      other bug fixes to make your experience as enjoyable as possible.</p>\n<ul>\n  <li>Added HiDPI support for all images
      so everything looks nice and\n\t        sharp no matter how fancy your display is.</li>\n  <li>Fixed an issue where
      Vocal would not show you the time elapsed\n\t        or remaining in an episode immediately after relaunching the app.</li>\n
      \ <li>Reduced the animation time for switching between different\n\t        views so that it feels extra snappy.</li>\n
      \ <li>Gave the search results view a shave and a haircut. Two bits.</li>\n  <li>Fixed a few issues where Vocal would
      be grouchy about\n\t        showing certain episode descriptions.</li>\n  <li>When importing several podcasts the progress
      bar now stays\n\t        one size so you can actually judge the progress correctly.</li>\n  <li>You can now drag and
      drop items in the play queue to rearrange\n\t        their order.</li>\n  <li>Lots more checking to make sure that things
      exist so it won&apos;t\n\t        crash nearly as much (hopefully never).</li>\n</ul>"
