Logos 7.8

7.8 ( was released on July 27, 2017.

This build is an update to 7.8 which was shipped on Monday and unpublished when we realized there was a crash affecting some users on startup.

We have fixed the crash with this build. If you had already updated to 7.8 and your app was working as expected there should be no changes. If this is your first time on 7.8 you’ll see all of the improvements and fixes for the first time.

This wasn’t released as 7.8 SR-1 due to an internal error with our publishing process.
