Description

It has been requested by someone by email and by another user on the market.
OTR (off the record) is a protocol to secure communication, focused on instant messaging.
It's already implemented in a lot of different xmpp clients (adium, pidgin, gajim, kopete ...) by plugins or directly in the trunk.

Hi,

Even if OTR is not implemented, it would be nice to have something that detects it and say something back to the sender.

On my desktop I have OTR and I use it with some of my contacts, and when I switch to my phone (even sometimes not disconnecting the desktop, since we have priorities), I get encoded messages on the phone and I cannot say anything else than "send it again not encoded please".

This is very annoying :)

Thank you!

Yes, the otr repo was merged with the trunk one week ago, so now you can test it through our nightlybuilds.
I'm not aware of bugs on the otr part, so it could bo as stable as the last trunk without otr patches.
If you could beta test it, it could be really useful since I haven't so many contact with otr :)

As said in the wiki, the last nightlybuild could be downloadable from this link : http://www.beem-project.com/Beem-debug.apk

Thanks. But apparently it doesn't work :/

Could you please verify that you have successfully installed the nightlybuilds (you must have some otr related options in the menu in the Chat view)? If you had a previous version of Beem installed from the market, you must first uninstall it before installing our nightly, since signatures mismatch.

If it's not your case, the output from adb logcat would be interesting.

#13 Updated by Danilo B about 7 years ago

I uninstalled all existing installations of Beem and then installed http://www.beem-project.com/Beem-debug.apk.

There are no otr related options in the menu in the chat view: http://imgur.com/a/mXAgR

I couldn't find any otr related entries in the settings either.

Is the logcat of any help if I can't even find the otr settings? Maybe an issue with the builds?

Yep, I investigated and it was an issue with out build bot, something was wrong with some permission on some folder, plus bad push on build.xml.
But it's fixed now and the new Beem-debug.apk look fine now.
