ChatSecure v4.2.0 - Group Chat
First of all, thank you to all of the monthly supporters! Your contributions have been a great motivator to keep the release cycle moving along at a regular pace, from master branch, to TestFlight, to App Store. Not a supporter yet? It’s easy! You can start supporting development directly in the app. Remember, sustainable open source starts with you! ❤️
This version contains numerous improvements to the existing group chat functionality: unencrypted media transfers (XEP-0363), brand new participant list, and enhanced stability and reliability. There is still a lot of work to be done, but it has stabilized enough for a general release. It was designed with small, private groups in mind, so it hasn’t been tested with very large groups, and “anonymous” groups are currently unsupported.
Up next is support for XEP-0313: Message Archive Management, which will allow you to use the same account on multiple devices, and is a prerequisite for OMEMO group chats.
