This post should be named 1.0(Build 6) because that was the first Yafra build I actually released to the App Store.
But iOS 12.2 was out the same week, so I decided to require 12.2 in order to benefit from the included Swift runtime. The download would fit on a 3.5" floppy drive, it is just 1.2MB.

Unfortunately, most of the screenshots were missing, so the App Store entry looked rather meh. Because one can’t update the previews or screenshots for a version that is “ready for sale”, I submitted version 1.0.1. It fixes a minor bug and gave me the chance to add the missing screenshots plus the app preview video. A tedious process, even when automating it via fastlane. And it is slow as well. Eight hours after the release, I still see the old version in the store….
