- Moved videos back into the Latest feed
- Included the author name for each post
- Fixed bugs related to GIFs, commenting, location permissions, thumbnails, zooming in/out
- Improved the app performance through things with fancy acronyms like ARC
- Added an "About" section
- Fixed a bug that caused excess data usage
- Removed on-disk caching to use less memory on your device
- Fixed a bug where clicking on a commenters avatar could hang the app
