ATTENTION ALL SERVICE NODE OPERATORSThe mandatory upgrade period has begun. Start upgrading your Service Nodes to the Valiant Vidar compatible binaries now. This hardfork will require upgrades to Lokinet, lokid and the Loki storage server. The instructions for upgrading have changed, so please read them carefully. If you are running a custom installation with firewalling then note that this upgrade requires a new storage server port (22020 by default) to be opened.The mandatory upgrade period will end at block 496,969 (about 7 days from now), so make sure you have upgraded before then.Loki Launcher instructions: https://docs.loki.network/ServiceNodes/SNFullGuide/#updating-your-binariesDeb instructions : https://docs.loki.network/ServiceNodes/DebianPackageGuide/#upgrading

No images? Click hereYou’ve got mail! A new notification system and under the hood improvements arrive in Session updates.Welcome to the first ever Session release round-up! In this newsletter, we’re going to talk about all of the newest fixes, features, and future plans for Session. Every time there’s a major Session release, we’ll put out one of these letters so you can see what’s changed, and what changes are coming up next. Today, it’s all about the latest mobile and desktop releases of Session (1.1.0 on mobile, 1.0.7 on desktop) — available now! For this round of releases, we wanted to focus on making Session more dependable, so we’ve packed in UI polish and bug fixes instead of bundling new features. A lot of the work that went into 1.1.0 and 1.0.7 sets Session up for future updates as well — these releases will help us troubleshoot problems with closed groups, open groups, and multi-device so that we can fix them in future releases.  SEE ALL OF OUR FEATURES  On-board for delivery: Changes packed in the Session updates There have been some widespread problems with message delivery. These changes should help make sure your messages reach their destinations and don’t get lost on the way. • • Session now correctly retries with a different Service Node if a message fails to send. iOS • • Heavily refactored Service Node communication layer to improve reliability. iOS, Android, Desktop  • • Various fixes and improvements to client-Service Node communication. iOS, Android, Desktop We noticed that Session felt a little bit slooooooow. We’ve made some tweaks to improve Session’s performance.  • • Made various multithreading improvements. iOS, Android Every now and then, Session does some odd stuff. Sometimes it's plain old crashes, sometimes it's stranger things. This change should fix a lot of those problems.  • • Changed some things which were incorrectly happening in parallel. This was causing race conditions which could cause invalid states in the app. iOS, Android Chatting is more fun when you’re doing it with more than one. Closed groups are a core part of Session, but they needed some TLC to get them working properly. • • Closed group descriptions now show a snapshot of the group’s state per message instead of updating dynamically. iOS, Android • • Closed group messaging is disabled when you're removed. iOS, Android  • • Ignore messages from users that aren’t in the closed group. iOS, Android • • Correct message is now shown when you're removed from a closed group.  iOS. Android  • • All closed group members are now notified when a user is removed. iOS, Android • • Fixed unnecessary database checks for open groups to reduce CPU usage. Desktop CPU age Session’s privacy-preserving notifications turned out to be so private they didn’t even tell you when you received messages — we’ve implemented a whole new notification system to make notifications more reliable on mobile.  • • Session now offers you the choice between Apple Push Notification service (iOS)/Firebase Cloud Messaging (Android) and background polling (old system) for push notifications. APNs/FCM provide more immediate and reliable push notifications.  iOS, Android  NOTE that using Apple Push Notification service or Firebase Cloud Messaging notifications exposes your device IP to Apple or Google respectively. Of course, your messages are still encrypted and onion routed — so Apple and Google still can’t see your message contents, who you’re talking to, or when you’re sending and receiving messages.  Speaking of being notified — it should be obvious when someone @s you.  • • Added @mentions in side panel of desktop client. Desktop Auto-update isn’t all that useful when it doesn’t happen automatically. We’ve made some fixes so that this is (hopefully) the last version of Session Desktop that you’ll have to download manually.  • • Desktop clients now auto-update successfully. Desktop Here’s a riddle: how do you moderate a chat when you can’t select or delete messages? Well, you can’t… so we fixed that. 

