I have released iOS 4.1 that has the temporary fix for notifications in ios13. I am now working on 4.2 which should have a lots of fixes to long running issues. I hope this update also improves muc experience. The work I am doing is part of my long planned Continue Reading
I will release the update that I have been testing or 4.1. This will have reliable pushes again but will not have the message text. Hopefully 4.2 will have reliable pushes with the message content in iOS 13.
I can’t figure out what’s going on with ios13 and pushes. It’s highly inconsistent and doesn’t match documentation. There is a new beta for 4.1 available that is using a new push server. The pushes are generic “new message” indicators but are 100% reliable. I will improve it

There are new betas for mac and iOS that address many OMEMO issues people have seen. The feedback has been positive and will try to get both out to production soon. I am also trying to figure out why comments are turned off on this blog now. It wasn’t intentional. Continue Reading
iOS 13 will restrict the ability of VOIP apps to run in the background. This will impact Monal. If you haven’t followed this saga it has been a sequence of changes from iOS 2, iOS 4 and then iOS 10. Looks like facebook has been abusing this privilege to monitor Continue Reading
