  1. An issue I noticed and that several other beta testers sent direct feedback about: The store stats (orders, revenue, stats graphs) is incorrectly showing no data. This was reported in this GitHub issue. A fix was merged and will be included in the next release (I’m checking to see if there will be a new beta release or if it will just be part of the final 1.3 release).


  2. The name of your store is now shown as the title of “My Store” tab.

    I tested my store name and in every case it showed up as expected.

    I tested switching stores and looking at the “My Store” tab in portrait and landscape. I also tested changing my store’s name to include special characters (accented characters, symbols, emoji) and everything showed up perfectly. When I made more store name very long, it filled the available space and then showed an ellipsis, which made sense.

  3. Added support for manually changing the status of an order!

    This worked really well for me! The list of statuses appeared with custom order statuses as expected. Changing an order’s status worked, and undoing the status change reverted the order to its last saved status. When I navigated back to the order list, the list refreshed and displayed the order’s new status.
