Disqus Beta for Windows 10 picks up modern icons and reply notifications

The official Disqus app for Windows 10 PC and Mobile may still be in beta, but it's coming together quite quickly. The app's latest update debuts a new, more modern look for most of its icons, along with reply notifications (finally), updated translations and more.

Here's all of what's new in version 4.0.14 of the Disqus app for Windows 10:

  • New Notifications! You can now get notified when someone replies to you, and the app will periodically update the count when open
  • Modern look and feel! Replaced most of the app icons with more modern-Windows ones, and made smaller UI tweaks
  • Updated translations, added Dutch as an option, and added a "Help Translate" link to the feedback popup
  • The app will now require at least the Anniversary update
  • Fixed an issue where comments from a user would appear even when you blocked them
  • Fixed an issue where linked image/gif URLs wouldn't embed the image

That's definitely not too shabby for heavy Disqus users. With this update, Disqus notes that it is "inching closer to release." For now, however, you may still hit a snag or two here and there as bugs continue to be worked out.
