    Huawei P8, Android 6.0

    First, let's see what the fixed issues are (most of them are cosmetic):

    • Fixed Separator style in pop-up menu
    • Fixed Separator style above message input
    • Fixed Incorrect "Sync Contacts" hint
    • Fixed Groups in Common on secret chats profile
    • Fixed Chat previews touch handling / status bar overlapping on Samsung Galaxy S8,S8+,S9,S9+
    • Fixed Incorrectly trimmed message input placeholder
    • Fixed link content may be treated as markdown tags

    There are also near a dozen of features/changes introduced. Here they are:

    • Mark chats as unread / read - You can access it by holding down your finger on a chat and then moving it to the letter icon at the bottom, and then releasing it.
    • Open chat preview by swiping up - Hold your finger on a chat for a preview and then swipe up to open it.
    • Reorder pinned chats UX change - You can hold your finger on an avatar and then swipe up or down to reorder.
    • Unread counter type: choose between number of messages and number of chats - You can find the option in Settings - Notifications.
    • Moved Link Previews in Secret Chats setting to: Settings - Privacy and Security - Secret Chats.
    • Clear Payment and Shipping Info - It's in Settings - Privacy and Security
    • Suggest Contacts toggle - It's also in Settings - Privacy and Security
    • Changed style of "Delete Synced Contacts" pop-up
    • Create Link through GUI (select text, then press link icon)
    • Improved censorship circumvention

    Also the app size is now 20% smaller, it uses less storage and launches a bit faster. These are very good improvements, so expect more to come in future.
