    fixes CRYPTEE-B2C (Itnl Segmenter on older browsers)

  • John Ozbay (13 May 24)

    Lots of new features, changes & hundreds of fixes! # BIG FEATURES & NEWS + Paste got smarter! We now delete bg color, color, size, font, and similar annoying things on paste, but keep bold, italic, links, code etc. You can now paste freely and expect formatting to remain. Like word. Thanks to some server updates and intelligent data center routing: + Docs saves are now up to 6x faster, + Photo uploads are now up to 2x faster, # UPDATES Sentry to v7.114.0 Dexie to v4.0.4, will remove 3.0.3 in fall update, just in case DOMPurify to v3.1.3 # CHANGES Added metrics to api calls Added metrics to helpdesk Added save-doc metric Added time-to-auth metric Added a check for adblockers blocking stripe A little better plan handling for discounted / gifted / bounty rewarded accounts Increased autosave to 2 seconds Updated saving progress bar to match our new save speeds # SERVER & CLIENT CHANGES Docs under 4mb are now uploaded in single chunk using uploadFile vs streamingUploadFile. This means the average doc save now takes 500s vs 3s. Orig photos now use uploadFile if <4mb, all thumbs and lightbox images use uploadFile, and everything else is streaming. this seems to cut down upload times 2x after server improvements # FIXES fixes CRYPTEE-9AW, fixes some home news bugs should fix CRYPTEE-819 Minor error handling fixes for MFA fixes #203 — word count is correct for more languages using browser locale 100s of other small fixes
