I have trouble with the current one, when typing in my iPhone it sometimes eats the last character after submitting. I home the new one fixes this.

I love the timestamps and date titles/separators - sometimes it's the little things. And also the small vs. big text button - so much easier to understand their function now!

Although, it would be great for longer messages to adjust the size of the text area.

Great news! The chat was too heavy for most of my machines and did not worked at my working place which by instance is behind a proxy

Could you block the links to the google form on public chat, we all put our e-mails up, and wouldn't want them collected by the spam bots.

I'll send the link to the form out in the reminder email

Public chat is just something that will be possible with the new engine, but we won't be activating it automatically. We'll have to evaluate all the pros & cons. This one is a great point - it might make more sense to create a new channel that's public only from beginning and leave the Hack Chat private. Thanks!
