What’s new in version 3.1.1
Updated on Dec 20 2021
Migrates the change history to its own location in Application Support. This is to prevent possible corruption of user's configurations in cases where the change history grows very large. It also means that the change history can be managed or cleared easily and independently of other things. (change history is distinct from the website archives, which have always had their own location.)
Fixes problem that would prevent images from showing in the archive browser if the page in question had images but zero hyperlinks.
