Version 2.10 Update Note

Stacks Image 55
When you a ready you can change to the new Categories. Changing this will update the categories popup menu items. This does NOT change your existing channel categories, you must also select your new categories from the popup menu.

v 2.8

Most of the changes in this version are under the hood, the major addition is publishing your podcast information to a shared space on iCloud. xCode has given us better tools to help with layout, so I spent a lot of time getting the fields tidy and they now behave better when resizing, and moving across the main tabs. The code base has been update to Swift 5 and I've moved to the a newer idiom, this will help when adding new features. Reworked the URL checking again, this is now checking for valid paths before going out to the web, rather than handling errors after trying to contact the URL. It's stricter and it will better report errors, if things go wrong. On a technical side I put in a lot of work to removed Implicitly Unwrapped Optionals, while these "should" never have failed if they did the App would have crashed, now we unwrap and report errors if they are encountered, going forward the code is far more robust. There are many little quality of life additions, such as highlighting missing required fields, and RSS feed errors, a few extra preferences. Happy podcasting.

RSS Changes:
Duration is now in total Seconds, not HH:MM:SS
Explicit is now true/false, not YES/NO

Import XML Changes:
A single number is treated as Seconds