• • Message selection and deletion now work properly. Desktop Sent a rant about work to your boss by mistake? Accidentally sent a confession of love to your crush? We’ve got your back — just click ‘unsend’.  • • Message delete button now shows ‘unsend’ for messages that can be deleted from their servers. Desktop Did someone ask for more onions? That’s right, 1-hop onion requests are now implemented on all platforms. This should also make message delivery more reliable.  • • Enabled 1-hop onion requests. iOS, Android, Desktop   In the workshop: Changes planned for upcoming Session updates The work that went into refactoring the Service Node communication layer is going to be super important over the next few weeks — now we’ll be able to enable onion requests and more reliably fix issues with closed groups, open groups, and multi-device. We'll be working on implementing three-hop routing — the reason we built the onion request system — some time over the next few weeks. We’re also working on implementing shared sender keys, which means we'll be able to increase closed group size! We don’t have a specific number to share with you just yet — but the number of members allowed in a closed group will increase substantially. ¿Hablas español? That’s right, we’ve been hard at work on localising Session into some of the most-requested languages, and our Spanish localisation is almost ready! We’re putting the finishing touches on the Spanish translation, so keep an eye on our social channels for the latest updates.  Thank you!We’ve been busy bees lately, and there’s still plenty of work left for us to do. For now, thank you to all our community members who have helped us find all the bugs and bumpy parts of Session. We don’t use the normal privacy-invading analytics tools that other developers rely on to improve their software — so your help means the world to us. That’s all for now folks! You’ll be hearing from us soon. The Session team

1.2.0Repository: loki-project/session-android · Tag: 1.2.0 · Commit: 4001714 · Released by: nielsandriesseThis release features a complete overhaul of the Session protocol layer. This means reliability improvements across closed groups, device linking, message syncing, session restoration and uploading attachments as well as performance improvements and UI fixes.

Filling the Android void: Complete overhaul improves multi-device, friend requests, and message sendingWho says robots can’t have feelings? Android is certainly feeling the love with this latest Session update. We took a more fundamental approach with this update — instead of focusing on specific bug fixes, we decided to change the underlying logic of Session’s basic functionality (on Android, at least). What we’re really saying is: the bones of the Android Session client just got a major calcium injection.  This means sweeping improvements you’ll be able to feel everywhere in the app: messages sending reliably, nitro-boosted performance, and (fingers crossed) multi-device improvements. Let’s get into the nitty-gritty. SEE ALL OF OUR FEATURESAndroid deployed: What’s in the latest updateSession is meant to help you keep in touch with your buddies, but problems with friend requests kept getting in the way. Sometimes, you’d send a friend request but your mate would never get it. Or maybe they’d already accepted your request but it never showed up for you. Well, now receiving and accepting friend requests should go off without a hitch.   • Overhauled underlying friend request logic. Android Closed groups are supposed to connect you with your friends, but the groups themselves weren’t quite ready for the party — to put it plainly, they didn’t work well. Now, closed groups have finally RSVP’d — expect improved closed group functionality, especially for multi-device users. • Overhauled closed group logic and handling. Android If you’ve ever tried to pair your Android device, you might have noticed device linking was really unreliable. Maybe devices never paired at all, or if they did, messages didn’t sync. Multi-device has been something of a problem child, but these fixes should make linking with Android devices much smoother.  • Overhauled underlying multi-device logic. Android Re-sync session. Re-sync session. Re-sync session. Sometimes re-syncing your session felt like Groundhog Day. Re-syncing should successfully fix broken sessions now, and message sending should be more reliable in general. • Overhauled underlying encryption session handling. Android  Like we said before, this update was more of a makeover than a touch-up. You’ll notice the app should be faster and much more stable. Good vibes all around.  • Refactor of the entire Session protocol. Android  • Fixed several UI bugs which blocked the user from performing certain actions. Android On the conveyor belt: Future updatesAndroid refactor: Done. iOS refactor: Also done. The next cab off the rank is the Desktop refactor. With the mobile versions out of the way, we’ll be turning the screws on our Desktop refactor — that update should be arriving in your inboxes in the next few weeks. This should mean a whole host of similar improvements to the ones iOS and Android just got: improved multi-device functionality, session handling, and overall performance. And yes, the Spanish translation for Session is getting VERY close! Yes, really! It’ll most likely arrive on Android first, so Android users — keep an eye out for español in an upcoming update. We’re going to make some updates to onion requests, too — soon they’ll reach their final form: triple-hop requests. We’ll also be adding a brand new feature to display onion request progress, so you can see your messages being routed around the world in real-time. Last but not least, we’re still working on implementing shared sender keys to take closed groups to the next level — once we’ve got this implemented, you’ll be able to invite way more people to your closed groups.

