Build 1.1.2 of the Userplane SDK is now in Production, and we continue to roll out exciting new features. Tops on that list are our completely overhauled notifications. In previous versions of the SDK, Webmessenger notifications were in the OSX Growl style. We’ve evolved them now to match the new Webmessenger UI–so a cooler color palette of blue, gray and white. Along with the notifications is the concept of accept/deny. When a user contacts another user for the first time, the default notification behavior is to present the receiving user options to accept or deny the conversation request.
While notifications got an overhaul, we’ve also added a completely new method of integration with this build, which we call Simple Single-Sign-On. The basic concept is to allow you, the publisher, to pass all the components of a user’s identity to Userplane up front. We then provision their access and identity on the fly.
Also brand new in this build? Our alpha release of Webchat Lite (formerly known as Minichat).
Finally, we’re also really happy with the improvements made around our Custom IM Launcher and Badges. Since the Userplane SDK offers publishers multiple avenues to launch IMs, we made significant adjustments to improve performance around IM initialization from either the Custom IM Launcher or Badge. We expect this build will make testing much easier on the part of our publishers.
