The official Slack app for Windows has received a fresh update, bringing the app up to version 2.0.1 while adding some further polish. As for what the update contains, this one is all about bug fixes; here's the full breakdown from Slack:

  • Many folks using a Windows Basic theme found their Alt-Tab menu overrun by notification windows, which have since been dispatched. To those folks: we are terribly sorry.
  • If your administrator had set up a session timeout, when it expired you'd be placed on a blank white screen rather than the sign in page. Serene (but not in a good way).
  • Slack would not load (and instead show a cryptic message) to those who had soft linked their AppData folder. This time we'll sleuth around for the real path, and get you to the right place (Slack).

If you already have Slack installed, you should be able to pull the update down by checking in Help > Check for Updates… > Update Now. Otherwise, you can download the full app from Slack now.
