Slack 1.0.5 (Antennas to Heaven)
- You can now customize where notifications appear. Put them anywhere that your heart desires, as long as your heart desires monitor screen corners (and whose doesn’t?)
- In Windows 8 and above, we’ve added the ability to learn new spell-check words, for all your non-dictionaritorial needs.
Other Cool Stuff
- Fixed: an issue where certain Unicode characters were garbled in notifications.
- Fixed: Users can now copy images straight from the context menu.
- Fixed: Scraped out the crusty black gunk when the app window loads. It was gross in there. We don’t want to talk about it.
- Fixed: Clever installer improvements mean that machines with Software Restriction Policies restricting installation to LocalAppData can now run Slack, happily.
Slack 1.0.4 (The Myth of Sisyphus)
- Fix a CPU usage issue on Windows 7 in certain circumstances where processes were being needlessly created and destroyed, in true Sisyphean fashion.
- Fix unread message badges, which were disappearing despite the existence of unread messages.
- Remove the "Inspect Element" context menu item, to maintain an air of propriety.
Slack 1.0.3 (Around The World)
Disable Hardware Acceleration
We've added a new preference that will disable hardware-dependent features and fall back to safer (but less pretty) defaults:
Use this if you experience:
- Black or white boxes around notifications
- Horrifyingly distorted message text
- Spell-check now Automagically detects the language being typed, rather than using the one implied by the keyboard layout.
- Allow users to back up if they get stuck during login. No one likes a dead-end.
- We no longer trust the sanity of users' environment variables, and instead try to use our own folders for everything. This should fix a number of installation issues.
- We now unpack native modules on install, which should cause AV vendors to give us less problems (especially WebRoot, who didn't care for that at all).
- Delightful Slack loading messages have returned. Because delight is important.
- Fixes for Swedish and other keyboards which use AltGr, to prevent inadvertent zooming.
- Performance improvements that should make the app should feel a bit snappier.
- Support for per-monitor DPI on Windows 8.1 (i.e. Retina display laptop connected to non-Retina display).
- Workaround or provide better error messages for more early installation cases.
- Fix an issue where users' installed copies of node.js would white screen the app.
- Improve the rendering of Japanese text.
- Prevent the team selector from occasionally going MIA.
- Alt-F4 no longer kills the app (Ctrl-Q is your new Quit hotkey).
- Emojis in notifications are no longer cruelly cut off.
- Tooltips aren't so sluggish, and we no longer create (Empty) ones.
- People who are on more than nine teams (nine? REALLY?) you can now sign into all of them. All more-than-nine.
