xplr v0.8.5 released with a many improvements
Published on May 12, 2021 by Arijit Basu

This update is a special one because it fixes the long pending optimization issues.

Some mentionable changes are -

- Nicer key binding where the mode won't reset back to default when you press an invalid key, protecting you from further wrong moves.
- Reduced binary size.
- Faster & smoother rendering.
- Lesser (negligible) CPU usage.

However, there is still a lot of scope for further optimization and reduction in the binary size, which will come as xplr stabilizes.

In case you missed the last couple of updates, you'll probably like to check out xplr's new theming and layout management capabilities.


Lastly, thanks a lot for your support for the project. This is what motivates me to keep working on improving xplr.

Stay safe & keep exploring.