1.2.2Repository: loki-project/session-android · Tag: 1.2.2 · Commit: 3d92cc3 · Released by: nielsandriesseFixes:• Fixed push notification mode screen issue on small screens.• Background polling should work better now.• There were several issues with the new conversation button that have now been fixed.Improvements:• Increased photo quality.—

1.2.3Repository: loki-project/session-android · Tag: 1.2.3 · Commit: 5b1b046 · Released by: nielsandriesseThis version removes Firebase analytics, which was indirectly included (but not used) and causing analysis tools such as Exodus to flag Session as having analytics in the app.

bonjour à tous, je voulais savoir si on peut stocker nos jetons Loki sur Etherum

New mobile updates bring much-improved performanceAaaaand we’re back! No, it’s not the Desktop refactor — that’s still on its way. But here’s something to whet your appetite in the meantime — we’ve got brand new updates for iOS and Android rolling out this week! These updates aren’t anywhere near as big as the iOS and Android refactors from the last few weeks, but they should help tie up a few loose ends. Let’s take a look at the goodies in store for you this week!SEE ALL OF OUR FEATURESMission launch: Rocket powered performanceThat Desktop refactor IS coming. Mobile’s already had its time in the sun, but we had to make a few extra changes to make sure mobile clients will be compatible with the Desktop refactor. Protocol changes to ensure compatibility with upcoming Desktop refactor. Android iOS The most basic thing you can do on Session is send a message, but some iPhone users were encountering a bug which stopped you from being able to do that. It turns out there was an encryption problem — and if Session can’t encrypt a message, it doesn’t send the message. It should be all cleared up now — message away!Fixed an encryption issue that could prevent some messages from being sent. iOS Another issue that was stopping some of you from sending messages: the clock on your device desyncing from the Service Node network. Session will now let you know when the clocks are out of whack, so that they can be resynced and you can keep messaging. Session now notifies you when this your device clock is out of sync with the Service Node network. Android iOS Some people were running into a problem where their messages got stuck on ‘encrypting message’. Well, it turns out Session was encrypting a message that whole time, it’s just that the proof of work it was trying to complete was very difficult. This is a known Service Node bug, so Session will now ignore Service Nodes asking for insanely difficult PoW calculations.Session now guards against Service Nodes specifying an unreasonably high proof of work requirement. iOS Open groups help build community spirit on Session, but they've been running into some problems. Some people weren’t able to join open groups at all! All of these issues should be resolved now— open groups are now, well, open!Improved reliability of joining whitelist-based open groups. Android iOS Fixed open group messaging from a linked device. iOS Open group names and logos now update correctly. iOSFixed an issue where some messages were missing after leaving and rejoining an open group. iOSIn-line replies in closed groups weren’t working consistently, so it was hard to get someone’s attention in the middle of a big conversation. Thankfully this should be all fixed now — just long-press on a message to reply to it.Fixed replying in closed groups. Android The last thing you want is someone you don’t know crashing your party. Unknown contacts kept showing up when creating closed groups, so it was possible to accidentally add random people to your conversations. With this update, the closed group creation screen will only list contacts you’ve actually added.Unknown contacts no longer show up when creating a closed group. iOSProfile pics weren’t showing up for some people in closed groups, making it a bit difficult to keep track of who was saying what — that should be cleared up now. When someone messages you in a closed group, you will now correctly see their profile picture. iOS Profile pictures let you show off a little bit of style on Session, but they weren’t syncing up on secondary devices for multi-device users. Profile pictures should now sync up for both devices linked to your Session ID!

