dA made some awesome enhancements to deviantART muro as well! We've added several new tools, including the heavily requested Magic Wand tool! This comes with several enhancements to the overall selection and edit menu tools. Also added deviantART muro integration to Writer, allowing you to select and edit images in Writer documents directly in deviantART muro.

Bugs fixesEdit


  • On the Browse page, thumbnails did not always properly display in older browsers, such as Safari 5.0 and older, or Chrome 11 and older.
  • The top and bottom borders for transparent thumbnails looked misaligned in IE9 .
  • The ellipsis-based title cut off looked wrong on some thumbs. This has been changed to allow titles to force the width of the box.
  • The "background box" behind the thumbnails looked bad on backgrounds other than deviantART's standard color, such as on custom CSS in galleries and faves. It is now a slightly transparent white, so it blends with custom CSS better.
  • Stored deviations would show a 404 error for their creators.
  • The Share button for Tumblr would open the Tumblr share tool in both a popup window and the original deviation window.
  • Margins on some types of journal deviation pages were either too wide or too narrow.
  • On deviation pages, the text box on the Share modal for notes did not scroll.
  • Usernames were briefly not appearing under thumbnails in member Galleries and Favourites.
  • oAuth app registrations lacked callback url whitelist requirements.
  • Some Groups were unable to update blog rules text field for blog module when configured with specific combination of permissions.
