Hi there, we have just released a new version of SourceTalk with a lot of minor improvements to the overall user experience:

  • Chat now supports multiline messages. Press <Enter> if you want to insert a line break, press <Ctrl + Enter> (or Send button) to send a message.
  • Source file synchronization mechanism is improved.
  • Several notable synchronization bugs are fixed.

But besides that, we are glad to announce some huge changes that you will see very soon. First of all, we are working on a better design for all our infrastructure: the app itself, our site, and this blog. Then, we are planning to move to WebSocket technology as the main transporting mechanism, which will strongly improve your chatting and synchronization experience: we understand that it is far from perfect right now. Last but not least, we are working to implement user accounts and planning to add paid plans later. Don’t worry, if you don’t want to pay, all the features you can use now will be always available for free: paid plans will add the features like private conferences, infinite chat history, and synchronization with GitHub, but if you don’t need these, nothing changes for you.
