This version contains some minor bug fixes and includes some hidden features which will be used by uniqush-conn. The release note explains all the changes.

Instead of the changes themselves, in this post, I would like to talk about how they related to the uniqush-conn and what's the next step.

Hidden features? Why?

Well. This is a free and open source project. There is nothing hide from users. However, hidden feature here means something for internal use and may be changed or even deleted in the future. Users should not depend upon those features.

To make those features isolated from daily use, we introduced a set of parameters that users should avoid using them. When you send an HTTP request to uniqush-push, you send several parameters. Any parameters whose name starting from uniqush. should be considered as a reserved parameter and users should not use those parameters. This is a very easy way of separating name space and fortunately, uniqush is not a common word.

uniqush-conn? Are you still working on it?

Yes. Definitely. Good news: it is almost done and in fact, you can play with it right now. Moreover, you can even use our java library and learn how to use it with the example.

So what am I waiting for? Why not release it and have all the fun?

As I promised, there should be libraries for mobile clients. Right now, I'm still working on the android library and there is still zero line of code for iOS library. If I cannot support these two popular platforms with the same functionality, I should not release the code.

But you can still read the code if you are really impatient.

What's next?

In fact, my focus has switched to uniqush-conn and its related libraries in recent months. You can tell this from my github commit history, where I am extending my longest streak by working on these projects.

As I can expect, the android library will be comming soon. But the iOS library may experience some delay.
