Chatty 0.6.0 released for Mobian but PureOS still at older version?

Chatty 0.6.0 was released 8 days ago in the source code repo and is available in Mobian now.

But in PureOS byzantium the chatty version is still at 0.5.0.beta3 at least for me. Why the delay, is there something wrong?

It simply hasn’t migrated out of landing yet. Looks like it will today: (if it’s 404 at the time you click it then it means it has already migrated ;))


It migrated to Byzantium now.

Hm, I still don’t get it, still chatty 0.5.0.beta3:

purism@pureos:~$ sudo apt update

chatty 0.5.0.beta3
joao@purism:~$ chatty --version
chatty 0.6.0

humm, this is on amd64 so something is happening here.

chatty 0.6.0-1pureos2 is now in byzantium for sure. You might have hit a bug where package lists don’t get updated for some (yet unknown) reason - try sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* and then sudo apt update.

Yes, that did the trick! With a -rf added:

sudo rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/*

Then the usual:

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

Now I have the new chatty version:

purism@pureos:~$ apt list chatty
Listing... Done
chatty/byzantium,now 0.6.0-1pureos2 arm64 [installed]
purism@pureos:~$ chatty --version
chatty 0.6.0

Thanks for your help!

Maybe an unrelated question, does this 0.6.0 Chatty version support MMS?

There is nothing in the release notes about new MMS functionality in version 0.6.0, but Chatty 0.5.0.beta3 added support for MMS, so version 0.6.0 should support it as well.

Yes, MMS works, and Chatty now shows images inline nicely instead of just file:// links as it was in some earlier chatty versions.

However, for me there is the problem that a normal incoming MMS that is sent from someone to me (that I would have expected to be part of my SMS conversation with that person) gets handled as part of a “group chat” so it appears as a separate conversation in Chatty. That’s a bit annoying, but the MMS does arrive which is the most important thing.

great news, I have to try this out as this was one must have feature I needed to make this phone my daily driver. I hope they improve how it shows up, but as long as it works, I can deal for now.
