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.

View Current MAU & Various Bug Fixes

Added: the current amount of Monthly Active Users to the billing page.

Fixed: Issue with headers not expanding when the Panel style has higher padding than the default.

Fixed: Issue where the inbox would show no conversations when a feed filter was applied, even when there were conversations that match the filter.

Several other bug fixes.

Added: New pricing model for customers signed up after March 24 2021. If you have signed up before this, then you can remain on the pricing plan you signed up with. View new pricing.
