Android Version 0.1.11: Big Style Edition

Say hello to the new slash-widget and style menu!

New features & enhancements :rocket:

    • New slash: a boost for content creation. You can now write / anywhere or use the / button, located above the keyboard. Simply enter some text to filter your results.The new Style section works with text styles on the current block. The “turn-into” action creates objects from the blocks and no longer works with styles.

Design & UX :white_square_button:

Anytype’s first relation. Description is a simple block that contains a short description, and can be used in databases for context extension, filtering, sorting and many more in the future. Please tell us what you think!

Fixes & tech :fire_engine:

    • Show keyboard when focusing on a filter in the navigation screen
    • Show the keyboard when focusing on the input field while searching in-page
    • Search in emoji picker works again :pray::two_hearts::point_right::relieved::fire::thinking:

Network :spider_web:

    • Sync now works under restricted networks through special circuit relay logic. This new concept helps to connect devices between VPN, cellular, WiFi with NAT, and many more. This means fast syncing in more cases. We will continue to improve sync across all network topologies, including LANs
    • Our core library (libp2p) was updated on the backup server. Now if two devices open a TCP connection to each other at the same time using the same set of ports, they’ll end up with a single TCP connection. Previously, libp2p would treat this as an error and disconnect. The server update itself doesn’t fix this, so you need to install the latest version on your device and bring the syncing consistency back!
