We’re really excited to be launching Arsenal v1.0! This new release is rather large and includes a bunch of quality of life improvements, as well as some new features and a few new supported cameras. The full release notes are below, but the highlights include "Save to Phone" added, a workaround for the “Code 8” issue, support for the Nikon Z50, Sony A6100, and Sony A6600, and improving the speed of Smart and Handheld mode live view processing.
The full release details:
Photos can now be automatically saved to the phone! Under settings there is now sliders for saving "All", "Stacks", or "Timelapses". Arsenal will automatically create an "Arsenal" album which photos, stacks, or timelapses will be placed in. The Arsenal app can transfer photos while in the background although iOS 13 and recent Androids substantially limit the amount of time an app can be active for background transferring (still useful, but hopefully at some point they will give users more options for how much background activity an app can do). There's a status indicator in the gallery page in the Arsenal app that shows how many files are left to be synced.
Added support for Nikon Z50, Sony A6100, and Sony A6600
Added a work around for the iOS 13 "Code 8" issue
Improved iOS sharing experience - sharing is now faster and also shares a larger size image
Added multipoint focus and focus stacking for the Fuji X-T1 and Fuji X-T2
Photo processing priority is now bumped up based on which photo you are looking at in the gallery. This should be a nice user experience improvement.
Exposure Bracketing can now be run from shutter priority and manual modes on cameras
Added support for adapted lenses on Sony cameras
Improved power consumption in Smart Mode and Handheld
Reduced firmware size by 10%, which should help with faster downloads
Improved performance of Smart Mode triggering

View All is now cancelable and shows progress status. We also now only load in previews of the full resolution photo. The full resolution photo is downloaded only when tapped to open. This significantly speeds up the import process.
