First draft of "What's new":

  • ShareAFact card design improvements
  • Detect network connectivity in case of page load error
  • Prevent IP edits when user is logged in
  • Prevent action bar from reverting to black on new page load if lead image is available
  • Fix issue with moving the first paragraph in some articles
  • Display local article name in 'Read in other languages' list
  • Reuse the same WebView for faster article navigation
  • Make enter key submit request when the user is filling in a captcha
  • Several crash fixes

@bearND Here's some suggested improvements to it, to remove language that users might not be familiar with:

  • Minor design improvements to the enhanced sharing feature
  • Fixed a bug which caused the app to sometimes make edits logged out even though you were logged in
  • Fixed a bug where server problems would incorrectly display as network connection problems
  • Improve action bar fade transition
  • Fixed a rare display issue with the first paragraph in articles
  • Display local article name in 'Read in other languages' list
  • Reuse the same web view for faster article navigation
  • Make enter key submit request when the user is filling in a captcha
  • Several crash fixes

@Deskana The text is too long. We need to keep it <= 500 characters to be able to submit it to the store.

@bearND This should be under the limit:

  • Minor design tweaks to enhanced sharing feature
  • Fixed a bug which caused the app to sometimes make edits logged out even if you are logged in
  • Fixed a bug where server problems would incorrectly display as network connection problems
  • Improved action bar fade transition
  • Fixed a rare display issue with the first paragraph in articles
  • Improved 'Read in other languages' list
  • Reuse the same web view for faster article navigation
  • Made enter key submit captchas
  • Fixed several crashes

Great! Thank you. After adding some bullet point chars we've got space for 3 more chars. ;)

bearND moved this task from QA Signoff to Done on the Mobile-App-Sprint-56-Android board.

Just increased staged roll out to 100%.
