The official Windows 10 Disqus app has updated to Version 4.2.0 and has added a host of new features and big fixes. Among the biggest changes are improvements to moderating which will make it easier to ban internet trolls and analyse comments. Here’s the official release notes:

New Features:

Added support for Shadow Banning and Timeout Banning

Performance and design optimizations to comment text rendering

Moderators will now see words in their restricted words highlighted in comments

Moderators will now see flag labels next to comments

Bug Fixes:

Fixed a bug that would prevent inserting links

Removing banned users works

Prevent restart popup from appearing the first time you visited your App settings

Other small bug fixes

In addition to this main app update, the Disqus Beta app has now been discontinued, most likely due to the number of features the Disqus app now has.
