After testing Siskin and Monal for a few days, my impression is that XMPP is now way more usable on iOS than it was back in the days. Many thanks to @tigase for their great work on Siskin IM.

@holger @tigase
I still have issues with monal users not getting reliable pushes from muc. Is Siskin capable of muc pushes and muc omemo usage?

@held @holger there are MUC pushes but not OMEMO in MUC just yet. (it's on our roadmap but we don't have any ETA)

@tigase @holger reliable pushes are way more important, tbh. I'll give it a try I think 😉

@tigase gave it a try and muc pushes as well a omemo work fine. But is it normal / intended to receive a "new message" push each time oneself is typing? Server is prosody 0.11.5

@held No, it's not normal. Do you have any other client connected? Do you have any additional prosody configuration? Have you checked in prosody logs whether it forwards typing notification to push server?

@tigase I had chatsecure and monal on that device as well, but now both are uninstalled. However, prosody shows a push registration for this client for all three push servers in its log file. I know, you're no prosody support, but do you know when these push registrations will be deleted from the server?
Self-pushing while typing still occurs... I have no additional push config added to prosody except the enabling of mod_cloud_notify. Should I provide the whole config?

@tigase... and muc pushes stopped working from yesterday to today. The checkbox "push notifications" in the muc settings in Siskin can not be enabled...


@held they stopped working for all rooms on all servers or there are only certain rooms? In general whether you get or not a notification highly depends on your server - whether it generates one or not. However, MUC (especially on mobile) is quite broken, because once your client looses connection (which on iOS is the default state) then you are not in the room, which causes problems. There are various workarounds but we are working hard to make MIX reality in XMPP world :-)
