Well this is not feature, this is small design changes.
The counts are still visible on each list with the proper option, having the counts in the left menu brings nearly nothing useful and the performance impact was high. Give me one real use case of the need of global episode count seeing everywhere everytime?
I did not remove individual colors for each hosts at all, a small part of the header no more use that color that’s all, and that header was reduced in size to give more places for the favorites in left menu and future playlist support.
People always have problems to adapt to small changes, but in the end, the gains are always way over the problem to adapt for 99,999% of users. There’s no changes made at random or without reasons.
Yatse still have many many many more things than any others and is still 100% user driven, some users just still have problem understanding that there’s more people than just them
