on a post had a bunch of funky stuff going on, especially on mobile. This should be working quite a bit better now
We fixed several weird Omnibar issues that shall go unnamed
Thanks and love,
