Desktop App Beta 3 is out

May 31, 2018 at 9:21pm
Thanks everyone for all the feedback yesterday on Beta 2! This bumps us to version 1.0.1. which we think will fix the autoupdater functionality. You may have to delete your old version of the app and re-install this one, and hopefully all future releases will be auto updated for you. We'll learn more as we go along here, so thanks everyone for your patience!
Beta 3 also fixes a few things:
  • Should hopefully fix the menu bar acting up and showing the logo at times, or being the wrong dimensions
  • The app will now persist the window size between sessions as well as has a smaller initial start window size. H/t
  • Hides the prompt to enable desktop push notifications in the app, as this was confusing behavior since Electron supports the push notifications out of the box
  • We've switched to landing new people directly on the login screen when they open the app for the first time
We've got a few more backlogged bugs ya'll have reported, and will be working through those in the next few days to gear up for the first official release. In the meantime, thanks for keeping the feedback and reports coming!

I don't work for Spectrum. I don't think? I'm eagerly waiting the job offer though.
*awaiting yay autocorrect!
Sorry! I saw PRO and I went with it. 😂
One thing I would love to request in the Desktop app would be to have URLs open in the system's default browser.
I agree with that I think I created an issue for that. I'm sure when Brian comes full circle on his Spectrum response journey he will provide insight on that.
Hm we added links=>browser behavior recently, maybe it didn't make it into the last buidl?
I'll double check
That means we were early supporters of the beta. I still have my active $5/month subscription 😎
Let me know if you get one. You can refer me 😄

Is this stable enough to add to Brew Cask? :)
Definitely not—we're still unsure whether the auto updating works 😅

Is this still the latest or is there a GA that I missed?

I believe it's still the latest.
I have submitted a Spectrum cask to homebrew
If you guys could poke me gently whenever you have an update that would require a link change let me know, and I'll update the cask.
Tried that again. Hopefully the file loads above for everyone.
