A new way to explore your contacts and Communities
The Movim Contacts page has been entirely redesigned. It now gives you a direct access to your friend's publications and general information. The sidebar also allows you to discover more new publications and nice people.
The Community page, introduced in the 0.11 version, has also been reorganized and now allows you to see what is happening on your #pod at a glance.
Publish in a simple click
You want to quickly send a picture to your friends? Share a feeling or a thought? The new Quick Publish widget allows you to do that easily.
If you still want to do more advanced publications with formatting, you can press the plus button to access a full featured editor.
Movim also automatically saves the draft of your publications so you can get back to your publication later.
Organize and explore the publications
Tagging articles in Movim has been greatly simplified. By simply putting #hashtags you can categorize your publications. Now you can also explore public articles having similar tags.
To protect the children browsing the articles we also added an automatic filter on adult content (enabled by default). When publishing "Not Safe For Work" content you can categorize the articles as so by adding the NSFW tag to it.
If you want to have access to those content, you can enable them in the configuration.
New look for the publications
Lovejoy also comes with a new design for the articles cards. The embedded links are better integrated and you can now directly like an article while browsing!
The redesign also simplifies the browsing and navigation on mobile devices.
Movim ❤️ your mobile
The UI of Movim has been redesigned for mobile devices.
A new menu allows you to quickly switch between the four main pages. You can access the full menu by dragging the left side of your phone to the right.
Chat and Chatrooms, new features and redesign
A lot of love has been put in the chatroom features of Movim. They now have the same look and feel as the single chat ones. You can also now embed pictures in the discussions by uploading them or pasting links directly and you can auto-complete the nicknames by pressing
Tab when writing a message in the chatrooms.
Since Lovejoy you can start a private discussion with a chatroom member in one click and invite your contacts to join the chat-room by sending them a message, or an invite link.
Thanks to the new autojoin feature, you can ask Movim to automatically join some of your favorite chatrooms when you log in.
Movim now implements the recent XMPP standard called Chat Markers, this allows you to know if a contact has seen your messages. This feature is also fully compatible with clients like Conversations or Dino.
With the support of the XMPP standard Message Archive Management you can now resynchronize your history when logging back to Movim, for your private discussions but also in the chatrooms. Never loose any messages anymore between your devices!
Under the hood we continue to fix many issues, optimize and refactorize the Movim sourcecode to keep the Core engine clean and secure. This is also made possible by a continuous feedback from our community, via our official chat-room and our Github Page.
Migration of our official XMPP server to ejabberd
One of the biggest tasks of those past months has also been to migrate our official server from the deprecated Metronome server to ejabberd. This migration contains more than 11 thousands accounts, thousands of articles, messages and relations.
Thanks to the ProcessOne team and especially Christophe Romain, Evgeny Khramtsov and Holger Weiß we greatly improved the script to migrate the data from one server to another and several features used by Movim after the migration.
ejabberd is now officially recommended by the Movim team. To make Movim fit perfectly with your server, please follow our ejabberd configuration page on our Wiki.
We are now close to having 300 simultaneously connected users on our official pods :)
For 9 years now, the Movim team and community is working freely to develop the platform and the related projects. We are also hosting the official pods to allow our users to enjoy Movim daily.
You can also help us by writing feedbacks about your experience with Movim, translate the project or help us debugging and improving the platform :)
You can find all the information on our official website.
That’s all folks!
