Update to MetaChat Viewer, as per Thomas Dietzer:

Update 1.2.9103 ready for approval
4. April 2019worldchat2017
MS released the update for Visual Studio on time so here we go:
All over speed increased – especially because of the new event management.
If you encounter a delay in message receive/send this is not direct related to MetaChat.
It´s either a common SL problem or simply because your network isn´t as fast as recommended by LL.

Global
  • removed InWorldz from the default grid list (USER REPORTED)
  • problem with privacy text selection cleared (USER REPORTED)
  • event system reworked to call simulator events only once to reduce server/app communication load
  • checked against the new iPhone XR screen resolution
GROUPS
  • sometimes search groups give empty rows, disable selection to avoid crash
  • problem with activate titles and show active title cleared
    (you cannot change your title too often shortly)
CHAT
  • in all chat windows you can now pinch zoom (two fingers move) text
    (reset: leave chat and enter again)
    (MapChat, IM, GroupIM) (USER FEATURE REQUEST)
MAPCHAT
  • problem with “show avatars near me” when tapping the top bar, cleared
BACKGROUND MODE
  • settings: change if you do not want notices/alarms while in background
    (USER FEATURE REQUEST)

Update to MetaChat Viewer, as per Thomas Dietzer:
Update 1.2.9104
17. May 2019worldchat2017
Sorry but 1.2.9104 got rejected and about some family drama i didn´t notice.
This time the update is big because the whole code (and the libraries – around 60.000 lines of code) where checked with external testing-tools.
One thing: There is no mobile SL/Opensim. MetaChat is a viewer like any other PC viewer with the same system requirements (network ….) it just runs on mobile devices. Switching cells, unstable (packet loss) connections cannot be supported. This is a server side requirement.

Changelist
  • improved “server disconnect” detection
FRIENDLIST
  • loading friendlist set waittime from 60 seconds to 100 for slower connections
  • use cached textures to increase loading speed of friends and profiles
MESSAGES
  • waittime for UUID set from 10 to 30 seconds for slower connections
IM
  • double check the UUID for receiver
  • added extendedIMformat description
  • timing for typing start/stop adjusted
  • problem with delete IMs solved
GROUPS
  • increased loading speed of group-profile
  • CRITICAL PROBLEM: count of unread IMs calculated wrong while in GroupsView, resolved
FRIENDS
  • use cached textures to increase loading speed of friends and profiles
ACCOUNT
  • limiting the password to 16 chacters (SL servers do not accept more)
  • check password for spaces (not allowed)

Update to MetaChat Viewer, as per Thomas Dietzer:
Update 1.2.9105

Sorry this update was delayed because Microsoft updated Visual Studio and that broke some of the “ancient” web connection SL servers use for the connection.
Had to make a complete rollback and re-invent the “wheel”.
  • adjusted icons sizes for smaller devices
    MAP
  • switch between mapview and landmarks
    in mapview the simwide avatars are visible (scrollable list)
    select an avatar in avatarlist marks it on the map
  • rearranged view to make room for dual list
INVENTORY
  • could not load worn tab in inventory, solved
RLV
  • sometimes did not work, was related to “current outfit folder”
GROUPS
  • title can only be changed in active group

Update to MetaChat Viewer, as per Thomas Dietzer:
Update 1.2.9106
Please check the new message cap limit for SL servers, this can lead to problems
sending/receiving messages - but thats out of my control

- Connection less sensitive about network problems (can slow down the app)
- Workaround for crash during send/receive message should be cleared (bug in MySQL)

MAP
---
- fixed crash when walk outside simulator borders
- fly doesn´t shoot you into oblivion, hold the button goes up - release stay at this height

CHAT
----
- open chat does not scroll to bottom at incoming messages or when switch to chat window
- incoming message from Security Orbs, Vendors showing UUID are translated into usernames
e.g. "Report from secondlife:///app/agent/xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx/agent sent" translates
"Report from John Doe sent"

GROUP
-----
- muted GroupIM are not displayed anymore

IM
--
- fixed: after start all unread messages where loaded but not announced (badge counter)

Reporter's note: While the note says this app was rejected, it seems to still be downloadable...so I'm not sure what is up with this release.
