v1.18 Release - Binance, ENS, Reliability & Syncing
Status moves ever forward, bringing privacy and secure communication to all. The core team has toiled to bring together a big release: more reliability in several dimensions, support for Binance Smart Chain and ENS tokens, "Online" status indicator, and several fixes.
Binance, ENS, xDAI
By popular request, Binance is now supported directly (doesn't have to be added as a custom network). ENS tokens are also now directly supported. Some people reported an issue with xDAI network fee calculations, this has also been resolved.
Better Message Reliability
Who says decentralized software is unstable? Not us. Messages can now be sent while offline (and will propagate when back online). Handling of messages under spotty wifi (or device battery) is now more robust, as is loading received messages.
Device Pairing/Sync Improvements
Status across devices is better than ever. The Activity Center now syncs across devices, so duplicate notifications will be a nuisance of the past. "Read" messages are also synced across devices.
Performance & UX
V1.18 also makes some improvements to the overall Status experience. Users can now use ENS names owned by imported wallets. Contacts can be backed up and restored through Waku.
The APK available is here.
