I've just released Converse.js version 6.0.0.
The biggest change is support for storing data (e.g. messages) in IndexedDB which has no size restrictions. It's not yet the default store, but will be eventually.
Another exciting addition to Converse.js 6.0.0 is support for message retraction (i.e. removal) by the author (XEP-0424) or by a groupchat admin (XEP-0425).
These are brand new XEPs that I helped author and I'm not aware of other #xmpp clients which already support them. Hopefully they will do so soon.
@jcbrand i'm new to the XMPP world and wow, i'm surprised that such important features were missing. thanks for writing and implementing the XEPs; this can make everyone's XMPP experience a lot better!
I agree they should have existed sooner already.
However, it's difficult to do something like this in a clean a future-proof way for a federated and backwards-compatible protocol.
No this is unrelated.
BTW, if you're using a browser that supports the Credential Management API, then your session is maintained across page reloads.
@0 Yes, probably just an "edit" hack.
@jcbrand thank uuu
It should fall back to localStorage
How could I miss that in my feedreader. Guess I have to update soon.