Your profile picture should now sync correctly when linking a device. Android iOSIf you’ve ever tried to send a selfie on Session, you might have noticed the photo looked a bit blurry. The camera within Session wasn’t performing as intended, but now you can send crystal-clear pictures using the in-app camera. Improved quality of photos taken using the in-app camera. iOSWe like Session to look pretty, so we’ve made a few changes to clean up the look and feel of Session.All mentions are now styled the same Android. iOSMinor UI improvements. Android iOSSession can’t just look the part — it needs to have the performance under the hood to match its good looks. These changes should result in a very noticeable performance upgrade for iPhone users! Overhauled database handling. iOSImproved use of multithreading. iOSThere have been a LOT of fixes to help smooth out the process of linking a device. But what if you want to unlink a device? Some people had problems with zombie secondary devices coming back over and over again. This fix should double-tap those zombie devices and make sure they’re removed. Permanently. Devices don't return after being unlinked. iOSWe bang on about Session being open source — and it really is important. But up until now, it’s been relatively difficult for the average person to compile Session’s iPhone app from source. We’ve made it a lot easier, so you can compile the code for yourself for your own peace of mind (if you want, at least).Building the app from source is now considerably easier. iOS Sometimes Session screeches to a sudden halt. App crashes are really frustrating for everyone, but thankfully you should be seeing less of them with this latest update. Several crash fixes Android. iOSFixed a crash that could happen after opening a notification. iOSFixed crash which occurred when searching group chats. iOS(Almost) ready to launch: Desktop refactorYes, the Desktop refactor is coming soon! We’ve been hammering away at it for a while now, and it should be ready for you in the next few weeks. The arrival of the Desktop refactor should have a flow-on effect which improves messaging performance for all users — even those of you who aren’t using Desktop at all. The refactor will involve a bunch of performance improvements, bug fixes, and should make linking Desktop clients more reliable. We’re also still working on shared sender keys, which will be a huge upgrade for closed groups. Once shared sender keys roll out, closed groups will be much faster, and they’ll be able to have way more members! Thank you!As per usual, the biggest props go to you — Session’s users. We’re putting in all these hours because we want to do our bit to protect your online privacy, but don’t underestimate how much of a role you’re playing too — by using and supporting projects like Session. Those of you reading these update notes, sending feedback via social media and email, and using Session every day are the people who make all of this possible.See you next time! The Session team

Session 1.1.0Repository: loki-project/session-desktop · Tag: 1.1.0 · Commit: 1076c55 · Released by: MikunjSessionSession uses the Signal encryption protocol and the Loki blockchain’s decentralised Service Node network to provide anonymous, end-to-end encrypted messaging without relying on central servers.Release overview:This is a major release for Session and many changes have been made to make the application more usable and easier to maintain in the future. Some of these changes include:Removing friend requestsWe felt that the friend request system wasn't very intuitive. We have removed it, replacing it with the ability to block people.This change should significantly reduce the friction of starting a conversation with someone; you will be able to start a chat with anyone, anytime, and anyone will be able to start a chat with you.Improved communicationsDue to the removal of friend requests, we were able to implement a new session establishment protocol.Improved message sendingMessages waiting to be sent are now persistent through application loads. This means if you send a message and immediately close Session before the message is finished sending, it will be sent automatically the next time you open the app.Message error handling is also improved, and you will now be able to view the cause of a send error.Improved multi-deviceMulti-device was proving to be very unreliable when receiving messages. This has been re-written, and multi-device message receiving should now be more reliable.Other reliability improvements.

