New BringCast 4 UWP public beta build: 4.0.225

We got to the bottom of the pending issue.. you will need to temporarily disable backup of BringCast under settings->Backup->More options.  We have developed a fix for this but it will only be deployed when we cut over to the production release app at RTM.  Use the above workaround in the meantime.  Other than that, this build is pretty much fixes only.

  • Fix: Playlist episode rollover when app is in the background causes now playing hero image to be incorrect
  • Fix: resizing window width doesn’t move thumb on scrubber
  • Fix: the text that share generates
  • Video playback doesn’t occur correctly when expected when rolling over in a mixed audio / video playlist
  • Update Icons in the drawer
  • Fix: username / password field width in settings
  • Fix: pending issue (note: fix is currently turned off until we cut over to the production Store app, disable backup of BringCast as a workaround)
  • Fix: the missing icon after reordering playlist
  • Fix: exceptions generated after multiple reorder operations
  • Fix: logic for unbinding items when scrolling
  • Fix: no placeholders when no network
