Hello everyone, Let me introduce the key feature updates of v1.3.x.

Dark Mode

How to enable

If you are a Windows or Linux user, you will need to manually switch the app appearance in Preferences - Advanced Settings - Appearance.

Automatically check for updates

Motrix is built using electron-builder, and the auto-update feature is also based on the functionality provided by electron-builder, so if Winodws and Linux users want to use the auto-update feature, install Motrix with NSIS and AppImage.

Thanks to Yi-Frank for contributing to the feature of automatically checking for updates when the app starts.

You can enable automatic check for update settings based on whether you meet the above requirements, Preferences — Basic — Auto Check Update
