What's new in v2021.5?
Here comes a new update to take care of some pernicious little bugs that cropped up in the last release. Nothing huge, but important nevertheless.
The recent update had a minor code change that made it so that sharing GIFs, even successfully, always resulted in a non-specific error message being displayed. Innocuous as that is, I couldn't let it stand, so I reversed the change that caused it. Did I cause another bug to spawn in the depths of GIFwrapped? Maybe. Probably. We may never know.
It turns out that when I rewrote the Settings screens, I overlooked the Premium option for disabling the watermark added to Live and Burst photos when converting them to GIFs. I connected one up to the other, so it should respect what it's set to once again.
Like all social networks, Twitter often make changes to their website to introduce features, fix bugs... or just tweak stuff to "improve engagement". It doesn't always affect GIFwrapped's ability to download GIFs from Twitter, but sometimes they change just the right thing, and I end up with hundreds of emails telling me how bad GIFwrapped is and "how dare you censor me" which is just so much fun. Anyway, here's an update that restores parsing tweets for GIFs.
Thanks again for using GIFwrapped... especially if you're a Premium subscriber! I'm hard at work getting a macOS release ready to go, but if you need to reach out, toss an email to email@example.com, or lob a tweet to @gifwrapped on Twitter. I'll do what I can to help.
Until next time... happy holidays!
