Push notification tester: You can now test your push notifications via the dashboard UI.

Improved

Android Push Notifications: Priority changed to high, which helps apps that aren't running in the background.

Emojis 😲: Updated to include newer emojis.

Dashboard Settings: Improved layout to give saving settings more visible.

Improved UX for autoscrolling new messages.

Security and performance improvements.

Fixed

System messages suppressed in emails: Fixed a bug where system messages containing contact information were incorrectly being suppressed.

Faster, better, more secure

Added: You can now run TalkJS on a custom subdomain (eg chat.yourcompany.com). This way, no network requests go to talkjs.com at all. (Enterprise plan only - get in touch if you're interested).

Improved

  • The Chat UI got much faster 🚀. It's snappier and uses less battery than before.
  • Made it possible to run TalkJS with a stricter Content-Security-Policy (docs)
  • "Send message" REST API endpoint now returns message IDs in the response payload
  • Made dashboard "Role editor" navigation clearer and easier to use

Fixed:

  • Sending a large message would not always scroll the message list down to the bottom correctly.
  • Inbox Feed Filters would sometimes not show sufficient data in the conversation list, or the "load more" button would be unavailable
  • showChatHeader: false was ignored in some cases, making it impossible to hide the header.
  • In the enlarged shared image view, the close button would display as "⨯" and not as "X" (on sites/apps that did not use UTF-8 encoding)
  • Email attachment file sizes were sometimes incorrectly reported in the Chat UI
  • CSS syntax errors in the Theme Editor could break the Chat UI without an actionable error. Now, it shows a useful error in the devtools console.
