Event listener for when the main app window is hidden

On Mac, when you close the main window, we hide the main window instead of destroying it. This allows us to show the window quickly when a user click's the dock icon.

Panel windows are now supported on macOS.

What is a panel window? A panel window allows you to pop up a window without taking focus away from the app that you're currently in. So now a panel window will behave more like Spotlight.

Now, you can toggle all app windows (not just one) from the menubar/tray menu.


Now we show a Windows, Mac or Linux icon next to settings that are only available on some Operating Systems.

You can now make a window not appear in the taskbar on Windows. This is particularly useful for panel windows and tray windows.


  • Fix: Command-q was blocking all apps from closing when running a menubar/tray app with minimize to tray enabled.
