  • SI-343: A race condition in the app start-up meant that sometimes we didn't show the critical alert permission.

Bug Fixes

  • SI-469: The back button on the message thread screen was being replaced which then failed to work when navigating back through screens.
  • SI-396: Clicking on a message with an image and a caption containing numbers was incorrectly handled. We followed the phone number link rather than show the attachment.
  • SI-395: When multi-selecting on the message thread screen the message bubbles would change size which caused the whole screen to jump. We now slide the message bubbles to the right and avoid the re-size.

  • SI-340: Backgrounding and foregrounding the app when a dialog was displayed would cause the dialog to move to a non-centered position.

  • SI-331: Sometimes the ring tone would continue to play after a call was accepted.
  • SI-329: The layout of forwarded cells displaying incorrectly.
  • SI-324: When forwarding a message the in chat notification would be sent as a P2P message rather than appearing in the group conversation.
  • SI-311: We now correctly interpret various string formats when displaying links in the message text.
  • SI-284: Missed call records were not being correctly updated if you stayed on the Recents call screen.
  • SI-47: We've changed the ordering of messages so that they correctly reflect when the were sent/received. The old way was causing messages to re-order when sending multiple messages.
