Testing upcomming Desktop 1.3.2 Release

We have a new desktop release in the pipeline, featuring:

:pushpin: Pinned Chats

:camera: Scan QR codes with the system webcam to join Groups and verify contacts
(and fallbacks that use the qrcode-data instead for the case that no webcam is available):

  • load image from file
  • paste qr code data
  • open qrcode data as url (openpgp4fpr urls; such as “Manual link” on the “login with deltachat” page)

:pencil2: change (nick-)name of contacts

Full changelog: https://github.com/deltachat/deltachat-desktop/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md#130---2020-04-30

Now we need your help to to test this release, to make sure it runs smoothly enough to put it out in the wild (onto the download page) :wink:.
You can report the bugs you found either on github or under this post.
We already know about these bugs, so you don’t have to report them again:

  • appimage can’t open qrcode data urls.

Update:
We have a new release with fixes: 1.3.1

are you using the .deb or the appimage?
We should probably package an compatible version of glibc -> because electron builder doesn’t do it.

I’m using the .deb file.
