1.2.4089/1.2.3086 progress bars replaced with pie progress bars

The new pie bars are tiny, and it is much harder to tell how far through something you actually are. Is there a way to switch back to the old progress bars which I preferred but I can't figure out how to go back and would like to.

I don't think we're going to

I don't think we're going to be able to switch back to the old progress bars, but I'll probably tweak the existing ones over time to improve them.

I like to sort my podcasts by

I like to sort my podcasts by how far through them I am, I know kind of OCD but the old bars made it easy to compare one to another as you slid one past another on the list, the new ones it is very hard to do that. I hope that this new method will be tweaked to improve that, overall though I'd rather have the old bars back. I am guessing you moved to the new pies to lower the real estate dedicated to the progress bar?

Yep, the circles show both

Yep, the circles show both new/inprogress state and percent listened, so it saves some space.

Wierd how I'm just now seeing

Wierd how I'm just now seeing these and this thread is two months old, but a problem I'm seeing is that new but not downloaded is the same color as new and downloaded. I thought there used to be a visual way of determining that other than the (also now tiny) download arrow. Also I don't like the pie shapes because they don't show any rate information, which was useful at times. My $0.02.

In the next release, the current episode will have an orange circle,

I agree with you on the pie

I agree with you on the pie charts - I don't see the point of them and it's basically a step back in functionality/aesthetics. I'm glad the people at Doggcatcher are constantly working on their product (its come a long way since I started using it 4 or so years ago), but Ive noticed that they don't subscribe to the 'if it ain't broke don't fix it' line of thought.
