  • Fixes a crash with Settings pages on iOS 5.

  • Fixes issues with link buttons and stepper controls (-/+ buttons) and not working.
  • Fixes various bugs/crashes on earlier iOS versions.
  • Some all around spit and polish.

For developers:

  • HBTwitterCell now supports specifying a Twitter User ID, so you can ensure your Twitter buttons follow you around if you ever change your username.
  • HBPackageTableCell is now integrated with Parcility, ensuring the modern default repositories are now supported by the automatic icon fetcher, as well as the 600+ other third-party repositories Parcility indexes.
  • When tapping HBPackageTableCell, it will now prompt the user to select an installed package manager, or view the package online on Parcility.
  • HBLinkTableCell now prioritises Universal Links (web links redirecting to native apps) when opening links.
  • You can now hide the divider line below the navigation bar using a new HBAppearanceSettings property, showsNavigationBarShadow.
  • The Email Support button no longer awkwardly pushes an empty screen before the email composer appears. If you are directly using HBSupportController, please change to presenting modally rather than pushing, to ensure this effect is avoided.


  • Fixes crash when opening Cephei-powered settings.


  • Fixes a corrupted installation issue experienced by some users.

For developers:

  • To save space, Cephei headers are no longer included in deb releases. You can instead find them on GitHub.
