New Wauwl release stores messages between sessions

A new Wauwl has been released today in Google Play Store. Under the hood, there are some major fixes to enshure improved connectivity, cached messages when the connection breaks and restores. Below you will find the changelog for version 2.0.7.

I have tried to put the complete changelog on Google Play Store in the “Recent Changes” textarea but it only allows up to 500 characters so I have skipped the bugfixes there. Now I am currious where these recent changes will popup since I haven’t managed to find them yet :-).
