@JoeWalsh can you cut a release tag for 1153 on GitHub? Thanks!

Something went wrong with publishing to the App Store. The update notes say "5.5.0" and mention all new features (such as iOS-app-feature-Places), but the build when opening the downloaded app it is 1132 (5.4.2) without places.

@Josve05a I just updated from the app store and got 5.5.0 with Places.

@Josve05a I just updated from the app store and got 5.5.0 with Places.

I just (after deleting the TestFlight version) downloaded the app from the (Swedish) App Store, and I didn't get that.

My therories:

  • Problem with the Swedish App Store version
  • Problem with the iOS 11 App Store
  • Some local phone cache issue

Hmmm...I restarted my phone (with the two-button-press safe restart option), and tried to re-download the app, and I got the correct app version, but before I did get the wrong version 3 times...

@Josve05a yeah, sometimes updates are pushed to app stores in waves, so updates may appear in different stores slightly delayed over the first day.
