Delta Chat 0.16.0 with Ad-hoc-groups; new Mailing list and IRC
March 19, 2018 by Björn Petersen
Delta Chat supports so called ad-hoc groups now - in short, groups can be created by any non-delta-client and are filed by the list of recipients. Apart from that, “ad-hoc groups” work like usual Delta groups. See issue #69 for more details and discussions.
- Allow group creation though contact requests
- Always display the sending time in the chat list; the list itself is sorted by receiving time and “Message info” shows both times now
- Indicate ommited parts of mails by “[…]”
- Highlight the subject in the “Message info”
For a complete list of changes and for the download links, see downloads. As always, the version is available immediately on Github and on F-Droid in a few days.
This version requires the additional right to access the camera. This is needed for the upcoming QR code scanning options which can already be tested in this version, see commit 74ffbf4.
