SDK 1.1.6 has been released just in time for us Userplaners to kick back with some turkey, stuffing and wine for a long Thanksgiving weekend. Just like all our Thanksgiving turkeys, SDK 1.1.6 is a fairly stuffed release, with lots of features added, enhanced and fixed.
One of my personal favorites has been an API-side additions in sendOfflineMessages and sendArchive. Together, these APIs enable you to do lots of cool things with chat transcripts and messages sent to users when they’re not online. The most practical implementation of these APIs would be something akin to Facebook-messaging, where you can send a message to anyone and, if they’re offline, it will be delivered to an inbox.
Like sendOfflineMessages, sendArchive can be used to deliver entire chat transcripts to users at the close of their conversation, like GTalk does with GMail. Pretty great stuff, and a neat way to extend the functionality of your Userplane SDK integration.
Other features and enhancements of note in the SDK 1.1.6 release:
- Webchat Lite is now available as an embedded experience;
- Ensure your users don’t miss a notification with customized timeouts;
- Pending message indicators now persist when a user navigates or refreshes.
