Beta 2 is now live! I wrote about what’s new here:
New Local Posts Are Always Drafts
The first change is that any new post is created as a local post in your Drafts. Previously, if you were viewing the posts in your My Cool Blog collection, creating a new local post would place it in that collection; now, no matter what you’re looking at, it will always end up in Drafts. This makes the button’s behaviour easier to understand — no having to guess where the new post you created ended up.
Moving Posts Between Collections
The biggest change, though, is that you can now move posts between your Drafts and collections. I’m personally pretty excited about this, because it wasn’t even in-scope for the first release. But we got it done, and I’m really happy with how it works!
There are three parts to this feature.
First, the Share and Publish buttons in the post editor have been moved under a single Menu button. Tap it, and you’ll find a few actions you can take on the post.
If this is a local Draft, tapping the Menu button presents two options: Publish… and Share . The Share option will be disabled, because the post is local — you can’t share a link to something that’s not live on the web, after all.
Tapping the Publish… option presents a submenu asking you where you’d like to publish the post. Choose the blog you want the post to be a part of (or Drafts), and it’ll be published there!
If you’ve got a published post loaded in the editor, the menu is a little different. You’ll still see the Publish and Share options, but below that you’ll also see a list of your blogs. Just tap the blog you want to move the post to, and the app will send the request to the server for you.
You can also check out the release notes for bugfixes and other changes.
