Line 0, Birthday 3

Added by Frédéric Barthéléry over 5 years ago

It's been three years since we committed the first line of code on Beem.

At this time, we were 6 young developpers working on this brand new mobile platform, Android.

Beem was created as part of our Epitech Innovative Project,
our final year study project. It was quite exciting since we started the developments
before the first device was release so there were a lot of challenges.

In this dark ages, when we had to choose our project topic, some of us did not believe
in this project and just wanted to hang themselves. Maybe some really did as we are
now only 3 developers of the orignal Beem Team!

But here we are! Beem is one of the best Free (as in speech but also as in beer!) jabber
client for Android with more than 30000 downloads and this is all because of you!
It is the little community of users, translators and developers which support us and
keep us (I hope so) in the right direction.

We are trying to make it better and better and one day we will be the perfect
Google [talk/+/voice/whatever] replacement and we'll rule the world and we'll
get a lot of money, and glory and ...

I just loose it ...

Happy Birthday Beem !!!

Beem-0.1.7 next week

Added by Nikita Kozlov over 5 years ago

Hello folks,

We are planning to release the 0.1.7 version next week. It will contain principally OTR and certificate validation, and of course some bug fix.

The complete list of related tickets :
Bug #285: Unable to make DNS SRV resolution
Bug #352: beem 0.1.5 crash in eclipse
Bug #353: changestatus causes segfault
Bug #365: Otr always displays the local fingerprint
Bug #366: Error while saving Capabilities
Feature #239: Add OTR for secure communication
Feature #253: Deal with strict certificate checking
Feature #319: Use smartphone led for incoming message notification

For the next release, we are planning to rewrite the account support and make a better reconnection handling.
It means some big rewrite so we are discussing about if we will switch to a 0.2.X branch or if we will try to push incrementally to the current trunk some big patchs.

Side notes:
• We have a developement branch for the new account code http://www.beem-project.com/hg/account/
• Marseille has done most of the work on the new account branch, if you have questions on it, ask him
• Beem 0.1.7 is the last version being compatible with android 1.X, our next release will require android 2.X
• During a server migration we lost our mailman databases, please subscribe back to our mailing list if you want to stay in touch
• Contributions are welcome, but, don't hesitate to discuss with us what you could do and how to do it.

Cheers,
Beem team
