Release Notes

8/10/2017 | Version : 2.7.0 | Size : 66.0 MB
What's new
• The app now stores some login information on the keychain. So if a passerby requests permission (a dialog, not a stranger), do try and approve it.
• File downloads are now pausable and – in perhaps a master stroke of matchmaking – resumable too.
• A bevy of changes to make the app more keyboard navigable.
• We’ve adjusted the app icon, but just a skosh. Putting our best foot forward.
• Should the worst happen and the app fail to load, you’ll see a less dreadful error page and perhaps even a code you can share.

• Like an electrically-motivated vampire was Slack to your laptop’s battery. Put down the garlic; leave the stakes at home: we’ve done the slaying on our end.
• We spliced some wires we shouldn’t have, causing a loading screen to flash briefly after signing into a team. Now it’s as it should be.
• The team sidebar is no longer touch-challenged. Tap, flick, and drag teams to your heart’s content.
• Canceling a running download is 38% less crashy. For when you decide you didn’t need that third gif after all.
• If you’ve set the app to start hidden in your system login items, it will listen to you.
• In a similar vein, if you send a reply from an alert-style notification, your teammates will hear you.

5/25/2017 | Version : 2.6.2 | Size : 67.8 MB
• Unexplainably, context menus and spell-check stopped working in some teams. OK: we have an explanation but we'd rather not discuss it. It's embarrassing. Rest easy knowing that it's fixed here.
• We found – and cast out – the culprit behind high resource usage while the app's sitting idle.

5/4/2017 | Version : 2.6.0 | Size : 66.4 MB
What's New
• We revamped video calls, making the experience more intuitive, and more attractive. As a bonus, they're more resource efficient and now let you change audio devices during a call. If that's the kind of thing you need to do.

• We paved over a series of potholes that were strewn about the app, making crashes far less likely.
• Should you ever wish to say goodbye to one of your teams, a right-click > Remove from the sidebar will do the trick now more reliably than before.
• Switching teams using the numbered shortcuts is noticeably faster. We would say "37%" if we were forced to put a number on it. Fortunately, we aren't, and we won't.
• Opening a context menu won't freeze videos or gifs playing in the app.
• We dusted off the cobwebs in the app menu and composted a few menu items that weren't useful when signed into one team.
• The default window size is a smidgen larger. You won't notice, because your window will keep being the same size it's always been. That's just the way it is, and we don't want it to change.
• Our spellchecker would occasionally mark correctly spelled words as incorrect. It had ONE job. It now performs it.

Comments and Ratings for Slack

App working just fine (2.5.1)
3/5/2017 1:17:00 PM 5/5 By Zeyu$
It didn’t work before but it works great now after I switched users, I think there is some sort of glitch with the new 15in MacBook Pro.

Broken (2.5.1)
3/1/2017 12:24:00 PM 1/5 By LavendrUserAS
It’s not working at all. Reconnecting for ages. Yesterday it was really faulty as well. Wouldn’t upload images, and then uploaded multiple versions of those photos hours later. Please fix ASAP! Also, the file size is satanic. 66.6mb? Come on. No wonder it’s broken. Full of DEMONS.

Don’t Update - Picture upload broken (2.5.1)
2/28/2017 1:21:00 PM 2/5 By longsincelost2
Picture upload just hangs. This is a known bug and they are working to address.

Version 2.5.1 (2.5.1)
2/27/2017 1:25:00 AM 5/5 By MachineLearningMentor
Well, Slack has done it again. Superb product. I use slack everyday. In my team, we have two bot. I asked myself, we don’t even need one, much more two. Slack is interactive so it has made the bot lazy, they don’t have nothing to do. They just lay down and look at your face waiting for you to ask for their help, which they always wait in vain. With Slack you would to do things by yourself, and if you don’t know, you would like to found out by yourself. Either communicating or creating channels. Some of my team members know how to care for Slack done I do. It’s like, they have pimp their Slack. Some is more like, they have put rims in their Slack. Nonetheless, the bot surely notify me immediately when my invitation bounce. Slack, keep it coming.

Pretty Bloated (2.4.1)
2/12/2017 8:01:00 AM 2/5 By Drewbag4
Slack is ok for real time IM, but it has become incredibly bloated lately as they continue to bolt on features without thought to streamlining. For instance, I had slack open for a few days on my laptop only to discover it was consuming about 2GB of memory; pretty unacceptable.

