In this release, we've fixed a bug that was preventing some videos from loading properly and we've updated our logos. In the local tab, regions are now listed alphabetically.

Version v.2018.03.02

Our Local section now allows you to sort stories by Editor's picks or Publishing time. We’ve made a fix so we can remember where you were in the lineup when you return to it after reading a story. Your previous queries will appear in the search bar, helping you find what you’re seeking quickly and easily. And we've remedied the persistent "No Internet Connection" message you may have received. As always, we continue to polish and refine our design.
