The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is about to be released; as such it’s a good time to show Voyer’s new version!
Note; the cleaner background and material effects, transparent header for less lost space, and a new Insta-Style Thread List (configurable; you can go back to the traditional one if you wish).
Other bug fixes are also included and a newly compiled FFMPEG for improved decoding WEBM media.
Sadly; FCU isn’t being released onto Mobile at the same time as PC, so while this build is Mobile Capable; it won’t be available to Mobile users until that Windows 10 OS update is released to those devices.
We Developers are still waiting on Microsoft to release the real, permanent decelopment packs for Fluent and Fall Creators Update (we are working with pre-release versions) but there are few changes expected. Big change will be that currently the store does not allow us to submit apps targeting FCU yet.
After this version is released, we plan to roll back many of the improvements to the available Anniversary update for Mobile users too.
Version 2.4.1 of Voyer builds on existing functionality and adds usability improvements plus a major overhaul of WEBM video handling.
GIF now play when viewing the thread or board lists.
Image only view has increased Image size and resolution for improved browsing.
Full Screen video and images! (*the ad banner goes away with donation)
Video is now pre-loading (2 video’s ahead. Beware this will increase data use!)
Vastly improved WEBM video loading and reliability.
In Board view (list of Threads) changed to load image thumbnails first, then full resolution images. (used to be just thumbnails).
Fixed issue where video was being downloaded twice! Should see improvements in speed and fewer errors.
Temp video cache increased from just that session to 7 days to save re-downloading. Stored in Application Temp for automatic cleanup by system if required.
GIF playback improved.
Full screen text view removed as it was not valuable and caused swipe issues, too
Instead of full screen text view, the list of posts now has a simpler ‘more text’ mode with a single tap anywhere on the post to expand and shrink.
Tapping on the image in the list of posts now opens in a more streamlined full screen image/video only view.