What a pleasure! (2.4.1)
2/4/2017 8:44:00 AM 5/5 By chauqg
I’ve been using Slack for 1 ½ years. The elimination of so much debris i.e. texting, email, collaborative documents here and there makes this App a perfect basis for any team work regardless of team size. Then, add to its powerful base the ability to extend using external apps and even create your own, makes Slack quickly becomes the standard of group communications. Its editor’s ability to write/present code in various platforms is exceptional. Everything is archived forever and searchable! I have been in IT for 40+ years, I only wish we had a tool like Slack when I was leading teams doing system development. Great Work Guys/Gals - Keep It Up!

High battery consumption (2.4.1)
1/25/2017 7:26:00 PM 2/5 By BBTutb
The app works OK on the mac, however, it kills my battery. When Slack is running, it switches on the High Performance Graphics Card on my mac. The app itself is not graphics intensive at all, and there is no reason for it to use the high performance graphics card. Until Slack get that fixed, I don’t see it as a viable tool for me. I am not ready to trade hours of battery life for what it has to offer. Support is also lacking, as the Slack site only allows me to browse existing topics, there is no way to report a problem.

Now terrible for multi-lingual communications :-( (2.4.1)
1/18/2017 10:47:00 AM 2/5 By John in Paris
I like most things about Slack, but I hate the regression in the most recent versions! Changes to how spellchecking is done now mean that only my system language is spellchecked. Which is a pain when I spend more than half my time in Slack writing in another language. And on top of that, force-touch look up of words has now been deactivated. The first problem is a major blocker for me, the second is an exceptional lack of polish in an otherwise decent app. It’s been over two months since the change that created this bug and despite assurances that developers were working on a solution, it’s still as present as ever. A major flaw in a communications tool which makes it much harder to communicate. :-(

Slow, Memory Hog, Non-Native (2.4.1)
1/14/2017 4:57:00 PM 2/5 By Gryzor
The concept of Slack is awesome, some features are awesome, but I must be from another generation, for most of the decisions in terms of UX/UI are really against anything I’ve done in the past. I don’t even want to go too deep, I just find myself trapped in this app because my company uses it, but it’s a horrible Mac app, a mere thin web wrapper that violates probably 1/2 of the HIGs and pretends to be really funny with release notes. As a web app, it’s trapped in the world of a web engine, which are not necesarily very memory friendly. Keyboard shortcuts are hard/impossible to remap in many instances. It’s also relatively buggy from time to time, so things will really look broken (CSS?) and you have to close/reopen to fix it. It’s a fancy simplified modern IRC, but implemented like a bad webapp, in fact, you could likely use the web version and it would be the same experience, except for the lack of ability to “Cmd+tab” to slack. International Keyboard support broke months ago and no fix in the horizon. Typing ``` to enter code blocks is broken and a fourth ` appears. Reactions? Very important to have people add a parrot on drugs to my comment. Drag and drop and press shift to quickly upload? Works half of the time if you do it fast, and so you end up with the dialog and have to re-do it again or just not use quick upload because it’s a hassle. This used to work before, it got broken months ago, around the same time they broke English-US Intl keyboard. Their audio calls… they are appropriate, but if the audio interface is stereo with independent channels, it only sounds on one side, because… again, it’s a web-app and they are being lazy instead of doing what a native app would do. (For the record, other web-pseudo-native-apps have the same problem, but not all). Anyway, You’re probably gonna end up having to use this app anyway, because work (I mean, I don’t imagine anyone using this just to talk with friends), so welcome to the club. Additionally, in the latest update, they changed the “incoming call” window to appear on the main screen instead of the display where slack is, just because they believe this is a bug; I guess they don’t understand the concept of having more than one display. If I wanted your crappy HTTP call window to appear in front of what I’m doing, I would have kept slack there. Who in their right mind thought that having a pop-up in the middle of your screen was a good idea? I have my slack on a secondary display for a multitude of reasons, one is because I can’t have it uninstalled, but since I need it, then I put it aside so it doesn’t distract me from, you know, actual work. I disable notifications because I don’t like popups all over the place when I’m concentrated. I will check your silly messages when go back to slack, not when the other person wants.

Pretty useful with one major flaw.. (2.4.1)
1/12/2017 11:07:00 AM 2/5 By donothitken
No hyperlinks to a local server. I freelance in an industry that creates a lot of media. We constantly need to send each other links to movies, audio, and illustrations on a shared local server. With Slack I can send the file, but not a link. This makes it a lot harder to locate shared recourses. Of course I can tell them what folder its in and they can navigate there in the finder, but on large jobs with complicated folder structures, its a huge pain. Slack is awesome, these people are smart, but as long as I need to use Messages to send hyperlinks, thats what I will use for comunication with the team.

From this dev.
