This article documents the development of xat's web. New features are also pointed out.
|Version 1.53 - January 22, 2021|
- The web pages have been improved for mobile devices. For example all menus are now collapsed by default, focusing on the actual content of the page.
- If a group has a xatframe, an alert will be shown above the chat indicating that a xatframe is used, with a quick access to its settings. If the alert is closed, it will not show up again.
- In group edit, the custom CSS area for the old flash web has been removed.
- Bug fixes:
- Adding images in the tabs editor wouldn’t work, this has been fixed.
- Multiple language fixes have been done.
[Show/hide] Version 1.52 - December 4, 2020
- We have optimized the store pages on mobile devices. For example, rules will now show collapsed to focus on the main content on the page.
- The smilies on the power banner are not animated anymore. Only when you move your mouse over, the smilies will animate. This reduces lag.
- Bug fixes:
- An issue has been fixed where the close tab on the bottom group navigation wouldn’t be correctly aligned.
- Setting Flash as default on the login page wouldn’t allow you to visit the xat homepage, this is now fixed.
[Show/hide] Version 1.50 - September 30, 2020
- New - App Sidebar:
- We have added a sidebar app menu on the left side on groups. This allows you to quickly access certain apps or the app menu.
- On smaller screens, the sidebar menu will show up above the chat.
- App menu:
- The design for the app menu has been improved.
- An issue has been fixed where opening a group on a smaller screen would leave a large space at the top, requiring you to scroll down to get to the HTML5 chat. Now the chat is directly appearing at the top.
- xatframe settings:
- The system has been more efficient as the global xatframe setting will not override the current xatframe setting anymore.
- After clicking “save” on the modal, it will now update the xatframe directly without having to refresh the page anymore.
- Reminder: The settings are accessed from the top menu under the “group” tab.
- xatframe clickable content:
- The area above the HTML5 chat has been slightly increased and can now be used for clickable content with xatframes.
- Trade app:
- When opening a private chat, switching pools and then opening the Trade app, the name and added values wouldn’t be shown. We have fixed this issue. Trading between pools is now possible.
- A critical issue has been fixed where after completing a trade, the added values wouldn’t show when doing another trade right after.
- System error 66 and 69 (login requirement) will give better information now.
- New - App Sidebar:
- Using forbidden contents such as “embed” will now show an error.
- Group powers:
- Link - You can now simply add links with a built-in tool.
- Gback - When adding a Gback on the Gscol, it will now automatically add a “#” at the beginning, if this is missing. “#” is required for Gback to work.
- We added a way to quickly search events from other groups. To do so, simply add the group name in the field.
- When clicking “search” or “old results” it will not automatically bring you to the first row of the table.
- Special characters would be encoded into HTML characters, this issue has been fixed.
- Create Group:
- An issue has been fixed where if invalid characters were used, you wouldn’t receive an error.
- xatframe library
- xatframes with clickable content will be better pointed out now. To see them, simply click on the button at the right.
- Top five xatframe submitters are now listed. The listing depends on the amount of submitted xatframes. If there’s an equal amount, it will randomly show a user per refresh.
- Buttons (login/register) on top menu have been improved.
- The power banner design has been changed and you can now also hover over smilies to see the name.
- Bug Fixes:
- User personalized content on the homepage wouldn’t properly show for languages other than English, this has been fixed.
- On top menu (groups), clicking on featured/popular/etc would bring you the old web page, this has been fixed.
- An issue has been fixed where the “account” menu at the top right would show a large stripe of images if the avatar was animated.
