4 thoughts on “iOS 4.9 is out”

  1. Just a question, is the Jingle XMPP protocol for VOIP calls encypted in OMEMO as well? There isn’t much documentation on VOIP in this app.

    1. VoIP is currently broken anyways. But we will update that code to be interoparable with Conversations et al and this will use WebRTC under the hood (which is encrypted by default)

      1. The current voip support uses jingle which was added to monal a decade ago and intended to work with google talk (haha). There have been at least two major changes to the way pushes happen on iOS since then and the voip code hasn’t been updated or tested a ton in the last 5 years
