We’ve just published the v3.3 update to our app out into the global marketplace, this release contains some important bug fixes and brings the app in line with our overall site branding.

Most important of which is a fix for the dark tile issue (where the tile would fail to render), the tile now may take some time to render correctly but in testing has a 100% render success rate finally. Please note: you will need to re-pin the main tile and forums tile to your start screen in order to see the correct new versions.

With this release finally complete I have already begun work on the Windows Phone 8 version which will undergo a 2 stage release, the first will be v3.8 that will be re-compiled and optimised for WP8 to support the new screen sizes, but will contain no new features. The second will be v4 which will bring some funky new functionality to the table.

Expect to see v3.8 in a matter of weeks sometime after a small v3.4 update which addresses a minor bug present in v3.3 (don’t worry you should never see it).

In the meantime though if you’re looking for a full change list you’ll find it below, otherwise please feel free to comment, e-mail or generally get in touch with your thoughts, feedback and questions!
