Aura 4 - The Biggest Release Yet

Thursday 21 February, 2019

I'm delighted to release Aura 4. This release represents well over a year of work and many thousands of changes. For the sake of brevity, here are just three of the main ones.

Search bar

The search bar has become much more powerful. A fuzzy, quick search matches thousands of items from your accounts and lets you jump to anything instantly. Contacts, inboxes, categories, labels or types of mail.

Gmail Improvements

Improvements all round to how Aura interacts with Gmail. All of Gmail's smart categories are accessible. The synchronization has been improved along with better sleep/wake behavior.

Dark Mode

Mojave added support for a system dark mode, and Aura fully supports it. You'll even notice the theme colors used throughout.

A more complete run down of all the bug fixes and smaller improvements will be published soon.

Finally, stricter requirements for access to Gmail data were published at the beginning of the year. Aura has always treated your email data securely and already met all of the requirements. But users of older versions of Aura will need to migrate to Aura 4 as API keys for versions 1 - 3 are going to expire. Aura 4 is a free upgrade for all customers and I will be contacting you soon if you haven't yet upgraded.
