John’s Background Switcher 5.4 Release Notes

Version 5.4 of John’s Background Switcher version fixes a few bugs and makes some much needed tweaks to JBS in general.

Features and Changes:

  • Added shared album support to Google Photos integration
  • Updated Dropbox integration to support short lived authentication tokens (a change at their end – you shouldn’t notice a thing)
  • Added support for image/jpg as well as the standard image/jpeg (basically working around websites returning the wrong thing)
  • Added support for multireddits (if you know what they are then you’re all good!)
  • Added a hidden setting to disable folder sorting (ask me if you want to switch it off)
  • Made some tweaks to the Google Photos UI as suggested by Google
  • Updated Vladstudio integration to use their new URLs
  • Downloading the largest possible photos from Pixabay when required (JBS wasn’t always doing so)

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed Unsplash featured collections no longer working
  • Fixed a crash when attempting to buy a license and no default browser is set
  • Fixed a crash when trying to view a picture (super rare but worth fixing)
  • Fixed a crash when the shortcut keys had a problem initialising
