- Large servers perform better in general. CPU and network usage is about the same regardless of server size (whether a hundred people or a hundred-thousand people).

- Discord uses a lot less battery now. Longer live your battery life. Also, the iOS app loads faster. Android imminent.

- New authentication screens are sexy af. Go check out how wavy they are.
- Added a volume slider to the inline media player because that llama video someone sent me was loud and confusing.
- The instant invite pop up now has user suggestions for speed running server invites. UX BOOOOOOST :rocket:
- Turned off a few lights in dark theme. There’s more dark now. That’s how that works.
