FIXED Problems when taking HDR or expo photos quickly without pause, the second photo would use
FIXED On-screen icons (e.g., for HDR) didn’t show after restarting.
FIXED When using volume keys to switch auto-level on/off, user interface wasn’t updating properly.
FIXED Some stored “values” for zh-rCN shouldn’t have been translated.
ADDED New options under “Photo settings” to support Artist and/or Copyright Exif tags in images.
ADDED On-screen icons for DRO and Expo Bracketing modes.
ADDED On-screen icon for when audio is disabled in video mode.
UPDATED Improved appearance of on-screen text and photo stamp text (draw fonts with outline, rather
than shaded background).
UPDATED Improved layout of on-screen information.
UPDATED Improved look of popup menu.
UPDATED Some preferences in settings now show the currently selected value.
UPDATED Improved performance when going to settings in portrait mode.
UPDATED Don’t request audio permission (or show toast if not available) if record audio option for
video is disabled.
UPDATED Zoom now resets when pausing the application, switching camera, or switching between photo
and video modes (not resetting zoom tends to confuse users; this change also makes behaviour
consistent with other camera applications).
UPDATED Don’t block UI when image saving queue is full, instead simply don’t allow more photos to be
taken until queue is no longer full.
