What's New in Halide Mark II 2.14.0 >
Hello Halide users! Halide 2.14 is here, and it’s an appropriate Winter update. For those of you that know macOS history, you can see Halide 2.14 as a ‘Snow Leopard’ update — while there’s no big feature changes that are visible, the actual app is significantly faster, more reliable, and better.
In addition to our Zero Shutter Lag feature that reduces delay of capturing a shot to near-zero, we now save those photos faster than ever. In the past, if you took certain types of photos that take seconds to process (we’re looking at you 48 megapixel photos), then if you kept hitting the capture button, your iPhone would get overwhelmed and stop letting you take more photos. Not fun.
With deferred processing, your iPhone now waits to finish processing your photos until you’ve given it a few seconds to rest and take a breath. This helps prevent you from missing that one perfect shot!
Sometimes our image reviewer would load slowly right after taking a photo. This is frustrating when you want to check on your shot — a thing most of us do on a regular basis. Thanks to some serious engineering work by Ben, the reviewer can now show images nearly instantly — and even shows a pre-processed image before the processing has completed. It even has a snazzy processing indicator so you can see your image is being ‘worked on’ by the system before it is ready.
A fun note: this review revamp is so fast that we had to add an artificial delay to test the new processing indicator. It’s really very quick. It is our best photo reviewer yet, and we think you are going to love it.
FIXES AND ENHANCEMENTS
Oops, this is starting to look like far too substantial a release note. Does anyone even read these? (if you do, leave us a review on the App Store! it really helps out.) Time for the generic boilerplate:
Thanks for using Halide! We update our app regularly to make it better for you. This update includes:
- Performance improvements for smoother and faster experience.
- Bug fixes to ensure a more reliable app.
- Minor enhancements to improve usability.
Thank you all! We hope you have a great holiday season, and we’re excited to show you all we have in stock for you in 2024.
