We’re on version 3.9.6, but hadn’t had new release notes since 3.9.0. If you hadn’t noticed, pretend we didn’t say that. If you did notice, this is for you.
We hadn’t released any new features since 3.9.0 so we didn’t want to bother you with notes (let’s be real, we didn’t want to sit down and write multiple versions saying the exact same thing). However, we did fix crashes and update support for older Android versions so we quietly made six, small updates. Hopefully this clarifies things!
