The main feature of this release is that the focus ring (i.e. the glowing outline around buttons and links) should be less prominent for mouse users. If you prefer to use the keyboard to navigate, then nothing should change. This follows a new web standard called "focus-visible."
If you prefer the old behavior, you can enable "Always show focus ring" in the settings.
Loading threads when clicking on statuses should also be faster.
@pinafore Does this fix the focus ring having very low contrast on the dark theme?
@jookia I didn't change any of the focus ring colors... which dark theme is low-contrast? Every theme has slightly different focus ring colors.
