Release notes

SDK 1.10 (March 13, 2018)

This is one more irregular hotfix release, to further improve slow app startup times.

SDK 1.9 (January 18, 2018)

This is the final irregular hotfix release to include the fix from the underlying GNOME runtime for slow app startup times. Read more on Alex Larsson’s blog.

SDK 1.8 (January 13, 2018)

This is a security update, with no other changes except the underlying GNOME runtime. It includes a mitigation for the MELTDOWN and SPECTRE vulnerabilities in WebKit.

SDK 1.7 (November 17, 2017)

  • This is another irregular hotfix release to fix a problem with spelling correction in searches, which made it impossible to search for uncommon words within apps.

SDK 1.6 (November 2, 2017)

  • This is another irregular hotfix release to fix a crash.
  • This release is for x86_64 only. We resolved our technical difficulties blocking an ARM release and have released ARM runtimes as well.
  • Runtime: added a custom-built GTK with a fix for GNOME bug #789215 pending a fix in the GNOME runtime.

SDK 1.5 (October 10, 2017)

  • Modular framework: Fixed a crash that would sometimes happen when clicking on a video.
  • Modular framework: Bug fixed whereby some apps with videos might lock up when navigating to other pages.
  • Modular framework: Bug fixed whereby the overflow menu of Arrangement.SideBySide would not load all the items it was supposed to have.
  • Modular framework: Bug fixed whereby filters in the sub-filter slot of Filter modules would not propagate their changes up to the parent filters.
  • Modular framework: The width of Card.List is now independent of the length of the synopsis of the content displayed within. This fixes bugs where cards would have staggered sizes.
  • Modular framework: Cards now have a no_thumbnail modifier style class (e.g., .CardDefault__no_thumbnail to indicate when there is no thumbnail image present.)
  • Modular framework: Altered preset A so that cards in sets will show a thumbnail image if one is present.

SDK 1.4 (September 27, 2017)

  • This is another irregular hotfix release, since there were some problems that made videos unplayable on some machines.
  • Work around a bug in the GNOME runtime that caused GStreamer plugins to crash on some machines, which made audio and video unplayable. Will be fixed in GNOME 3.26.
  • Intel only: Include a copy of libvpx that is properly optimized for x86_64. This should greatly increase the performance of video playback using VP8 and VP9 codecs. Will be fixed in GNOME 3.26.
  • ARM only: Include a GTK capable of using EGL instead of GLX.

SDK 1.3 (September 7, 2017)

  • No changes except for updating fonts and the underlying GNOME runtime.

SDK 1.2 (August 4, 2017)

  • Fixed some bugs around upgrading apps via flatpak.
  • Modular framework: fixed a crash that occurred when clicking on an internal link in a Wikipedia article.
  • Modular framework: fixed some spurious search results that pointed to images inside blog posts.
  • Modular framework: fixed a problem where an app without any content available would crash instead of downloading new content.
  • Modular framework: improved the speed with which article cards loaded.
  • Runtime: Added some fonts that were missing from the original release.

SDK 1.1 (July 17, 2017)

  • This is an irregular hotfix release — let’s chalk it up to growing pains.
  • ekncontent: Made it possible to handle more than one subscription.
  • basin: Fixed a crash that made the basin developer tool unusable.

SDK 1.0 (July 3, 2017)
