Assets 5

Added

  • Subscriptions. File and channel pages now show a subscribe button. A new "Subscriptions" tab appears on the homepage shows the most recent content from subscribed channels.
  • LBC acquisition widget. Convert other popular cryptos into LBC via a ShapeShift integration.
  • Flow static type checking. This is a dev-only feature, but will make development faster, less error prone, and better for newcomers.

Changed

  • The first run process for new users has changed substantially. New users can now easily receive one credit.
  • The wallet area has been re-organized. Send and Receive are now on the same page. A new page, "Get Credits", explains how users can add LBRY credits to the app.
  • Significant structural changes to code organization, packaging, and building. The app now follows a typical electron folder structure. All 3 package.json files have been reduced to a single file. Redux related code was moved into it's own subfolder.
  • The macOS docking icon has been improved.
  • The prompt for an insufficient balance is much more user-friendly.
  • The credit balance displayed in the main app navigation displays two decimal places instead of one.
  • Video download error messages are now more understandable.
