Subject: [otf-active] Delta Chat June 2020: new releases, search, app stores, burner-messages ...
Delta Chat's has done a full round of releases on Android, iOS and Desktop,
see https://delta.chat/en/2020-06-24-releases for details and screenshots.
Note that the F-droid releases is still not there due to
build problems on their side which we are trying to help resolve.
Delta Chat Desktop is now also available on Microsoft and Apple stores --
this took many rounds of interaction/buereaucracy and fixes. phew!
Speaking of desktop, there finally is SEARCH (Android had it for a while),
a primary feature many users asked for.
WebRTC audio/video support is progressing nicely on Desktop currently.
Ephemeral messaging ("self-destruct" or "dissappearing" messages)
is now integrated in Desktop and Android development versions.
We aim for a public release in July after some more testing ...
We've done remote and now also a small physical UX testing round
in Eastern Europe and continue to collect and address feedback from
various circles, including our lively online one https://support.delta.chat
There is a new much improved version of our server-side "burner account" tool,
see https://github.com/deltachat/mailadm for details.
take care and best wishes for everyone,
