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.

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.
