  • If you are looking for a feature that we don't offer yet, you can tell us about it here.

Here are the highlights…

  • react-native-daily-js adds support for screen sharing
  • In react-native-daily-js and daily-js, you can now modify a user's admin permissions from within a call using the new canAdmin permission
  • react-native-daily-js and daily-js both add support for an IP proxy and the ability to provide your own TURN server infrastructure

daily-js

0.48.0

Admin permissions

Admin permissions can now be configured prior to joining a meeting or dynamically from within a meeting. Start learning about this new capability in the reference docs.

Advanced firewall controls

daily-js now supports an IP proxy and the ability to override Daily's TURN servers with your own. These new features will help customers who have users in a locked down network environment. Rather than provide an extensive allow list, these new features can help simplify the network requirements for your customers' environment.

Contact us to learn more.

Upcoming: Refactored local media controls

Starting in the next daily-js version (planned to be 0.49.0), new underlying logic will power the local media controls. You can test this logic yourself in the current version of daily-js by specifying dailyConfig: { v2CamAndMic: true } wherever you provide your call options.

For more information on this change, see this README.

If you have questions or find any issues in your testing, please let us know at (help@daily.co).

Daily Prebuilt

  • For mobile devices, added a confirmation step when stopping a recording. This aligns the UX between the desktop and mobile clients and prevents users from mistakenly stopping a recording.
  • Fixed an issue where chat would incorrectly identify a user as being offline.
  • Fixed an issue where Chrome users would sometimes see their computer go to sleep while in a call and sending media. Note: this is a Chrome regression, which will be fixed in Chrome M116. In the meantime, Prebuilt has added a patch to prevent this issue from occurring.
  • Fixed an issue with the breakout rooms feature where reassigning the host role would fail at times.
  • Fixed an issue with private rooms where clicking "Request to join" would not actually request to join.
  • Fixed an issue for mobile users where an emoji reaction wasn't sent under specific circumstances.
  • Fixed an issue where the layout would not transition back to a participant focused view if a user selected "bandwidth saving" mode while screen sharing.

Media Services

Features

  • Cloud recordings that are started by meeting tokens can now specify recording options through the sro token property.
  • 1call.startRecording({2 layout: {3 preset: 'custom',4 composition_id: 'daily:baseline',5 session_assets: {6 'components/overrides/decorateVideoGridItem.js': '[YOUR FILE URL HERE]',7 },8 },9});10
  • A new VCS layout hook called, useContentSize, is available. It allows a VCS layout function to discover the size of its nested contents after the first pass through the tree. Containers can then adapt to their content size while imposing min/max limits to text flows. An example composition in available in the VCS repository.

Improvements

  • fontWeight of a VCS Text component can now either be a string or a number.
  • With VCS, larger rectangles with rounded corners should now more closely match how video layers are rendered.

Bugfixes

  • VCS no longer allows fractional pixel units for attributes like cornerRadius.

REST API

Features

Improvements

  • Rate limiting has been added to the /logs endpoint (100 requests per 5 seconds).

Bugfixes

  • Fixed a bug where the /logs endpoint, given a userSessionId, would return logs from only one meeting session. We now return logs for all meeting sessions for a given userSessionId.
  • Extra input validations have been added to various endpoints.

Additional

  • The oldest supported version of daily-js is now 0.40.0.
