1.1 Alpha 1

1 minute read

Zavala 1.1 is now ready for testing on iOS. It won’t be available on the Mac for testing in this release. Because of how Apple distributes App Store apps, it isn’t yet possible to test Zavala by directly distributing it like we did with the 1.0 version. Eventually we will be able to with TestFlight for Mac coming in macOS 12 Monterey.

A word of caution. It will automatically update the on disk database, so once you begin using Zavala 1.1, you can’t go back to 1.0. Also if you are using iCloud to sync to a Mac, opening an outline with images embedded in it on the Mac will cause those images to be lost.

You can get the the iOS version on TestFlight.
