Most of todays update is compatibility related (again), fixing issues with various popular update ZIPs.
Additionally, lz4 compression (used when creating and restoring backups) is now multithreaded, which can provide a nice speed-up.
For Samsung users, generating a .tar.md5 with bootloaders and modem to flash through ODIN now includes partitions FlashFire cannot see or detect. This should fix missing bootloader issues on for example the S6.
warning* warning warning***
Something less fun to announce is that due to a bug in partition detection, some backups created in FlashFire v0.26 through v0.30 cannot be restored by 'installing' them in TWRP. This does not affect all backups, but it is hard to tell which ones will or will not work.
Of course, all of these backups are still restorable in FlashFire itself, but if you rely on TWRP for emergency restore if you mess up your system, you should create a new backup for this purpose.
