Open graph cards: When you paste links to IFDB games on Facebook, Twitter, or the intfiction.org forum, the links will include a little card with the game’s title, description, and cover art.

HiDPI cover art: On high-resolution screens, we now show the cover art at a higher resolution, so it looks sharp and crisp.

Mobile improvements: We fixed a number of bugs on mobile, including adding back the Play Online button, and adding back the missing links in the navigation bar at the top of every page.

Search by playlist and wishlist: You can now use new search operators to search games that you've added to your "I've played it" playlist, your wish list, and your "not interested"/"won't play" list. Use played:yes|no willplay:yes|no and wontplay:yes|no for these searches. (The operators have no effect when you're logged out.)
