    A 3in1 surprise! Movim 0.17.1, Movim Android 0.17.0.0 and Movim Account Panel

    Timothée Jaussoin · pubsub.movim.eu / Movim · Sunday, 22 March, 2020 - 15:19 edit · 2 minutes

A bit more than a month after the #Movim 0.17.1 Catalina release I'm pleased to deliver two new releases and a new tool to all the movim.eu users. Let's dive in all those new exciting features.

Movim 0.17.1

This minor #release focuses on a few things. We could call it an "integration release". In fact most of the work done were to help with the new Debian package and for the new Android app release.

Regarding the Debian package, I'd like to personally thanks Dominik George aka Natureshadow from Teckids e.V. and mirabilos for their continuous work on the dependency packaging, patches and general maintenance of the .deb. They were both added in this release on the Core Contributors page. Thanks!

Upload widget improvements

The #Upload #widget, that is used to upload files and pictures during the Posts and Messages publication has been redesigned. You can now drag and drop files from your explorer directly in the drop area. The picture visualization has also been improved and now display more information about it.

Integration with the new Movim Android release

The Movim #Android app has not been updated for a while. This new release improves the integration experience one step further.

In fact, the top bar is now transparent and integrates with the rest of the user interface. The pod switching button is not shown anymore during the startup process (that was slowing down the launch of the app) but directly in the navigation bar (you will need to upgrade both Movim and Movim Android to handle this feature). This allows Movim to launch in only a few seconds on a standard 4G connection.

Movim now integrates even more within the Android UI

On the Chat page, it is now possible to close the conversations using a simple drag-to-left movement. Similar to what you can find on Telegram for example.

Movim Account Panel

Last but not least, all the movim.eu #XMPP accounts have now access to a new panel. Available on api.movim.eu/accounts it allows some account wise configuration to complete some features unavailable client side.

To authenticate a "one click link" mechanism has been added. Once your identifier entered this authentication link will be send directly by chat allowing you to access your Account Panel.

Through this panel you'll be able to list all the existing files you ever uploaded using your XMPP account, in the future you'll be able to also delete them.

Email to XMPP

This Panel also contains an exclusive feature, the possibility to receive #emails on your XMPP account.

This feature is only working one way, in fact it's our mascot, and now postwoman Miho that will take care of delivering the emails as chat messages directly to you. Please notice that the attachments are not forwarded and we are not applying any form of SPAM filtering on them. The emails are transferred as it in their textual version to you.

That's all folks! And don't forget, to prevent the spread of the #COVID19, stays safe at home!

    How about Movim and OMEMO for 1to1 Chats?

    I want to be able to have a collada file as my avatar so it can be 3D in WebGL html5. Then, if a browser cannot display it, the old default jpeg/gif is displayed instead. The filesize of the collada file could be small. A rotating cube could be a cool collada file to have. A QR code to one's movim blog could be one of the 6 sides.

    https://api.movim.eu/accounts/ It is very cool but, having completed it, I cannot find that file storage area now days later, even if I use this hyperlink in a web-browser. The cog "config" icon does not show it either. What is the correct hyperlink to see files now? Cheers. What is the file-size limit? Is it a total of 5 megabytes for all files? I also think running a full movim server on a old smartphone (such as a nexus5) via "PostmarketOS" would be very very cool indeed. If anybody wants to release an online (easy) installer to do that for "PostmarketOS", it would be awesome. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PostmarketOS

    Great to hear the good folks at Teckids e.V. continue to maintain the Debian package.
    I'm curious about the new email feature, is there some webpage or docs explaining what this does ?
