3.2 release notes

Hello,

It’s time for another set of release notes again! This time for version 3.2 :tada:

In 3.2 release notes – Who wants to prepare them? I asked for support, and I’m happy to say that two folks indicated they’d be happy to help. Tonight I showed @femmdi and @Aman_Garg how to do it, and @femmdi will take over from me starting from the next release :rocket:

So, here's the full list of changes since version 3.1.2

Taking all these changes into account, I would suggest the following changelog:

🥂 A small treat for our users - check the Home screen on 10 December! (@ByteHamster, @keunes)
∙ Accessibility & synchronisation improvements (@ByteHamster)
∙ Add 'boost' options in the 'Volume adaptation' podcast setting (@matejdro)
∙ Support double/triple-pressing headset buttons (@blairun)
∙ Improve support for password-protected feeds (@ByteHamster)
∙ Add multi-select actions on search results (@vinodpatildev)
∙ Allow deleting local feed episodes (@matejdro)
∙ Android Auto bugfix (@harshad1)

Let me know if it needs any updating or if you think it’s good to go.

Do we really want to tell people about Echo in the changelog?

I would, yes :slight_smile:
It is a big change so ought to be in the overview, and might create a little suspense. I don’t think there’s a risk folks will go through the effort of changing code & building locally to see what’s there in advance.

I am curious, what was the small treat on the home page today?

It was Antennapod Echo, a recap option shown on the new Home screen.

Is it a gradual release? I can’t seem to find it.

It’s available to everyone immediately, but you gotta have version 3.2. Each version has a roll-out in stages, but everyone has access to it now.

Maybe F-Droid or Google Play didn’t tell you yet that there’s a new version? If that’s the case, you can manually check for updates, and upgrade AntennaPod.

Note also that it is only shown if you have played at least 10 hours of podcasts this year

That’s what it is. I just updated to A14 (clean upgrade, was on custom ROM previously) and forgot to backup my data and lost my listening stats.
