This release fixes an important bug where the home page isn’t usable. Additionally a new local external storage option was added.

Please note that this is still a beta release and may contain bugs. If you find a bug, please report it on GitHub.


A new local connection was added. This allows you to store files on your local device outside of the notes folder.

You can now move the canvas using the trackpad. This is especially useful on devices without a mouse. A new zoom shortcut was added. You can now use Ctrl + + and Ctrl + - to zoom in and out.
