This update is focused on making changes and solving issues based on the feedback about the last version 3.5.1, received from you, our clients.

New Settings And Functionality

  • Implemented new setting thumbnailImageShape which controls the shape of the avatars in all the areas (users list, status bar, textchat). By default it is round.
  • Implemented new setting hideTextChat which controls whether or not the text chat area is shown. Along with this the older setting enableAudioVideoOnlyMode has been removed completely, but it’s functionality can still be obtained combining some settings together including the newly added hideTextChat. The idea behind this change was to eliminate any kind of possible conflicts that would’ve occurred if enableAudioVideoOnlyMode was activated and other settings like allowVideoStreaming was also set separately. To give you an idea on how AVChat can be setup to obtain the same or similar effects you can view the Live stream setup documentation.

Revised Settings

  • Older setting showJLButton became new showJLMessages setting.
  • Older setting showPreviewButton became new previewEnabled setting.
  • Older setting showIgnorePMsButton became new ignorePMEnabled setting.
  • Older setting blockBuzzButtonEnabled became new blockBuzzEnabled setting.

Their functionality has been changed accordingly to match their names.
