2020.1 (5)

The main focus of this update has been switching to using CoreData internally to cache/synchronize the most up-to-date versions of all statuses. Currently, this does not provide any new functionality, however, it lays the groundwork for several significant features coming in the future, including multiple window support on iPadOS and state restoration/persistence between launches.

Even though there aren't a huge number of new features in this build, a great deal has changed under the hood. As such, this build may suffer somewhat in the stability department. Please bear with me and report any issues you encounter; you can send me a message on the fediverse, email me at me@shadowfacts.net, or file an issue on the project issue tracker at https://git.shadowfacts.net/shadowfacts/Tusker/issues.
