The Status Hackathon - #CryptoLife is taking place in Prague this weekend (October 26 - 28), so this release goes out to the developers who will be hacking with us both at the event and around the world.

Extensions

Building a DApp? You can now extend Status functionality to make your DApp’s features mobile and accessible to more users! We now allow you to create custom chat commands using a newly-exposed set of Status components, queries and events (e.g. ‘ethereum/call’ and ‘ethereum/send-transaction’). Extensions are data-based and totally decentralized. To start building, visit https://docs.status.im/extensions/ for instructions.

Ethereum Name Service

For those who aren’t hacking, we have some nice changes in here for you, too! An especially exciting addition comes with the launch of our new username registration DApp. To claim a ‘stateofus.eth’ username, navigate to your profile and select ENS Names.

Your ENS name can be used in place of your wallet address and contact code. Once registered, share your name with friends so they can start new chats or send you transactions simply by using [your name].stateofus.eth.

Greater Privacy and Security

One other important thing to note: shaking your phone will no longer start a bug report. We removed our reporting tool for greater privacy & security. Instead, if you have any questions or requests, please ping us in #status.
