Happy New Year, and welcome to 2019, deviants! We hope everyone had a relaxing and fun holiday, and we can’t wait to dive into this year’s updates and fixes!
Before we get into this week’s change log, we’d like to inform you of some major upcoming Eclipse-related updates, which will be highlighted and discussed in separate journals outside of the regular change logs. Some of these major updates include:
Custom boxes / customization
Feedback & Watch
Additional Profile personalization
These are fairly significant updates to DeviantArt Eclipse that we look forward to communicating and sharing with you all in the upcoming weeks, so keep your eyes open! Without further delay, here are this week’s changes and bug fixes:
Embedding deviations and pasting thumb codes are back! Try pasting a deviation URL in a comment or a journal! (Popular request!)
You can now include a deviant’s avatar using the “Insert Emote” button. (Popular request!)
The top navigation bar now has a light theme!
You can now search for a specific artist’s deviations and other content by searching for “ @username”
When adding a deviations to a comment or journal using gallery mode, the editor now shows the limit and number of deviations chosen.
Fixed issue where Feedback would not be sorted correctly after you reach the end of each “page” of results.
Deleting deviations, status updates, journals now properly reloads the page.
Artist hover cards now appear when on usernames, not just avatars.
When rolling over your own avatar, the hover card no longer says “Message” and “Watch”
Adjusted size of the artist hover card to be more compact
On donation pools, the number 0 would overlay on the word “Goal” when you initially add the section.
When hovering over default donation pool bar, it shows “NaN%”.
The donation pool’s meter displayed as full when they were empty (0/0).
Keep Sharing Your Feedback!

Eclipse Change Log: August 14, 2019
What's Next for Eclipse: Custom Sections
Yeah and there hasn't been any changes regarding literature. People still can't upload art into their literature. Why say this is improving when it clearly has not? This is not so hard a fix. There is no excuse.
So far it's the only thing I'm worried about, since I put some work into finding the stamps and typing info in.
The huge single letter is still problematic. Can that be optional in future? I'm really looking forward to the future journal on literature.
Thanks for reading.
I just did a test submission in Eclipse to confirm that it still isn't possible to paste in formatting or edit literature deviations (have submitted bug reports).
Aslo, thumbs previews of literature deviations don't work at all anymore, same for status posts. Probably it's still in an early phase of development but the current Eclipse is a mess.
