What's New

CRITICAL UPDATE: This version fixes several major bugs in the previous release that made the app unusable for some people:

- Fixed a bug that caused registered users to be logged out of their accounts on update.
- The article view would sometimes lock up while reading, particularly offline.
- On occasion, the app would show "Connection Offline" and block cached content by mistake.

Additional fixes in this version:

- Longform would not restore the previously opened article if killed due to low memory while in the background.
- Improved scrolling performance across all list views.
- When launching the app while offline, the in-app Settings button would disappear.
- Article images would often blink quickly when switching tabs.
