Version 1.4 “Circle” will, in summary, completely change many aspects of Random.
Credit to @email@example.com for most of these changes. I owe you a debt of gratitude.
Buttons Moved Out
Upon the first starting of Random, you'll notice that the Number to Roulette function has moved.
This is to aim for a better experience for all users of Random.
All three panels have drawing animations now; of fade-in and fade-out. See the below GIF.
Then, probably the largest change:
New Roulette UI
The Roulette UI has been reinvented from better principles. This is the largest design change in the history of Random. When you first open Roulette, you see something along the lines of this:
Let's dissect this.
Choices are now Rows
The choices are now
AdwPreferenceRows, each with a text box and a delete button. The text box, well, controls what the item represented by the row actually is. The delete button should also be obvious.
The Add button
There is a new
+ button to add rows to Roulette, to have more options to pick from.
More menu right next to the
+ button. It has the following contents:
This is a toggleable option, it replaces the function in the primary menu.
Paste from Clipboard
Miss the old way of adding to Roulette? You can still do that, for example:
Layla/Rose/Cleveland/Lampy will make 4 rows with the titles in that list when you select the
/ separator. Yes, the separator function has been added back in.
What about exporting?
It should be easy to compile a list from looking at the options. Therefore, this feature has been removed.
Just what it says; removes all rows to start fresh.
Summary of Roulette
In summary, a lot changed. There's new keyboard shortcuts too (they will be implemented). So, in general, it feels like this:
- Updated strings
- New colors for buttons
- New icons
activates-default for the entries
That's a lot for one release. It should come out soon, when the final touches have been made.
