NEW BUGS
- None (yet)

BUGS FIXED
- Same as listed down on official changelog.

REMAINING BUGS
1. Picture in Picture (PiP) broke.
Youtube and other apps that support PiP can't be activated properly in small PiP window (When using full screen gestures).

2. Black screen on video panel when minimizing app to floating window.
Steps to reproduce: Play Youtube video, swipe up to float the app, and black screen will emerge.

3. Dynamic font-weight feature doesn't work in Second Space (Make the entire UI appears thin).

4. Dark mode status bar blackened problem in force dark mode apps.

Heard the news that SD 845 devices will be stop from getting beta update on September 5th. Kinda disappointing because Mi 8 only got 2 years and 4 months of beta updates compared to other flagship (Mi 6 got 3 years+). Nothing can be done, it's Xiaomi's decision after all.

Anyway pretty good update this week! Love the old behaviour to expand notifications. But there are some hiccups on full screen gestures compared to previous versions.

Did Xiaomi say when the stable (Chinese, so EU too) version of MIUI 12 will be released?

Awesome work btw
