SDK 1.1.5 was released today by our engineers. I’ll highlight a few fixes/improvements below, but I want to talk about one really cool feature implementation, in particular.
With the release of Presencebar, we’ve introduced the concept of a hover card. The hover card is essentially like a mini-profile that a user can view when mousing over a buddy in their buddy list. Typically, our publishers will populate these “mini-profiles” with A/S/L, or other basic, common data.
With the 1.1.5 release, though, we’ve added the ability to dynamically pass data into the hover card when using the simple single-sign-on method of integration. For example: say your community is online gamers. When a user hovers over another user in their roster, you can now display things like: last game played, number of points earned, number of badges earned, etc. The custom hover card expands the functionality of Userplane exponentially. And it means that you can take existing engagement tools you’ve already implemented, and tie them directly into the chat experience.
There’s a lot more in this release, as well. Here’s a quick summary of some of our other favorite additions with SDK 1.1.5:
- Updates to Presencebar CSS;
- Buddylist now groups users by their online/offline status, and alphabetically within those groups;
- Support for setBuddylist added with support to update Buddylist when friends are added
