1. Introduce Content Shorthand

With this release we are starting to roll out a few UX changes we have been discussing for a few weeks.

The first one is the new shorthand added on some resources like Communities, Topics, Badges, ...

"C/" for communities


"B/" for badges

We plan to use this same system also for other features we are going to introduce in the upcoming releases. Hopefully users will find it useful to quickly identify a specific resource or page.

2. BeeChat Improvements

In this release we focused on a bunch on improvements to better support your chat experience and the group chats.

Support moderators and members changes in group chats
Moderators support has been added to group chats along with the option to manage members of the chat. This should make it much easier to manage large group chats.

Allow to remove chat friends
You can now easily add and remove chat friends directly from the chat sidebar.

Stay signed in when switching accounts
This basically should reduce the number of times you are required to sign into BeeChat when switching accounts (mostly annoying in case you logged in with Keychain and it ask you to sing the login message).

3. Show estimated USD value on transfers

When performing an action that involve HIVE/HBD an estimated amount (in USD) is now shown. This is quite useful for transfers, but included also in other operation like 'Transfer to Savings'.
