Publii hotfix 0.26.1 released; squashes bugs and improves navigation

The recent revamped update to Publii was the biggest change to the app's core since its inception, so it was inevitable that a few bugs would rear their ugly heads. Thankfully, our helpful users have kept us updated of any issues that they discovered, allowing our team to get their swatters out to crush the bugs and release this hotfix release that gets things under control.

Like with all our releases, to get access to these fixes you'll just need to grab the latest package from the frontpage, and the installer will take care of the update process. Special thanks should go to our users YoavMathias and 3b318f8a (nickname), who put in a lot of work testing the last Publii release and have been invaluable in discovering and reporting the issues they found.

So what's been fixed? As it happens, we have a convenient list of all the improvements and bugfixes below:
