    Update 2016-02-12

    Big update (skin support!) posted to the store. Beta access will be opened shortly.

    It would appear that anyone having sideloaded the Universal App can auto update to the latest version from Windows Store.

    Update 2016-02-18

    I'm glad to announce that the Windows Store situation has improved dramatically, beta updates get delivered within one hour of me uploading new packages, which is even faster than Apple's App Store.

    Update 2016-03-04

    Lots of bug fixes today. I'm glad to announce that the Windows Phone version should be as stable as the other ports now; in particular crashing after prolonged suspend should be all gone.

    Update 2017-09-06

    Well, I was just refreshing the store on my Lumia 1020 to see when it gets 1.0.94 with latest fixes.
    Nothing was showing up. Then I uninstalled and reinstalled. Got an old broken 1.0.85 from the app store. It should not be served anymore, but somehow it is.
    The control panel says that package 1.2.46 is being served, while my phone actually gets 1.2.41.

    It looks like Windows Phone 8.1 port is dead - even though I do have new bugfixed builds, they are not being distributed to the end users.
