The one with all the fixes

The last two weeks we've been focused on bug fixing, performance and reliability. We've always taken pride in the speed of Outline and keeping the app fast requires constant ongoing attention and maintenance. One place that hadn't been optimized in a while was the initial javascript bundle download size, which has now dropped from 2.8Mb to just 700Kb.

Some of this updates improvements (Marked with a [os]) are brought to you by open source contributions, for this we're very thankful!
