FEDORA-2015-9115 created by ryanlerch 8 years ago for Fedora 22

This updated package provides version 1.0 of the twitter client, Corebird. This update provides a range of bugfixes and enhancements, including:

  • All dialogs now use client-side decrations if the environment dictates it, otherwise they fall back to server-side decorations.
  • The compose window now allows for up to 4 pictures to be uploaded.
  • We now save additional information about the account which makes it possible for blocked users to be actually blocked, i.e. streamed tweets won't appear in your timeline anymore.
  • When (un)following someone, we now also correctly show/hide their retweets in the stream.
  • The DM page now sorts threads with unread messages first.
  • The @handle completion known from the compose window is now also available when composing Direct Messages, as well as in the account settings for the description.
  • Everything app-specific should now be hidpi ready, the only thing missing are assets loaded from Twitter directly, i.e. avatars and media.
  • Notifications should now get withdrawn whenever it makes sense, i.e. if you read a Direct Message before dismissing the notification, it should get withdrawn automatically.
  • The hover buttons moved to a right-click menu on every tweet.
  • Plurals are properly localized.
  • We now also respect muted users (even though there's no UI to mute someone)
  • A user's verification status is now also shown in the tweet info page.
  • Everything should now work when the user's @handle (aka screen_name) changes.
  • Switching to the same page (i.e. going to a profile from the profile page) now works much better, including the swipe transition as well as proper equality checking.
  • Invalid inline media (file size too big, 404, ...) should now be properly detected and reacted upon (i.e. remove the widget in the stream, add the link back).
  • Underlines in @handles are now properly displayed in the app menu (i.e. the "open account" submenu)
  • Animated gifs from Twitter are now also handled (just like other videos).
  • Tweets in timelines are now single-click activated. This unifies the behavior with all other lists in the application. Since this interferes with certain user behaviors, there's a setting to switch back to double-click activation.
  • Based on a user's protection status, we now disable (or hide) retweet buttons of tweets.
