- Most improvements are geared towards improving the behaviour of the Camera2 API – especially for the
- OnePlus 3T, but hopefully this improves some things for other devices too. Flash auto mode also now shows a
- flash symbol to indicate when flash will fire (Camera2 mode only).
- Also fixes a couple of crashes. And continuous focus is now the default focus mode for new installs.
