What to Expect from Open Beta
It’s good to remember that Beta Builds are a pre-release version of the final software and may be unstable, lack features and generally not function as expected. It’s important you’re aware of this before participating. Open Beta can be fun and hugely rewarding, but it can also be frustrating. If you want to join in the process-welcome aboard! If the Open Beta is not for you, that's okay, too. You can change your mind at any time and return to the version of Palringo you’re used to.
A new way to follow
We're making some changing to contacts in 8.7. Now, you will be able to "follow" another user. This means...
- If you create an account and have not yet set an avatar, an avatar will be generated for you
- Your favourites, blocked and contact list now operate independently. For example, you could be blocked, and a favourite, and a contact!
- The blocked list has its own page, rather than a section in the contact list
- The member list opens the actions dialog
The Universal Message Board (or UMB), is a screen you will see when you open up Palringo. It will display information such as recent updates/improvements, as well as a link to a relevant Blog post/FAQ page detailing features in more detail.
Chat Dock is removed 8.7. We will be replacing it with a much simpler Chat Switching solution. Thanks for your patience while we make this improvement.
That's everything for Palringo 8.7 Open Beta for iOS.
