#mokum-releases

Only admins can post

Avatar for squadette
We've enabled <script async> feature by default. This should improve page loading speed for bad connections, especially high-latency ones. If your Mokum breaks completely, please report to @support, providing your browser version and device model (you can use some other browser or the magic link http://mokum.place/?js=script). Feature is disabled for Opera Mini because of negative reports. Thank you for testing [/changelog/2041753].

Also, two more page speed improvements for mobile internet connections were implemented yesterday; it's not clear if they had any effect. ‎· псы в рапиде

Dear friends, I need your help in testing some change in Mokum that could only be tested in real world. You can help by visiting https://mokum.place/?js=async and using Mokum as usual (staying on the front page). Least intrusive way to check is to click Fav/Unfav on any post — it should just work as normal. There could be two failure modes: a) the page doesn't work — it looks completely normal but controls have no effect, and b) same but the page starts to work few seconds later. I'm especially interested in a) bad or slow connections and b) non-mainstream browsers and devices. Thank you!
Comment
You can add ?js=async to any URL for testing. ‎· псы в рапиде

Mokum now supports JPEG-2000. Practically speaking that means that more sharing URLs with images are going to be processed without errors.

Groups got a new checkbox: "only admins can post". This allows you to have personal-type groups, like in the old Friendfeed, or official-style groups, like @mokum.
Comment
b) React 16.4.0, and some other version upgrades. Nothing should change, but if anything breaks please report. ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 1
Comment
c) on touch-based devices there is now a tiny clock button near the post timestamp that shows precise timestamps of post and comments (it was a menu item before but it was deemed too expensive visually). For non-mobile computers you can still use mouse over the post date and comment cloud icon. ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 3

For absolutely no reason at all Mokum suddenly has a privacy policy: https://mokum.place/about/privacy-policy. If you have any questions or suggestions please comment here or in @support. Thanks.

You didn't think you could escape this in Mokum, did you? ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 7
Comment
You forgot the obvious one: The content of any post or comment you make on the service, how long you keep backups of them, who you share that content with (link to instructions related to privacy controls, private subfeeds, etc.) You should also link to Google Analytics privacy policy in the appropriate section. ‎· April ‎· 3

Dear friends, as you may have noticed, Mokum now supports line breaks (e.g., /squadette/1972805). Allow me to explain some details behind the implementation of that feature: а) line breaks are enabled with the flag "options -> Linebreaks". When you're editing the post on desktop, you can press Shift-Enter, and the line breaks will be enabled automatically. When the line breaks are enabled, you can submit form with Ctrl-Enter or with the usual "Post to..." button. If you're on mobile device, you will have to first enable the flag, then you can use "return" button on your screen keyboard to add new line.
Comment
б) Posts with line breaks in your feeds have height limit. If the post is longer than 10 lines, it is cut to 7 lines, with "read more" button. "Line" is the visual line of your device. Single post pages are always shown in full. ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 5
Comment
в) line breaks work only in posts for now, not in comments. We need to sort out implementation, then we can try to implement this feature for comments. ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 4
Comment
г) leading spaces in lines are preserved, because poetry. ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 7
Comment
д) the main driving force behind the implementation of this feature is poetry, code snippets and small casual lists. If you need to write a longer text with multiple paragraphs, you are encouraged to use the "first paragraph as post, other paragraphs as comments to that post" pattern; support for this will be soon enhanced a bit. Also, you can use k-texts (https://mokum.place/k) to create longer post with full Markdown markup. ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 9
Comment
е) if you notice any issues with the line breaks mode, please report to @support, preferrably with the screenshot demonstrating an issue. I will also probably ask you for your device model and browser type. Thanks, ‎· псы в рапиде

Calendar view for feed pages (both users and groups) was just released: e.g., https://mokum.place/squadette/calendar (or https://mokum.place/changelog/calendar as an example of group). You can find the link to the calendar view on feeds pages. Calendar includes your primary feed, private subfeed if you have one, "for your eyes only" posts and Friendfeed archive (if you have one imported). Only feeds that you have access to are counted in the calendar.
Comment
Of course, it is not really clear how we could define the day considering time zones, so for now calendar is UTC-based. ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 3

Update: calendar view now has "Previous day" / "Next day" buttons. ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 1

You can now enable "Allow direct messages from anyone" checkbox on your settings page (https://mokum.place/settings). Also, if your account is private and someone is subscribed to your account, they can also send you direct messages even if you're not subscribed to them.

There is now an experimental burger menu on phones. Currently it's prototype-quality, but more items will be added, and hopefully we'll make it be more usable. Please report if you it gives you any trouble or if you have suggestions.

I think I liked it better before. I didn't have to scroll all the way back up to reach it. ‎· April ‎· 2

Is it possible to add "Everything" to the burger menu? ‎· Baytuğ Peyvan ⭐ ‎· 1
Avatar for squadette
a) some improvements for burger menu on mobiles: text size, subscription lists, text baseline alignment;
Comment
b) comment like on direct message comment decrements number of notifications in sidebar; [reminder: when you like incoming direct message, the counter is also decremented accordingly]; ‎· псы в рапиде

Another batch of important on-going fixes was deployed. With luck it should not affect anything for now, but please report if it breaks for you. The ultimate goal is to have some more improvements in visual performance of Mokum.

#mokum-releases: a) React.js 16.2.0. Nothing should change.
Avatar for squadette
The code was temporarily reverted back to few days ago to debug multiple reported issues with random scrolling/"jumping".
Comment
Update: scroll handling was rewritten to improve the situation. However, the solution is not yet complete. ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 3

#mokum-releases: React 16.0.0. HTML size was drastically reduced (e.g., 287 Kb -> 232 Kb for the reference page). This should also be a bit faster.

Update: there is an issue with random scrolling to middle of the page during page load, fix in progress. ‎· псы в рапиде

#mokum-releases: The Big Frontend Cleanup, phase I. Nothing should change, except for less bytes to download from the server and parse, so things should be a bit faster. Please report here or in @support if anything breaks. Thanks,

[New frontend] lightbox handling rewritten to preserve scrolling position after "Back" button on iOS devices (and probably others).
Avatar for squadette
a) (new frontend) problem with popups that do not go away is fixed, hopefully; b) post input area uses newly-implemented component in both old and new frontends. Please report if anything breaks for you.
Avatar for squadette
Text input forms were completely rewritten and should not cause any more issues with scrolling. Please test, especially if you use non-mainstream browsers (@app103?).
Comment
Speed issues on very old devices (like iPad 1) should also be reduced or eliminated entirely. ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 1

[new frontend]: page should no longer move while you're editing text of the post (new or existing) [TODO: same for comments]. This seems to be one of the last release blockers.
Comment
The new frontend seems a lot faster. ‎· John B. ‎· 2

Browser notifications handling was completely rewritten, and it should no longer repeatedly notify about the same events. You can enable notifications at https://mokum.place/settings/browser.

Bookmarklet code was updated to support image sharing from more websites. You need to remove existing bookmarklet and install it again from https://mokum.place/sh.

Mokum now transparently supports uploading Webp files. For normal people (tm) it means that you will have less trouble uploading more files from Android devices and sharing some pages via bookmarklet or extension.
