The new Mast update (1.4.4) is now here and available to download via the App Store, with an emergency fix for the bad crash bug plaguing a few users.
@JPEG Thank you for the quick fix and the new features in this update!
@JPEG fantastic ! Now it works !!
@JPEG Got the update and it worked for a while. Now it's crashing immediately on app launch again. It looks like it's trying to refresh my home feed when it happens.
I had another crash while refreshing this morning, but it didn’t lock me into a launch-crash cycle. Killing the app and relaunching fixed it.
Whatever the problem is, it’s specific to some refresh edge case. The crash on launch only happened when the problem refresh was happening on launch.
@JPEG Everythings works great !! Thanks for this fix. :)
@JPEG Still crashes on startup.
@pheraph Did a fresh reinstall work?
@JPEG I didn’t try, because I wasn’t sure if you need the app data for debugging.
@JPEG For whatever reason Mast now crashes again. Compared to last time I can see the timeline for a fraction of a second.
@julianruf This is fixed for the next version now, apologies about that.
@JPEG No problem 😃 Thank you for fixing it in the next update!
@JPEG it crashes at startup for me. newest version. I had just logged in to an older instance that hasnt updated for many versions of mastodon. mast opens, doesn’t load anything and when I try to change instances it crashes. tried force quitting and no luck.
@wakest Did you try a fresh reinstall?
@JPEG yeah that fixed it. got back in thanks.
@JPEG What's the best place to send you bug reports like this? I keep getting the same instant crash on reload issue, using the newest version. I've already both offloaded and entirely deleted / reinstalled it. It's otherwise a fantastic app, so I'd like to help you figure out what might be causing it.
Could it be related to my phone only having about 1g free of storage?
@foureyedsoul Here or on my GitHub through the open source link on my profile would be best, and that issues been resolved for the next update, thanks!
