Eclipse Change Log: April 17, 2019
In this week’s change log, we've implemented a number of bug fixes and improvements. Stay tuned for more, and keep the bug reports and feature requests coming! Change Log The search bar on the main navigation menu now appears more prominently, making it easier to find. Shop, Groups, and Forum are now available under the "More" menu. On the Commissions page, the username and avatar of the artists displayed incorrectly until you clicked on them. Fixed issue where avatar crop tool displayed as a rectangle in Firefox. Fixed issues where “about me” section of profile would have layout issues after adding a gallery of images. Fixed minor design issues with the submenus on browse and search. Commission request notifications now display emoticons properly. Fixed issue where deviants under 18 would see the toggle to turn on mature content (though it would give an error upon toggling). Keep Sharing Your Feedback! In addition to these updates and bug fixes are smaller improvements we’ve made as
Eclipse Change Log: April 11, 2019
In this week’s change log, we've added custom titles for custom sections, added five spotlights for all deviants and addressed a number of bug fixes and improvements. Stay tuned for more, and keep the bug reports and feature requests coming! Custom Titles for Your Custom Sections You can now add a custom title for your Custom Section! Known issue: Upon backspacing the last character of your title, it replaces the field with “Custom”. If you experience this issue, a workaround is to simply highlight the text and type your desired text. More Spotlights! All deviants can now add up to five spotlight sections on their profile! Change Log New keyboard shortcuts: You can now use CTRL/CMD+Enter or TAB+Enter when writing a comment to immediately submit it. Fixed issue where comment field in Feedback would be too small on journals, status updates, and polls, causing some elements to overlap. Galleries with zero deviations in them did not show when editing your galleries. Fixed issue
Eclipse Change Log: July 10, 2019
In this week’s change log, we've re-implemented favourites search in Eclipse, added comment like notifications, and made a number of bug fixes and smaller improvements. Stay tuned for more, and keep the bug reports and feature requests coming! Favourites Search is Back! Search in favourites is finally available in Eclipse! Simply click the search icon to search through your own — or another artist’s — favourites. Comment Like Notifications You’ll now get notified when another deviant likes a comment you made. This notification is also available on the classic site. Change Log Comments in Feedback were breaking mid-word for a period of time. Watch recommendations now allows you to watch deviants individually instead of requiring you to multi-select deviants. Improved the look of the comment box to tighten up the look and make it a bit clearer where you can type. Background patterns would not be saved on Custom Sections. Reduced the size of arrows when navigating between deviations

‘Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the house,
Not a deviant was clicking
On a touchpad or mouse.

Deviations were packed
In their boxes with care
In hopes re-designers
Soon would be there.

The deviants were nestled
All soft in their Profile
In hopes that a change
Would come soon with style.

They’d heard mysterious stories
From the Betas upstairs,
And they knew something special
Soon would be theirs.

New dark mode, new light mode,
Love Meter, and more!
New backgrounds, Profile headers,
More storage for Core!

One curious deviant,
Sketchbook tight in their grips,
Couldn’t wait one day longer,
They must see Eclipse!

They ran up the staircase,
Threw open the door,
Awoke all the betas,
And all of this for:

A glimpse of the new version.
A screenshot, a peek.
The clatter woke a beta,
Who started to speak.

“We’re working some kinks out
So it’ll be perfect when
It’s released to more soon.
There’s DeviantArtEclipse.com till then!”

They bid each other good night
After exchanging usernames,
And they’d just settled down
To do a llama exchange.

When they both felt a sentiment
They heard deep in their heart:
“Merry Christmas to all
And to all a good art!”

Our sincere thanks ♥


2018 has been a transformative year at DeviantArt. While we always like to have a little fun around the holiday season, it’s nice to take a step back and remember how grateful we are to have the community that we do, supporting us by supporting each other, and generally helping DeviantArt become even more fully the nurturing place we all call home.

We have another big year ahead of us, and can’t wait to share with you what's in store. Until then, we want to thank you all for the gift you give us each and every day: being there for your fellow deviants. Your spirit keeps our digital hearts burning bright, and we can’t thank you enough for spending your time on this slice of the Internet we all share.

Wishing you and yours health and happiness in 2019!

~Heidi, and the entire DeviantArt Team
