A second major release in less than a week? Yes!

New Features

  • API: The API is now public to all with a proper documentation released with it. Check it out!


  • Text Editor: Various changes have been done to the text editor.
    • The UI has been improved (for all themes).
    • The context menu has been removed in favor of allowing direct access to the spellchecker (no longer need to ctrl+right click).
    • Column colspans are now properly saved.
    • The Month (#) selector has been fixed.
    • The Mentions dropdown should no longer hide behind other content.
    • However, mentions still don't work on mobile (specifically Chrome on Android). A fix for this still needs to be found or developed.
  • Calendars: Months now have a "type" setting which indicates if they are standard or intercalary months. Intercalary means that they fall out of the standard week. 
  • Locations: When viewing characters and locations in a location, it is now possible to filter on direct or all descendants.
  • Campaign: A new value "Entity Count" is now visible on the campaign page.
  • FAQ: The FAQ can now be translated by the translators directly, rather than the complicated workflow that was in place until now.
  • Tags: The "menu" layout has been added to tags, with a toggable filter on all and only direct tags and children entities.
  • Menu Links: They can now link to a specific menu page of an entity, but also now to an entity index with filters (for example all characters in location 'Waterdeep' and which are dead).
  • Tags: Files can now be uploaded to tags.
  • Welcome Message: Improved the welcome message on the dashboard for new users to include common features and links to the tutorials, FAQ and Discord.

Bug Fixes

  • Copy: Many fields (notably the entry field) weren't been pre-filled when copying an entity.
  • Searchable Dropdowns: "Searching...", "No Results Found" and "An Error Occured" in the dropdowns are now translated.
  • Character Randomiser: The randomiser has been fixed and generates a lot more random fields, including traits, location and race.
  • Calendars: Errors in calendar will now fail more gracefully and display an actual error with what needs to be fixed.
  • Campaign Invites: An edge-case error is now handled by redirecting the user to the dashboard instead of throwing an error.
  • Menu Links: The search field now works.
  • Search: The old search (/search) has been fixed for users who still want to use it.
  • Attributes: Errors when saving attributes are now properly handled.
  • Themes: Dark, Midnight Blue and Modern have received some fixes and improvements.
