7.0.2 Bug Fix Release

October 12, 2020

The 7.0.2 release is a bug fix release for a couple of urgent issues that appeared after the 7.0.0 release.


  • Threads should no longer show duplicate posts
  • Opening multiple tabs works and threads load
  • Random crash when showing changelog on first launch after update

I’m not totally sure of the technical reasons for the first issue, but the fix was to batch multiple database calls into one call. It made thread loading a bit more efficient and fixed the duplicate post issue.

This release also fixes an issue with 7.0.0 and 7.0.1 tabs would eventually stop loading if you opened enough of them. The cause of this bug was another database issue. I moved the initialization code to a better spot where it would get called at the right time. It should fix that specific issue of tabs not loading. Hopefully that is the only fix needed.

Finally, I fixed a very rare bug that was causing a crash when the changelog was shown. From what I can tell, it’s a problem with how DialogFragment shows itself. The fix was to override the show() method and modify it to prevent the crash.
