- Improved the subtitle text for `Change Color(s)`. If only two colors are chosen when generating a multicolored GIF, the color names will be separated by an `&` symbol. If three or more colors are chosen, the color names will be separated by commas and the last color in the list will be separated by an `&` symbol.

- Added `Supported by Swing Updater` subtitle text for the `Check for Updates` option.

- Added a new icon into the `Circles` category named `Circled Blank`. This icon does not have a glyph whatsoever and only utilizes a shortcut icon background color instead. The new glyph can be found at the bottom of the list in the `Circles` category.

- Removal of an unnecessary `Otherwise` action block followed by the action after it before the `End If` action block.

- This update comes with a total increase of +12 actions used in the shortcut.

Shortcuts Icon Downloader v4.0 is finally here bringing the biggest changes to the shortcut since v3.0!


- Fixed

* Fixed the bug in which a notification would pop up stating, `The color has been excluded from the color selection.` This bug would only occur under this case scenario:

1. Generate a GIF icon by choosing multiple colors.
2. Select `Change Color/s`
3. Then select `Solid Color (JPG)`
4. Final result would be that pesty notification.

* Fixed a bug with being prompted to input `Seconds Per Photo` when only selecting only a single color or none at all then pressing `Done` for `Multiple Colors (GIF)`.

* Fixed a bug where `Make a vCard Menu` wouldn’t dynamically update to `Add to vCard Menu`.


- Removed:

* Removed the notification stating that the `Glyph Colors has been changed to (color chosen)` when picking a new color for `Change Theme Color`.

* Removed the notification stating how many icons are being generated after selecting a category.

* Removed 2 (*hopefully useless/unused/unnecessary*) actions in the repeat loop for generating images for a multi-colored GIF.


- Changed/Added:

* `Change Glyph Colors` option on the main menu has been renamed to `Change Theme Color`. This option also now has a subtitle stating which color is currently selected for use. Example: `Current Color: Cerulean`

* The main menu now shows how many icons are in each category to choose from as a subtitle for each category name.

* `Change Glyph` option now has a subtitle that states which glyph you have selected by name.

* `Change Color/s` option now has a subtitle that states which color/s you have selected. If you have generated a multicolored icon with 2 or more colors, color names in the subtitle are separated by a comma. Color names may run off of the menu prompt option if it exceeds the text limit.

* `Copy Base64 Encoded Text` has been renamed to `Copy Base64` for a cleaner menu appeal.

* `Change Color/s` menu item has been modified to be updated dynamically based on whether you chose to generate a solid icon or a multi-colored GIF icon.

* `Change Glyph & Color/s` has been renamed to `Change Glyph & Colors`. It only makes sense because you can choose between a solid icon or multi-colored icon after selecting a new glyph.

* `Make/Add to vCard Menu` now dynamically updates its own menu item name based on whether or not you have `BEGIN:VCARD` copied to the beginning of your device’s clipboard. You will either see `Make a vCard Menu` or `Add to vCard Menu` for this option now!

* The shortcut will now think you’ve selected the option `Solid Color (JPG)` if you’ve only selected a single color for `Multiple Colors (GIF)`.

* You’re no longer prompted to set the `Seconds per Photo` for a generated multi-colored GIF when choosing to `Change Glyph`. If you need to adjust the seconds per photo value, you can do so using the new `Change Speed` option.

* Added a menu prompt to `Select all colors initially` or to `Don’t select all colors initially` when chosen to generate a multicolored GIF icon.

* Added `Change Speed` option that is included in the end menu of the shortcut if you’ve chosen to generate a multicolored GIF. The menu option subtitle will show your current speed of the GIF you have generated. The subtitle will also dynamically update when you change the speed value.


- Other Notes:

* Credits go to @gianflo#2543 on Discord for helping with most of this update. This update would not have been possible without his contributions!

* This update brings an increase of +78 actions compared to v3.2 and uses a total of 420 actions.

* The shortcut versions v3.3, v3.5, & v3.6 have been deleted from RoutineHub and the shortcut has been updated from v3.2 —> 4.0 as a bundled all-in-one update.

- You can provide input for `Seconds Per Photo` for a GIF generated when choosing `Change Glyph`.

- `SPP.txt` is now saved & stored to the device’s iCloud Drive. This is used to save and retrieve the `Seconds Per Photo` provided input for generating GIF icons.

The long awaited v3.0 of Shortcuts Icon Downloader is finally here! Here is what’s new:

- The `Settings` menu has been removed from the main menu.

- `Icon Type: Solid/GIF` has been removed completely and rather built into the shortcut’s framework! This means that you can now first choose a glyph, and rather if you’d like it to be a still solid-colored icon (`JPG`), or a multi-colored icon (`GIF`). You can then select the color/s you’d like to use for your generated icon background color!

- `Save As: Photos/vCard Menu/Base64 Encoded Text` has also been removed as an option from the now removed `Settings` menu.

- `Change Glyph Colors` has also been removed as an option from the now removed `Settings` menu, and added as a main menu option.

- `Preferences.json` is no longer saved & stored in your device’s iCloud Drive. It is based on user preference whether to remove the file or not if they’ve had a previous version of this shortcut.

- A brand new menu has been added to the shortcut after generating your icon! You can choose between these new options:
* Make/Add to vCard Menu
* Save to Photos
* Copy Base64 Encoded Text
* Change Glyph
* Change Color/s
* Change Glyph & Color/s

- This update comes with an increase of 122 actions (333 actions in total). NOTE: This update took a huge rewrite of the shortcut. Hence, the wait time for this release.
