Once again, I'm considering dropping support for Android 4.4 KitKat. I just think there aren't enough happy users (remember, you need a powerful processor to send messages) and it's quite a hassle to keep it running on both platforms. Any thoughts? :abit:

Abit version 1.0-beta20 released. There was a really ugly bug on Oreo devices, and I'm truly sorry it took so long to fix it. 🙈 🐌

Abit version 1.0-beta17 is out now.

There are some major performance improvements for people with a big inbox, and automatically connecting to Wi-Fi works on devices with nougat and newer. On the other hand, support for KitKat is only best effort from now on, I think of dropping it altogether. I'm sorry for those 30 users, but it's quite a hassle to keep supporting it.

Abit version 1.0-beta16 is out now.

There are still a few bugs, but an annoying one with the floating action button is resolved.

Also, there is an experimental progress bar for the proof of work (sending message) notification. It's mostly fake, but should give the user some sense of progress and the time to be expected. Due to the way POW works, a proper progress indicator is not possible.

Get it on Google play or from the home page: dissem.ch/abit/

It works! I have no clue what it was, but after migrating @Jabit to and fixing some nullability issues, the key exchange suddenly worked! I'll soon release a new build.

I really could use some help with a bug in Abit. See dissem.ch/2017/05/07/Abit_woes
