Questions or concerns with the latest update?
– Thredd opens in an overlay instead of a little window! Significantly improves the experience of using Thredd.
– Reddit button doesn’t always redirect for some reason. Stopped depending on redirects and just used the full link.
– Re-worded and adjusted positions of some buttons to reduce or increase their importance
– Added a “Why is this post relevant?” button so people can quickly find the relevant comment or determine if a post is a link submission.
– Subreddit profile pictures were slowing down Thredd. Downloaded them in batches to significantly improve performance.
– Bumping Thredd out of beta versions to reflect the fact that major bugs have been resolved
– Thredd notification will flash for 1-2 seconds to make it slightly more noticeable without being too annoying
– Notification can be disabled from the Options page
– Added a profile picture for each subreddit. This makes the different subreddit’s personalities more visually apparent.
– Fixes related to the bug where Thredd is loading forever. See here for u/iVarun’s bug report.
– Fix #1: Stopped depending on lscache for keeping track of anonymous requester expiration (just in case lscache is not working)
– Fix #2: Added rule to flush lscache each time background.js runs to prevent localStorage filling up
– Fix #3: This is most likely dealing with the actual issue: added an expiration time to submissions in localStorage so they don’t stick around forever.
– changes to manifest.json (name, short_name, and description)
