v1.5.2 is available:

github.com/skyjake/lagrange/re

This patch contains various small tweaks:
- fixed importing certs via Ctrl/Cmd+V
- workaround for decomposited Unicode characters
- StartupWMClass in .desktop file
- recognize a couple new custom link icons
- more Smol Emoji

I like this part of debugging where I get to listen to @konpeito for an extended period of time to see whether will start overheating my phone CPU. 馃幍馃帶

Resource update for v1.5:

github.com/skyjake/lagrange/re

This patch has updated UI translations and a couple of new Smol Emoji glyphs.

v1.5 is now available with several UI improvements.

gmi.skyjake.fi/gemlog/2021-05_
gemini://skyjake.fi/gemlog/202

- improved identity management
- multi-line text input
- query response length indicator
- animated sidebars and dialogs
- custom fallback font
- Gempub navigation

The weekly patch is out:

github.com/skyjake/lagrange/re

Mostly addressing regressions caused by the introduction of split view mode. For example, on first run, the UI color palette was not initialized so everything was black! Dark mode is cool but that's a little too much. 馃槑

If anyone wants to test multiline text input on iOS, there's a new TestFlight build available: 1.4 (7).

The iOS keyboard is so fiddly that I've set the sw keyboard "return" key to insert a line break by default instead of sending the request. This may still change if I figure out how to modify the keyboard.

Other updates include an improved Settings view and of course split view (for iPad).

A new patch is available:

github.com/skyjake/lagrange/re

Bug fixes:
- UI glitches when closing all tabs in left split
- active tab no longer active after unsplitting
- tab pinning indicator
- sidebars becoming unresponsive
- Preferences > Keys scrollbar not shown
- Gopher: monospace font for visited links

It's patch time again:

github.com/skyjake/lagrange/re

In addition to an updated French translation and allowing `*.tld` certificates, there are a few bug fixes:

- audio player doesn't play when there are parameters in the MIME type
- potential crash after a redirect
- issues with rapid network requests (e.g., accessing a local server)
- minor stability improvements

A little survey: if you鈥檙e on X11 or Wayland, is the default UI scaling reasonable in your opinion? (v1.3.2 or later)

Released a small v1.3 patch yesterday:

github.com/skyjake/lagrange/re

- added UI languages (work in progress): French, German
- added environment variable LAGRANGE_OVERRIDE_DPI (see Help)
- back/forward buttons disabled when appropriate
- bug fixes: errors handling IPv6 addresses; crash during launch or when closing a tab

A few more semi-urgent fixes for v1.3:

github.com/skyjake/lagrange/re

Bug fixes:
- crash after upgrading from v1.2
- pixel ratio and display DPI were being conflated
- sidebar width changes when switching displays
- using Tab in keybindings
- bookmarking feed entries
- UI string updates
- custom Emoji link label trimming
- max window size limited by first display (on Windows)

The Flathub build of Lagrange now additionally includes a version for 32-bit ARM, which means you can install it on Raspberry Pi running a 32-bit OS.

Runs great on my Raspberry Pi 400.

v1.3.1 is out with two new UI languages and some cleanup.

github.com/skyjake/lagrange/re

New/updated:
- Serbian and Interlingue as UI languages
- setting for bold links
- new version of the default Nunito font

Bug fixes:
- crash during word wrapping
- keybindings conflict with home row navigation
- broken kerning, various other artifacts in text rendering

Overview of v1.3 (gemlog post)

gmi.skyjake.fi/gemlog/2021-04_

Version 1.3 has wide-ranging improvements that touch on all facets of the application. Now I regret calling v1.2 a "Big One" because this release eclipses it quite easily. 馃槃

The next release of arrives as March draws to a close:

github.com/skyjake/lagrange/re

There's lots to unpack here: UI localization, LibreTranslate integration, collapsing preformatted blocks, alt text, trust via CAs, theme adjustments, bold link appearance with custom icons, touch screen support, runtime UI rescaling, word/paragraph selection, unread feed entry counter, basic command line use, and several UI improvements.

If you'd like to help translate to new languages, please visit the recently opened Weblate site: weblate.skyjake.fi/projects/la

Contact me if you want to contribute translations. (By default, the site is suggest-only.)

First ten days of TestFlight

gmi.skyjake.fi/gemlog/2021-03_ (gemlog post)

Development has been pretty active but I'm still undecided about the phone UI. Writing a universal app remains a challenge. This has been a nice way to test 1.3 features for the desktop, though.

Trying out LibreTranslate in . It鈥檚 still a bit hit-and-miss, and I鈥檓 not sure how well the self-hosted instance will hold up, but it does work. Coming up in v1.3!
