V4.6.0 smoke testing

Hi folks,

I’d like to have some smoke testing before releasing v4.6.0 which has the following changes, as some features may affect the other features:

New feature

  • Support unsetting a tag from multiple notes at once (Thanks Halloleo)
  • Support YAML frontmatter (Experimental)


  • Blur before hiding the main window (Thanks Jasper)
  • Support selectFirstNote option in the following commands:
    • core:note-list-show-all-notes
    • core:note-list-show-notes-in-book
    • core:note-list-show-notes-with-tag
    • core:note-list-show-notes-with-status
  • Show plugin version number in Preference window (Thanks Sceptic)
  • Add “All Files” filter on import dialog (Thanks Nicole)
  • Update Electron to 7.1.13
  • Window won’t show when logged out
  • Handle anchor links in preview
  • Load CodeMirror language mode on demand
  • Highlight codeblocks in plugin readme


  • Some image attachments are not properly backed up
  • Insert " " between text token in note list view item (Thanks Koike-san)
  • (API) Babel configuration broken (Thanks Prescott and Jasper)
    • Now it uses core-js@3 properly, so you don’t need to add core-js@2 as your plugin dependency
    • The recent Electron does support the most of ES6 features like Object Spread without using Babel
  • (API) Should respect dismissable parameter of Notification Manager (Thanks Jasper)


@Yuko_Otawara, @jmerle, @Prescott_Murphy, @Nicole_Daniella,
Could you help me check if it works without any big regressions?
Thanks in advance!

I’ll do some testing on Windows 10 and Ubuntu 18.04 after work today (in about ~9 hours).


Things seemed good on macOS after some quick testing. Using ES6 syntax without explicit dependency on coreJS@3 in a plugin also didn’t blow up like it did previously!

Windows 10:

Everything works well, all my plugins work as expected and I can’t seem to break anything.

Ubuntu 18.04:

Doesn’t work, it seems to require glibc 2.28 while Ubuntu 18.04 is limited to 2.27 (libc6 == glibc):

$ ./inkdrop

[bugsnag] Uncaught exception, the process will now terminate…

Thank you for your help, @Prescott_Murphy and @jmerle!
Good to hear that it works well except for the Linux build.
I rebuilt it, so could you try it again?


I checked that it doesn’t require GLIBC_2.28 with a command:

objdump -T /tmp/.org.chromium.Chromium.* | grep GLIBC | sed -n 's/.*\(GLIBC_[0-9]\.[0-9]\+\).*$/\1/p' | sort -V | tail -n 1

The rebuilt version works without problems, same behavior as on Windows 10.

Sorry for the delayed response, all good from my end, didn’t have any issues starting it up and importing files.
