Not a major feature here, but arguably one of the most important changes, with a lot of source text fixes. And my favorite part is that we now display the קמץ קטן (shown as a קמץ with a longer stem):

kamatz-katan

Also, check out the much improved layout for אז ישיר, just in time for this week's reading:

If you see any problems with the text (or anything else, for that matter), please report by creating an issue!

And beyond my thanks for those that did create the issues that were addressed in this release, a special יישר כחך to @etayluz for driving these changes and responding for feedback. 🎉

Here's some exciting news: now you can bookmark or link directly to specific places in the tikkun!

Some examples:

You can also just navigate using the normal picker, and the URL will change to something you can bookmark!

🎉 Special thanks to @pisomojadogrande for getting this started and implementing the ability to jump to any Torah reference!

Helpful for those late-night study sessions, dark mode is now introduced and enabled based on your system's setting.

Actually, it's been available for several months, but sort of hidden by a double-tap gesture. I was experimenting with it during that time, and I found it to be useful and not distracting. At this time, I've made the decision to not add any user interface elements to be able to change it (other than by changing your system's setting).

Feedback on this or any other feature is always welcome. Take a gander:

You can now jump to special readings for chagim and more. You can search for them too, just like for the regular Torah portions.

Now you can easily jump to upcoming parashot in the main navigation area. We highlight 3 upcoming Torah readings (only the Torah portions, not special readings, yet) along with the date of the reading.

🎉 Thanks so much to @b3u for suggesting the feature and for sharing feedback!

🎉 Additional thanks to @ezrag26 for fixing some layout issues to give a nice clean look.

See for yourselves:

As Purim 5780 approaches, I'm happy to finally announce the long-awaited arrival of megilat Esther!

You can find it by browsing or by searching in the parsha picker area, just like finding the rest of the parshiyot.

In addition, you'll now see a slight visual cue when there is a ktiv/kri difference (like for the word ממוכן in this image):

ktiv-kri

חג פורים שמח!

Some markers for where aliyot started were in the wrong place, so those are now fixed.

Also, you'll notice that the white background isn't quite as white, and the black text isn't quite as black. This reduced contrast should improve reading comfort, as it's not as harsh.

There were some occasions in which words would be missing, especially on the chumash side (more detail in #21, #40, and #41). Those are fixed with this release.

Jumping to a specific parsha is now much easier.

The list of parshiyot is now grouped in columns by each sefer (on desktop), which improves the ability to scan for the parsha of choice.

There's also a search bar that makes it really easy to find the right parsha with just a few keystrokes – it supports fuzzy search, which means you only need to get some letters in the right order, and you'll probably find what you're looking for with just a few letters. You can even search in Hebrew with the same fuzziness! Check it out:

We've also added some analytics tracking to help understand how readers use tikkun.io. This will help us know how to improve the app in the future.

Clicking on a parsha now jumps the start of the parsha to the middle of the window, instead of [possibly] the start of the parsha being off-screen.

Additionally, the start of each parsha is now marked with the actual parsha name, instead of just "ראשון".
