Maintenance on Shared instance on September 12th

Posted by Anton Dyachenko on September 12, 2016

Please be notified, that today Technical Operations team scheduled QuickBlox application release

on September 12th (Monday), 2016 on Shared instance (https://admin.quickblox.com/)

The maintenance is planned for 15:00-17:00 (EEST).

 

Server side changes :

As we announced before – we plan to upgrade our application to new architecture by September 2016

(this task is still in progress and will be finished in October).

Current deployment includes server side script, that is a part of further improvements.

 

This architecture upgrade doesn’t require any changes in client side application, as we just need to change the way QuickBlox works with application users.

 

During maintenance you may notice short interruptions.

We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.

 

Please follow QuickBlox blog for additional details.

iOS SDK 2.7.5 release: Dynamic Framework

Posted by Igor Khomenko on August 3, 2016

Hi everybody,

today we announce our new release of iOS SDK 2.7.5 and starting from now we release it as Dynamic Framework.

Dynamic linking is most commonly used on OS X and iOS. When dynamic libraries are linked, none of the library’s code is included directly into the linked target. Instead, the libraries are loaded into memory at runtime prior to having symbols getting resolved. Because the code isn’t statically linked into the executable binary, there are some benefits from loading at runtime.

More info on Dynamic Framework in Apple documentation.

Full changelog:

  • Introducing Quickblox iOS SDK as dynamic framework. See our updated installation guide on this.
    • Dynamic framework is supporting iOS 8+.
    • For iOS 7+ use QuickBlox-static pod as static library.
  • Added framework version as QuickbloxFrameworkVersion extern constant.
  • [FIXES]
    • Fixed possible QBChat issues with IPv6.
    • Fixed QBCOFileUploadInfo not being public class (thanks mskrischke).
    • Fixed leak with QBSession management.

Download new iOS SDK on QuickBlox iOS developers section

Cheers!

API and Dashboard release 2016.06.1

Posted by Igor Khomenko on July 1, 2016

Hi everybody,

we are happy to announce our new backend release, with a couple of new features and stability improvements.

Main updates are:

  • Ability to upgrade plan in Dashboard (see new page https://admin.quickblox.com/account/upgrade). Now you can easily change your plan in Dashboard.
  • Pop-up with main app selection – ability to choose one main application in admin panel, so all global users that are shared between all apps will be assigned only to single app. We are working on some internal architecture changes, so this step is needed to properly finalise this task.  More info on it here.

What’s new, in details:

  • API:
    • Fixed
      • It wasn’t possible to send a notification to email channel via API.
      • Custom Objects, date field: validation is incorrect if set a value via API.

 

  • Dashboard:
    • New
      • Ability to upgrade plan in Dashboard (see new page https://admin.quickblox.com/account/upgrade)
      • Pop-up with main app selection – ability to choose one main application in admin panel, so all global users that are shared between all apps will be assigned only to single app.
    • Fixed
      • In some cases, it wasn’t possible to login via GitHub.
      • Custom Objects, location field: name of the field was wrong.
      • Push Notifications, GCM: wrong delivery statistics.
