@S-Coyle S-Coyle released this Sep 26, 2019 · 14 commits to dev since this release

Features in this release:

  • Fetch websites using NRS-URLs and XOR-URLs, browsing back and forth in their version history seeing the websites in each of their versions
  • If you try to fetch a website using an NRS name which hasn't yet been registered, you will be offered the chance to create and register that NRS name with your account! For those who know how current Internet DNS registration works this is interesting to experience ;)
  • If you are visiting a website you own, you can edit it right there in the Browser by selecting a local folder (only a folder can be selected in this version) where you want to upload the new website files from. The browser will take care of uploading it and republishing it in your NRS name and URL.
  • Websites can alternatively be uploaded and published on an NRS name using the SAFE CLI, once that's published they can be fetched either with the CLI or with the SAFE Browser (although note it's not possible yet to edit a website using the Browser which was uploaded with the CLI, neither the other way around, a limitation we will be working on soon in relation to supporting sharing permissions among apps).

Windows release has now also been added!
