The theme of this bulletin is 'friendship'. Though I didn't know it would be when I started writing.
As Kinopio evolves and more people use spaces for a wider variety of things, I feel like I also need to evolve the way I describe it.
How would you explain Kinopio to a friend, or maybe to someone you just met?
If you asked a close friend that you haven’t seen in 3 months “what’s new?”, they’d probably reply with “not too much”. Which really means, “there’s too much to remember, and I’m not in the mood to recount everything”.
But what if they did remember, and they were in the mood? Their tale would be long, with many sprawling tangents:
- [New Blog Post] In Search of Organic Software
- Merge and Split Cards to bring related ideas together and split big notes apart.
- Hide Spaces to keep your spaces list neat and tidy
- New Backgrounds bringing new looks to your spaces
- Hold Space or Middle Mouse Button to Pan so you can move around just like you can in other apps like ArchiCAD, Blender, and Figma
- Easier to Turn Cards into Comments that you can hide, or view all
- Guides showing how people use Kinopio. Thanks to everyone who contributed write-ups about their spaces and earned a Guide Maker badge
- Sticky Cards – Hovering your mouse over cards 'sticks' them to you. Not useful in any way, but really fun and really satisfying ~
- Sidebar is a more convenient way to access power-user options like Tags and Links
- 📈 Featured on the front page of HackerNews
- 💹 Sold out of fabric patches, what should I make next?
- Minimap – Hold down 'z' or click the button in the bottom right to toggle on the minimap. Drag the window around to adjust your view, or tap anywhere to jump
- Performance Up when dragging cards and connections together
- Daily Journal Weather adds today's weather forecast to your daily journals to help plan your day
- You can Donate to provide extra support for Kinopio's ongoing sustainability
- Add Arrows to Connections to create sequences and diagrams with explicit directions
- Copy Anything, Paste Anywhere lets you Copy/Paste cards and connections across spaces, windows, browsers, and other apps. Or paste copied text from other apps right into Kinopio.
- Remove Ad Trackers from URLs when pasting into Kinopio
- Mobile UI Improvements with smoother header and footer re-positioning and fade-out while swiping and pinch zooming
- Full Color Formats Support with support for transparent cards with RGBA, and CSS shorthands like 'yellow' or 'cyan'
After unravelling your friend's long yarn, you stroke your newly grown beard and/or bangs in silent comprehension – while secretly you regret asking the question.
