1.5.0: Dark theme, menu bar hiding, and more

@PalmerAL PalmerAL released this Oct 13, 2016 · 24 commits to master since this release

New in this release:

Dark Theme

Added by @PandawanFr

Min now has a dark theme. To enable it, go to Preferences, and choose "Enable dark mode" under "Appearance".

Min will automatically switch to the dark theme at night, so your screen is easier on your eyes.

Other Changes

  • Menu bar hiding. Previously, the menu bar was always shown on Linux and Windows, which made the window more cluttered. Now, you can press the alt key (or any key combination you choose) to hide or show the menu bar.
  • Added a menu item to save the current page.
  • When you open the task overlay and delete the current task, Min will now switch to the most recent task, rather than the first one.
  • Added a menu item to switch to full screen (by @City-busz).
  • Switched the keyboard shortcuts for closing all tabs and creating a new task. Command (or control) + n now creates a new task, and shift + command/control + n closes all tabs. This makes it harder to close all of your open tabs by mistake.
  • Switched to a better way of saving the window size (by @tensor5).
  • Upgraded to Chrome 53/Electron 1.4.3.
  • Other bug fixes.

1.4.0: Full text search, browser actions, and more

@PalmerAL PalmerAL released this Jul 21, 2016 · 73 commits to master since this release

New in this release:

Full text search

Previously, full-text search was only available for bookmarks. Starting in Min 1.4, the full text of every page is searchable. Every page you visit is automatically saved, and search results are shown in the searchbar along with other history results.

Browser actions

Min includes many keyboard shortcuts, but shortcuts are hard to discover and remember. Now, Min also includes browser actions, which let you type commands from the searchbar. Type "!", and you'll see a list of browser commands, along with !bangs if you have DuckDuckGo set as a search engine. Currently, the available actions are:

  • !settings - open settings
  • !back - go back
  • !forward - go forward
  • !screenshot - take a screenshot of the current tab
  • !clearhistory - clear all history
  • !task - switch to a task, either by number or by name. "!task 1" switches to the first task. "!task shopping" switches to a task named "shopping"
  • !newtask - creates a new task
  • !movetotask" - moves the current tab to a task

If you have a suggestion for a new action, open an issue here.

Other changes

  • Added Yandex as a search engine option.
  • Updated to Electron 1.2.7.
  • Updated to the latest version of EasyList.
