Hi πŸ‘‹

Welcome, WhatPulse enthusiasts! I’m thrilled to introduce the latest version of WhatPulse, version 5.7, packed with a new features, a ton of improvements and bug fixes to help elevate your user experience. Let's delve into a few key highlights of this release:

πŸŽ‰ New Features​

  • Brazilian Portuguese Language: WhatPulse now offers a Brazilian Portuguese translation, enriching accessibility for Portuguese-speaking users thanks to Γ‰der MagalhΓ£es Machado's contribution.
  • Windows Installer Update: You can now install WhatPulse without requiring Administrative permissions. This is an alternative to using Portable Mode on computers where you don’t have any administrative permissions (like a work computer). More information here.

πŸ“ˆ Improvements​

  • SSL Libraries now included for Linux: The AppImage now consistently loads bundled OpenSSL libraries, preventing SSL errors due to version disparities. You’d get SSL errors when trying to log in before.
  • macOS Compatibility: Dynamically detects whether the device runs on Intel or Apple Silicon-based systems, ensuring you receive the correct version during updates.
  • Client API Enhancements: Improved REST API functionality with consistent JSON format headers for seamless connectivity. This could’ve led to delays when calling the Client API in the previous release.
  • Windows Registry Optimization: The installer now uniformly uses 'WhatPulse' as its registry key, ensuring accurate version tracking across applications. Apps like UCheck Software Updater can now correctly see the latest WhatPulse version.

πŸ› Bug Fixes​

  • Settings: Resolved an issue where disabling auto pulse settings failed to save correctly, and settings with inputs were not editable when the Geek Window was open.
  • Uptime Calendar Bug: Fixed a crash related to fast navigation through the uptime calendar.
  • A bug that could cause the application to crash if a backup took too long has been fixed.
  • Fixed keyboard heat map sharing to your online profile.

There’s even more improvements and bug fixes included in version 5.7, these were the highlights. Check out the release notes for a full list!
