iOS 3.1 Beta Available

I have made the latest iOS Beta available to the public.  This link is also permanently on the left of this site.  This is a beta so you will see debugging messages as well as a debug log at the bottom of settings titled ‘Log’  this will let you view everything the app is doing.  If you encounter any issues feel free to look there and send me the last few lines (make sure not to send anything involving authentication)

Planning the next releases

It’s been a while since the last release. I am planning out what will be in the next Mac and iOS clients.   I was hoping to have OEMEO but it hasn’t been sufficiently  tested yet, so I am turning it off until the following release.   I will have an open beta for iOS 3.1 soon. This will be a GDPR update  but along with it comes the new rich links, a more compressed chat ui as well as the share sheet.  Mac clients will see the Mojave dark mode and a share sheet.

Links will look different

I’ve been focusing some of my efforts as of late on things that make Monal feel more modern. There are parts of the app I haven’t touched in 5-6 years and expectations have changed in those years.  The inline images in 3.0 was very well received and I am following that up with inline link previews.  If you have used any other modern messaging client this will be very familiar to you.  XMPP doesn’t need to feel like its form the 90s.
