What’s New in Version 1.6.5

  • Fixed a bug which caused the time of last beacon to be calculated incorrectly when beaconing is off and the application is in the background for an extended time.
  • Fixed a bug, introduced in version 1.6.4, which caused beaconing to not be re-enabled on when the application was reopened.
  • New translation: Polish (Thank you, SQ8VPS!)
