And, given the slightly smaller (yet not less impressive) number of changes, we have space to give some special thanks (character count now at 495):

∙ Support for podcast 2.0 chapters (@tonytamsf)
∙ Statistics: filter based on month/year (@ByteHamster), access via button on Subscriptions toolbar instead of Settings (@IordanisKokk)
∙ Local feed bug fixes & improvements (@ByteHamster)
∙ Design improvements (design: George, code: @ByteHamster)
∙ Update feeds to https if possible, better handle captive portal redirects (@ByteHamster)
∙ As always, even though we never list it: new & updated translations (thanks to all our lovely translators)

Dots instead of dashes inspired by Google’s Messages app - hope it increases readability a bit.
