Can confirm it’s for GroupsV2, but I did not know they were mandatory in official Signal now. That moves the up the priority list. Sorry for the inconvenience!

EDIT: actually, there’s still a difference between creating a group with a WF user, and adding a WF user to a group. The former is still possible, the latter is not. Please do track https://gitlab.com/rubdos/whisperfish/-/issues/86, `beta.1. will include Groups v2! :slight_smile:


Wow, this project is really advanced - thanks @rubdos and all other people on it :+1:. Installed alpha 7 yesterday on my xperia 10, registration was smooth and sending and receiving messages works. I see the issue with groups and group management is known and gets some priority, thanks for that. With other contacts (single person) Whisperfish displays contact names in the overview but just phone numbers when writing a new message. Is that also “work in progress” or did something fail with my installation?

For reference, this is how a “working” conversation should look like:

If your experience is different, feel free to report an issue!

Installed and registered while sitting at an airport, and had it running in minutes, chatting with my one Signal using contact, no problems.

Thanks Rubdos! Keep up the good work.

Unfortunately: “To use the Signal desktop app, Signal must first be installed on your phone.” and it seems that QR-code linking is needed , so Signal remains practically useless for me - for the same reason as WA etc.

https://gitlab.com/rubdos/whisperfish/-/merge_requests/61 and https://gitlab.com/rubdos/whisperfish/-/issues/97 are things you may want to keep an eye on then! Linking is a highly requested feature, and shouldn’t be too difficult to implement at this point.
