New compact header with wider search bar and saved filter name
Compact header bar
Increased space for the task list by making the header bar more compact.
Signed in user name and the log out link – both infrequently used – are now available in the sidebar instead of at top of the app. The syncing indicator (#2 in the screenshot below) now appears in the footer when active.
The filter field is now wider, and a consumes all available free space in the header. This allows for longer filters to be fully available.
If the current filter text is saved in the sidebar, the name of the filter appears before the filter text (#1 above).
Finally, traversing the task list with keyboard up/down now also focuses on the filter search. Pressing down key when on the last task, or up key from the first task goes to filter input. Pressing down in the filter moves focus to the first task, pressing up focuses the last task.
Dates entered in the due date and completion date fields are verified before accepting. A warning message is shown if the date is invalid.
Bug fix: Completion date field was not shown at times when editing a completed task
That’s all for now.
As usual, please share any bugs, or new feature suggestions that you come across.
If you are like me – dark theme system wide, and brightness and contrast turned low – then you may like this update.
A dark theme is now available in the tab search window. It applies consistently across all three tabs – search, duplicates and actions. The theme may be chosen on the options page, or quickly switched from the actions tab.
Thanks to Federico Cimorelli for reporting this change.
This update restores most of the functions for Pocket Beta users:
‘Read something’ works again
Coloured time tags and total article count are visible on the Pocket website
Article filtering is back, though it doesn’t work well at the moment
Pocket Beta only shows 12 articles at a time, so only they are filtered, reducing the number of visible articles
New permissions & updating the extension
As Pocket beta works on a new URL, the extension requires additional permission to access that URL. So Chrome will disable the extension when you upgrade, till AcceleReader is allowed to access the new Beta URL as well.
Also, you may need to open your Pocket list once – ‘https://app.getpocket.com‘ – before the extension registers that you are using the beta version, and starts serving you pages on the beta URL.
There are also some other minor updates to the filtering tags in the side bar, and the filtering popup.
See a list of duplicate tabs when the red duplicate indicator dot is on. This list may be opened from the duplicate tabs notification, Clutter Free button context menu, or the Clutter Free popup actions.
We may close individual tabs from the list by clicking the ‘×‘ button, or we may close all duplicates using the ‘Close all duplicate tabs‘ action on top. Hovering on the ‘Close all duplicate tabs’ action highlights the tabs that will be closed. Original tabs are marked with a tab layer icon on the left. Pinned tabs are also identified with a pin.
Keyboard actions available in the duplicate tabs list:
‘Up‘/’Down‘: Select previous/next tab in the list
‘Enter‘: Focus selected tab in the browser
‘Delete‘: Close selected tab
‘Esc‘: Clear selection
‘F1‘/’?‘: Show available keyboard shortcuts
When more than one on-page context menus are available, they are grouped under a ‘Clutter Free’ menu – parent menu text shortened to just the extension name
Removed donation links from the extension
Removed some bugs
That’s all, folks!
Please share your feedback, including suggestions and any bugs you find using this link.
Do you like Clutter Free? Show its value by joining to become a supporter.
Becoming a supporter helps fund continued maintenance and development of the extension. It also helps me determine if there is a genuine value being delivered by Clutter Free, and direct focus on requests from supporting users.
There are three levels of supporter memberships available:
Supporter($1.49 / £0.99 / €0.99 – a month)
Promoter($2.99 / £2.99 / €2.99 – a month)
Patron($7.99 / £5.99 / €6.99 – a month)
Please pick a supporter level that reflects both your ability to pay, and how useful you find Clutter Free.
There are no supporter-only features at the moment. However, some of the upcoming features will launch as supporter-first or supporter only.
All supporter features will be available across all supporter levels – no discrimination based on ability to support. All current features (end of November 2018) will always remain free and available to all users.
Fixed: Total reading time and article filtering options not appearing
The issue appears to have been occuring when Pocket took a bit longer to load the article list. This has now been fixed. I have tested it on multiple operating systems, and different connection speeds, and it appears to be working correctly.
There are also some other minor updates to the way tags are added to newly added articles, and the extension popup.
A theme for the coming dark winter months (except for the lucky ones down under). It works with all the in-built highlight colours, and on all app screens. Switch between the themes from the options page. I will soon also provide a keyboard shortcut for switching themes.
(A few more screen shots are shared near the bottom of this post)
Note: The dark theme is available to everyone at the moment. However, I plan to turn the dark theme, and some new planned features, into paid upgrades.
All the functionality already in the app will stay free, including any core updates added in the future.
Tweaked the appearance of side drawer, including sliding it in and out
Removed extra highlighting from the checkboxes and edit & delete links
Small bug fixes
There are again a lot of changes in this version. This may mean that a few bugs may have escaped my testing. Please do share any bugs, or feature glitches that you come across.
