Dark Mode in Photoxor Toolkit

The July edition of Photoxor Toolkit is nearly ready, and it supports the long awaited 'dark mode'.
Dark mode not only helps to save battery power. For us photographers viewing a bright screen during twilight can be quite irritating. Now just a quick change using the new 'Display' button on the Start screen to switch between dark and light modes!

Permissions revisited

Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) introduced a new permissions model (see here for some information). When you run the application on Android 6.0 or later, permissions are granted by the user while the app is running. You are now able to deny particular permissions, and also revoke already granted permissions.
Please note that in case permissions are not granted or revoked, the app might not work correctly and is limited in functionality.
Starting with Photoxor Toolkit June 2019 release 19-06 required permissions are requested closer to when they are needed. Hopefully this provides a better understanding for our users why certain permissions are needed.

New Version Numbering & Release Priorities


The upcoming release of Photoxor Toolkit applies a new version numbering scheme. The current version is 1.5.6, representing the traditional concept of major and minor version. App development tries to deliver often and in small increments. So there is no real case for a major revision upgrade to say 2.x.x.
