Version 0.9 of Corebird is now in the updates-testing repo for Fedora 21 and Rawhide.

Please check it out, test and give karma!

This update makes this already awesome twitter client much better, with a bunch of updates, including:

  • Mentions, hashtags and links now get highlighted directly in the dialog where tweets are composed.
  • The avatar icon in the top left of the main Corebird window is now clickable. When clicked, every account configured in Corebird is displayed in a list, allowing a quicker way of switching accounts.
  • The dark theme setting in the Corebird user preferences is now removed. If you previously set the dark theme, it will continue to work, but is not really a supported feature of corebird, so the theme may render strangely. It is also still possible to turn the dark theme on or off using the GNOME dconf editor.
  • The arrow keys on the keyboard can now be used to navigate between images if a tweet has multiple images or videos attached.
  • Avatars in tweets and profiles now show if the user is a Twitter verified account.
  • Corebird now has a back button in the main window to easily navigate between panes.
  • Many tweaks to the user interface, including better spacing of elements in the user interface, and updated icons.
