- Auto-identify with services.
- And lots more!
- SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW: To display floating windows.
- INTERNET: Without this, the client wouldn't be very useful.
- ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE: To detect connectivity changes.
- READ_LOGS: To send crash reports. No logs from other apps or personal information is collected.
- READ_PHONE_STATE: To include the device ID in crash reports. No personal information is collected, this is only used in order to know which crashes are from the same device.
- It seems there were people having crashes on start because of a compile bug, so I've recompiled it.
- Channel window is no longer shown when you join a channel. This got annoying because it would show the window on reconnect.
- Fixed an issue with starting the app when there is no connectivity. No longer refuses to connect once connectivity is gained.
- Background colors are now supported.
- Links are now blue as they should be.
- Fixed a small color related bug.
