Hi πŸ‘‹

Say hello to a fresh beta WhatPulse release! This last release of 2023 includes a new language, and a bunch of bug fixes and improvements. Read on for more details.

πŸŽ‰ New Features​

  • Brazilian Portuguese Language: WhatPulse now includes a Brazilian Portuguese translation, making it more accessible to Portuguese-speaking users. Courtesy of Γ‰der MagalhΓ£es Machado.

πŸ› Bug Fixes​

  • A bug that could cause the application to crash if a backup took too long has been fixed.
  • A fix has been applied to ensure application icons in certain lists are visible on all table rows. Certain systems had the icons inside even rows hidden.
  • Uptime Calendar Bug: Fixed a crash related to fast navigation through the uptime calendar.
  • Auto Pulse Settings Disabling Fix: Resolved an issue where disabling auto pulse settings wasn’t being saved correctly.

πŸ“ˆ Improvements​

  • Windows: The installer now consistently uses 'WhatPulse' as its registry key instead of a random GUID. This means the WhatPulse version in the registry is always up to date, meaning apps like UCheck won't be confused about which version is installed.
  • macOS: Dynamically detect whether the device is Intel or Apple Silicon-based. This means you'll always get the right version when updating.
  • Linux: The AppImage will now always load bundled OpenSSL libraries to prevent SSL errors when there's a gap in your OpenSSL version and the one WhatPulse's build with.
  • Client API: Ensured that the REST API always returns the JSON format headers, and fix a possible delay when connecting with an IP address that's not in the allowed list.
  • Immediate Tray Icon Update: When you change the color settings, the tray icon will now update right away to reflect the changes.
