Latest Release Notes

4.2 - June 9, 2021, 7:27 a.m.

I’m working on fixing an issue where uploaded images cannot be searched on SauceNAO and IQDB. They seem to be blocking Imgur URLs because of recent events ( ).
So experimentally changed the image uploader from Imgur to is a private image uploader with auto-delete feature. Get Sauce sets the images to be deleted in 10 minutes by default.
If you run into any issues, please send me feedback and use Get Sauce 4.1 or earlier.
