Changes since 0.91

  • Improved “Connect” screen with support for Commotion MeshTether integration
  • Does not attempt to use Ad Hoc Wi-Fi or install Wi-Fi drivers unless the “Ad Hoc” network is selected on the “Connect” screen, so risk of inadvertently bricking devices is reduced
  • Better mesh routing uses unicast packets when broadcast packets don't work, so phones respond even when the screen is off
  • New MeshMS protocol with end-to-end encryption and delivery confirmation (Note: incompatible with earlier releases)
  • Improved “Peer List” screen is more responsive and no longer freezes under network load
  • New Rhizome sync protocol is more efficent and backwards compatible (Note: bundles will not propagate from this to earlier releases)
  • Rhizome no longer consumes all available storage, but leaves 100 MiB free at all times
  • Heavy Rhizome sync activity has less impact on voice call latency, but can still degrade voice calls
  • Multi-hop voice calls are now possible, but still suffer from some issues
  • New built-in Dialler screen for devices that do not have a Dialler (eg, tablets)
  • Various user interface and stability improvements
