Mumble for iOS 1.1

Posted on April 4, 2012 by mkrautz

Today we’re releasing version 1.1 of the Mumble iOS app on the App Store.

This release addresses quite a few of the most sought-after features missing from the 1.0 version, along with fixes for various crashes and memory leaks.

New Features

  • An improved icon for the app. Thanks Karsten Bruns!
  • Searchable public server list. Thanks Jimmy Selgen Nielsen!
  • Bluetooth headset support.
  • Echo Cancellation support for the built-in mic.
  • Improved Push-to-Talk configurability and discoverability.
  • Self-registration is now supported.
  • Intermediate certificates can now, optionally, be shown in the Certificate Preferences. Intermediate certificates are colored green. Identities keep their yellow color.
  • When exporting a certificate for which a chain can be built, the whole chain will be exported.
  • Improved crash reporting. After a crash, the app will allow you to submit a crash report directly to the Mumble Developers. An ‘Always’ option is also available, and we hope users will make use of this feature.

Bug Fixes

  • Various crash bugs have been fixed.
  • Various memory leaks have been plugged. Thanks Jimmy Selgen Nielsen!
  • The 1.0 version of the app failed to parse some Distinguished Names from X.509 certificates. A more solid DN parser has been implemented.
  • When connecting to a server, the client will now attempt to build up a full certificate chain using certificates found in the app’s keychain.
  • Importing a PKCS #12 file now correctly imports an identity (certificate and private key), along with all intermediate certificates.
  • All action sheets in the app have been converted to black to better fit in with the rest of the app.
  • Transitioning between the Channel view and a modal view, such as Access Tokens, now provides a better visual experience.
  • The mumble.sqlite database is no longer a hidden file in ~/Documents. It now lives in ~/Library.
  • The public server list file is no longer a hidden file in ~/Documents. It now lives in ~/Library.
