Release: 2.21.1

River Ver, St Albans2.21.1 was released last night; it had been held off a little because of a regression in #486445, which is now fixed. Therefore, more patches than I’d ordinarily have expected to go into a point release went in.

Thanks to Elijah Newren, Alex R.M. Turner, Peter Bloomfield, Iain Holmes, Jans Granseuer, Federico Mena Quintero and Thomas Thurman for improvements in this release.

  • Add –sync option, like all other GTK apps (Iain)
  • Don’t save window’s position if it’s maximised (Peter) (#461927)
  • Memory leak fix in preview (Jans) (#469682)
  • Truncate tab popup string correctly, and refactor function (Alex)
  • Windows which pop up under always-on-top windows don’t get the focus, but do get the “needs attention” hint (Thomas) (#486445)
  • Fix error in function call which caused focus problems (Federico) (partial fix of #488468)
