Skip Update News/Changelog + Signup for Updates


Recommended Posts

Hi all! It's been requested that we provide some kind of easy way to get notifications about new updates to Skip and the Skip App. Seemed like the easiest way to do this was to create a subgroup of our mailing list that was specifically for Skip news and changelogs.

For the most part, we pretty rarely send out a lot of emails, so this will be a bit of a change for us and a learning experience. So if you sign up and don't like the frequency of emails (too many, too few, etc.) feel free to comment below. We want this to be a collaborative process. 

Signup form can be found on the Skip page under downloads:

Linux Improvements and New Tooltips

Hello to all of you who subscribed to our Skip updates and features newsletter! The second update brings you only a single changelog, but there are a few nice little quality-of-life improvements.


You can find the full changelog below. Here are the highlights:

  • Tux Linux support continues to improve.

  • The highlight effect on buttons in compact mode has been fixed

Mouseover Tooltip on Device

Sometimes, it's the little things. Now, when you hover over a device on the Activity and Buttons Panel, you'll see both the manufacturer and model information. This change provides you with helpful data at a glance.


What’s Next

As always, we have multiple upcoming goals. In the near term, we expect to have Linux auto-updates to match Windows and Mac updates.


In the longer term, we are fully delving into remote control learning that takes full advantage of the advances we have made in library database management. If you missed it, check out our library update blogpost!