And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for... Desktop overhaul!How many refactors does it take to overhaul the entire Session code base? Well, 3 — one for iOS, one for Android… and now, one for Desktop. That’s right — the Desktop client refactor is DONE! You can download it right now! Although this might seem like ‘just another refactor’, it will actually bring huge reliability benefits on all platforms, as well as making it much easier for us to forge ahead with new features and fixes.Refactor aside, Session is becoming quite the polyglot — we’ve brought French, German, and Russian language versions to Android. New language versions are coming in hard and fast at the moment, and as per usual, we’d love to hear your thoughts on how to make these translations as amazing as possible!Now let’s get to the good bit — the update list. SEE ALL OF OUR FEATURESCompleting the trilogy: Desktop refactorClosed groups are a core part of Session — but if you’ve invited any Desktop users to your closed groups lately, you might have noticed messages weren’t being delivered to everyone successfully. This really defeats the whole point of having a group chat, but the Desktop refactor will mean everyone in your closed group gets the memo. Protocol-level overhaul and refactor. Desktop Fixed a session handling bug that could occur in closed groups iOS AndroidEven if you’ve been using the freshly-refactored iOS and Android versions of Session, you still might’ve been left wondering why messages still weren’t delivering consistently. Well, Desktop still had a lot of problems sending and receiving messages, but (once again) the Desktop refactor should clear those issues up for EVERYONE! Protocol level overhaul and refactor. DesktopFor most folks out there, multi-device means linking your computer and your phone. Although Android and iOS have already gotten a lot of device linking updates, Desktop was still waiting for its round of multi-device fixes. Now that the Desktop refactor is out in the wild, multi-device should be a lot more reliable across the board. Protocol level overhaul and refactor. Desktop Fixed an issue that prevented devices linking. AndroidIf you’ve ever regretted adding someone on Session, you probably noticed there isn’t an easy way to block someone. Friend requests acted as a bit of a filter, but after accepting the request — you could be left open to spam or harassment. That’s why we’ve decided to replace the friend request system with contact blocking functionality. Added ability to block other users. Desktop Android Removed friend requests. Desktop AndroidHallo! Bonjour! Privet! We’ve added three new language versions for Session — German, French, and Russian. Translated the app into German, French and Russian. AndroidSome users were reporting lots and lots and lots of notifications flying in as soon as they launched the app. With this update, Session should keep its cool — it’ll only send you notifications when you actually have a new message. Prevent repeated notifications after user is offline for extended period. AndroidThere was one other notification bug causing a couple different issues on Android. Firstly, it meant Android users with background polling notifications were... never getting notifications. Ever. And people using Firebase notifications were experiencing very fast battery drain. Worst of both worlds! We’ve squashed this bug now, so these notification issues should be fixed on Android. Fixed high battery usage when using Firebase notifications. Android Users will now receive notifications when using background polling. Android We’ve rolled out a few fixes for in-chat mentions lately, and we’re pretty happy with the way they’re functioning. However, iOS mentions were working differently to Android and Desktop, which could be confusing to people using Session across multiple platforms. With that in mind, we’ve changed iOS mentions — they’ll behave the same way as other platforms. Modified mentions behaviour to bri

ng it in line with other platforms. iOSRefactor: Complete. Development: Steaming aheadSession’s freshly refactored codebases on all three platforms have laid the foundation for a whole new world of future improvements. These refactors bring bug fixes, reliability improvements, and performance improvements straight away — but the real benefits are yet to be realised.Another change we’ve decided to make in order to expedite development is to bench friend requests. Don’t worry — friend requests aren’t gone forever, they’ll likely return as an optional feature in the future. But in their current implementation, friend requests were introducing more issues than they solved. In this Desktop update, a new contact blocking feature replaced friend requests, and we’ll be making that same change on iOS and Android soon.We’ve got some more language versions coming up soon, including Persian! This one is a little different to all of our other language translations, because Persian is written from right-to-left, whereas all the other languages we’ve added to Session so far are written left-to-right. This means some extra work will be required to get Persian purring along, but once that’s done, it’ll pave the way for adding other RTL languages in future. As always, if you want to see Session translated into your language, be sure to let us know on one of our social channels!We’re also still hammering away at shared sender keys for closed groups. Shared sender keys will drastically improve closed groups in several ways, including performance upgrades and a higher cap on closed group member numbers.Thank you!Getting the code refactors done for iOS, Android, and Desktop has been a monumental task. We’ve been working on it for weeks and weeks now, and we couldn’t have done it without the ongoing feedback and support from the community. Making a kickass messenger without analytics is a tough job — and without your help, bug fixes, UI upgrades, and performance improvements would be a lot harder to come by.We’re listening carefully to all of the problems you’re having and all of the features you want to see in Session. Now that the refactors are done, we can shift focus to implementing the new features and fixes you’ve all been waiting for.Catch you on the flip side! The Session team
