Thanks for the reports! They gave us important insight into a common type of crash, and this is now fixed in version 0.1905.10-beta:
* Bug fix: startup crashes related to IPv6
If you're experiencing crashes lately, use the new version 0.1905.09-beta which can detect and report these crashes.
We'll try to fix them as soon as we know info on them 🙏
* Bug fix: a type of crash related to peer connections
* Bring back support for Android 5.0 in Google Play
New version! v0.1904.22-beta brings:
* 🔥⏩ Speed improvements in the UI interactivity, potentially 3x faster!
* Bug fixes and crash fixes
Yes this is absolutely the right way to go, we're going to get there eventually. For instance, right now Manyverse is configured "hops=2" which means you will get your friend's friends' data. So if Bob has many friends, you'll get a lot of data. In the future you could customize so that you choose to get *only* Bob's data.
About very long feeds, it could be possible to automatically split your feed into one per year.
@RefurioAnachro @bhaugen @staltz Technically, it's not Merkle trees. And we have a mode where you can trust messages, it's called ssb-ooo https://github.com/ssbc/ssb-ooo but it's difficult to support it in the apps (e.g. computing the correct "follow/block" state depends on the order of the messages)
@coffe Hi! Sorry, that's not possible in the UI yet. But if you want to hack it, if your phone is rooted you can move the folder /data/data/se.manyver/files/.ssb using the terminal (Termux)
Version 0.1904.8-beta released:
* Slightly faster indexing speeds
* Support pubs and peers that use WebSockets
@RefurioAnachro @bhaugen @staltz There are two parts: the downloading of data, and the building of database indexes. The second part lasts longer than the first part, and just uses CPU.
And reminder: I acknowledge (@staltz) that these are heavy costs, I'm working on solving it, but it's a challenge that relates to the whole SSB stack.
@steko Yes it's unfortunately normal. Deleting is a good idea. It has highest chances of working if both phones are online at the same time, and the invite is claimed at roughly the same time as it is created. (e.g. create on one device, then within 30 seconds, try inputting it on the other device)
New version 0.1903.22-beta:
* Fix Wi-Fi sync between phones
@andycuccaro Hi! No hashtags nor search so far, but it's in the feature roadmap. :)
@steko In the future Manyverse will store your core account in a user directory independent from any apps, so that even if you uninstall, you won't lose your account. For now, it's sensitive.
@steko That's expected because F-Droid builds the app and signs it differently than Dat Installer (if I'm not mistaken, this problem also exists between F-Droid and Google Play). Also don't uninstall / re-install, as you *will* lose your account if you do that. F-Droid will soon have version 0.1903.20, they build every 3 days or so.
