A new version every week?

Post by Anonymosity »

What is going on with Slimjet? Why so many new versions so frequently?

A series of minor updates after the introduction of a new feature is not uncommon.

Not exactly the same as your OP

Slimjet has a history of issues with the automatic update system. It does not always work correctly. I don't bother with it anymore.

Why do we need a side tab bar? If you pull down the Tab menu, you can see a list of your tabs there, with no cutoff of the ends.

I agree 100%. I don't use it and I won't use it.
