The most recent update for the Slack business-themed messaging service on Windows includes some notification improvements for Windows 10 users.
Here's what's new and what's been fixed in Slack 2.1.0, also known as "Dog Days Are Over":
- Customers on the Windows 10 beta will see enhanced notifications, including the sender's profile picture and image attachments. What a delight!
- When resuming from sleep, Slack was unusually groggy and would sometimes take over a minute to reconnect. We set an alarm, applied caffeine and a dash of code, and behold: the app resumes much faster now.
- A shiny new About box that lists our licenses legibly. Legalese: let it be.
- Can't find the release notes, you say? Wait, how did you get here? Oh well– try Help > What's New next time.
- An issue where teams could fall out of any sensible order in the sidebar. We put them back in formation.
- The sidebar was using the menu background color rather than the channel list color, resulting in a fashion faux pas for some custom themes.
- Always Show Menu Bar was checked when it should be unchecked, and unchecked when it should be checked. We swizzled its quantum spin and the universe is consistent once again.
- Opening developer tools through a troubleshooting link (which we occasionally use for support) now does what we told you it would do.
