A day or two ago, Apple silently forced TLS only on gateway.sandbox.push.apple.com, which is used by developers to test push notification systems. The production system has not changed (yet). I suspect this was a reaction to the heart bleed bug. While they have said that none of their services were impacted it seems curious that this would happen at the same time.
If you are experiencing push issues on the sandbox (particularly disconnects), make sure you are using TLS. You can verify that your push certs are working ok with APNS pusher ( https://github.com/blommegard/APNS-Pusher ).
Push sharp users should update.
Is anyone still having connection problems? Please let me know.
Monal is unique on iOS because it is able to fully multi task without using any private APIs. However, I stumbled upon this after setting up the iOS openVPN client and was amazed at how it worked. It actually hooks into the native VPN interface using Apple authorized private APIs. If you are an iOS developer, this is an absolutely fascinating read. I didn’t know this was even possible!
I hope these fixes resolve most of the major outstanding issues:
1. Fixed compatibulity with SSL off
2. Fixed old style SSL issues
3. Fix for compatibility with telepathy library clients
4. chinese keyboard input fixed
5. MUC compatibility improved
