The only thing I noticed immediately (based on the changelog) was the Altitude card and the "use NEXUS for US check-in" option. I can do a proper test of the latter option on Thursday night.
I don't have any reason to believe they are following semver properly, just being hopeful.

I only see 5.0.3 in the store (even tried a us-west-2 AWS vm) and apkmirror, so it does appear that its being rolled out slowly.

They're almost certainly doing a staged rollout, and I happen to be lucky enough to be in whatever percentage is getting it.

I'm a little surprised they'd do anything late on Dec 23, but if they're confident it's better than the previous version...

Heh, the date does feel like a Friday commit/release and run

I see 5.1.2 available in the Android app store. If I download it, I wonder whether it will still give me alerts for flights I was never booked on but that are the same flight number as one I took the day before...

Ugh. No update for me yet...

I am sure someone will post when it comes for iPhone users! So I’ll keep an eye on the thread.

Based on what Adam showed upthread, I'm not sure I am in such a rush.

I think I shall let the 'Droid users beta test QA this for me.

"Droid" is a trademark licensed by Verizon. If the phone isn't sold by Verizon, it's not a Droid. I can't imagine there are many Verizon users on this forum.

Those are on the previous version of the app, I was asking facetiously whether the new version would fix those things I still haven't bothered to update.

I see January 2020 so that may be fixed.

I haven't had any flights since this version, so I'm unsure about the next-day notification. I was also notified about flights I'd cancelled weeks ago.

My bad.

I didn't mean to confuse all of the other copyright lawyers out there who make up a significant proportion of this forum with my obscure reference.

My point is that I don't know any Droid users on the AC forum. There might be some, but I wouldn't be surprised if there aren't any.
