With version 0.9.0 of remoteStorage.js, your app will be compatible with the new spec, which we published recently.
There are 2 breaking changes, which may or may not affect your app:
getListingnow uses a different format and returns more details (namely content type and -length) for servers using the new spec: http://remotestorage.io/doc/code/files/baseclient-js.html#RemoteStorage.BaseClient.getListing
The scope for claiming access to an entire remote storage has been renamed from “
root” to “
Apart from adding support for the new spec, basic i18n support was added, the codebase was cleaned up from top to bottom, a
setSyncInterval method was added, and a lot of bugs were fixed:
- Fix multiple overlapping requests on first pageload
- Fix requests going to non-ready cache before initial sync finished
- Better error messages in widget
- Label change events from initial sync as ‘local’ if they come from local
- Add in-memory storage for when neither IndexedDB nor localStorage are available
- Move the example server and example apps to gh:remotestorage/starter-kit
- Fix minor issues in the experimental GoogleDrive backend (in dark launch)
