#Mastodon v2.4.0rc2 is out: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v2.4.0rc2
Still some stuff to be done before it can become 2.4.0. In particular, we're adding a webhook-like API so apps can better implement push notifications. This is an extension of the Web Push API we already had implemented, it just needs some cleaning up because previously the events sent through that didn't need to be documented and only the webapp used them.
@Technowix @WAHa_06x36 @Gargron yes, ST2.4.9 supports push subscription (maybe need update access token to enable it). app calls subscription api, then app-server receives notification from mastodon, then event is redirected via Firebase Cloud Messaging that uses mobile network function that can send message to deep sleeped mobile device.
if device has no google servece, ST can use polling notification every 15min interval.
@kurisu @Gargron well, any app can maintain a background connection (not anymore on iOS, ok) but on android with the right permission your app can be used in the background , and thus using any "notification provider".
What could be nice is that every Mastodon server actually are relay of some sort, and don't rely on firebase/apple api
@kurisu what I mean is... hum, the state between "I heard" (aka I'm on, aka I'm waked up) and the "I'm not hearing".
You agree that even while keeping an idle tcp connexion (have to maintain it sometime nuh ?) you can't enter in deep sleep for 10min and still receive data in this timestamp ?
