RC10 Standing By...

RC10 is on its way to the beta channel... here's what's new in this version.

+ Added a new "watermark" feature. This should be supported on Android 5.0+. A watermark is a way to visually designate a PDF of your screenplay as having been created for a particular person. To use this, just go to the settings and under "General", select the "Watermark" option and type in some text. It should appear in a light grey diagonally across every page. Note this feature is only available to-- everyone-- subscribers or not. All the DubScript features are free :)
+ Major fixes to pagination for PDFs. Dialogue breaking is smarter... and more.
+ Now when you search, if you're on a hard keyboard, you can type ENTER/RETURN on the keyboard instead of having to press the "Find" or "Search" button.
+ Slight optimizations here and there. Minor bug fixes.
+ More compatibility stuff for Nougat 7.1
+ Built with the new "Jack" system using Java 1.8 instead of 1.7. This may not have much of a benefit to the final product, but then again, who knows?
+ New libraries and build tools. As improvements come from Google, DubScript incorporates them.

1.0 RC9 (Build 52) Moves to the Beta Channel!

Well it's been several rounds of RC releases with no major bug reports-- okay, no bug reports or crashes reported at all-- so I think it's time to take RC9 from the alpha testing channel to the open beta testing channel, where it will likely get a bit more exposure.

If you're trying these experimental versions for the first time, be sure to read the history of blog posts below to learn about all the great features and fixes that have been added. Be sure to report any issues you find in the forum here!
