This release is focused on issue fixing as well as polishing some recent features that were added in the prior release of AVChat 3.6.

Mobile Client Changes

  • Messages coming from the mobile client will now use the same fontsize set in the AVChat theme.
  • Banning mobile users is now possible. Users can be banned by IP or Usernames just like desktop users.
  • Mobile users can no longer join using an already used username. This works both ways, desktop users cannot join using a name used by a mobile user.

Bugfixes

  • Fixed issue which caused usernames that contained special characters to not display correctly in some instances (webcam requests, room invites, file uploads).
  • Fixed issue with room names that contained special characters not being displayed correctly in the mobile client.
  • Fixed issue with “Who is Typing” label not working properly.
  • Fixed issue with showMobileChatHistory setting not working.
  • Fixed issue with mobile client IPs not showing in the desktop client.
  • Fixed issue that caused [Create new room] button being enabled after you closed the [Edit Room] window even if room creation was disabled.
  • Fixed issue with error messages not being correctly relayed by Red5. It was always showing the same “Connection Failed, media server might be down…” error message. Now the appropriate error is sent.
  • Fixed issue with chat setting window getting blocked out by other windows in some use cases and not being able to use it anymore.
  • Fixed issue with users list not correctly scaling when the status bar was set to be hidden.
  • Fixed issue with webcam button being resized upon mouse scroll.
  • Fixed issue with Autoscroll chat setting not working.
