February Release Notes: Part 1

There’s a brief yet important release note we’d like to share with you today.

SDKs:

Our Xamarin iOS plugin is now using the new Unified API, which means it has support for x64. We’ve also updated our Marmalade iOS extension with x64 support, both are now available on GitHub.
All other Pushwoosh iOS SDKs and plugins already support x64 architecture, so you are safe to submit your apps to Apple App Store.
Besides, during the last week we released updates for Native Android and iOS SDKs with various minor fixes and geolocation tracking improvements, and we strongly recommend updating your app with the latest version of Pushwoosh SDK.

Pushwoosh WordPress plugin is updated to version 2.3.11. Now the plugin supports custom post types, meaning that after you update the plugin you will be able to send pushes from any custom post you created in WordPress.

Control Panel:

We’ve added the long-awaited functionality to filter push notifications in the Push History based on the source of their creation. The other feature we’ve been asked for is the capability to export data from Push History.

Push History Data Export

Now you can export the list of push notifications in the CSV format for the chosen time period (1 day, 1 week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks & 1 month). The exported data currently includes:

  • Message ID
  • Date
  • Push text
  • Application or App Group
  • Target Platforms
  • Source (sent through API, CP, Geozone, etc.)

There is a limit on the number of pushes in the export – only most recent 100k pushes are included. We plan to add other metrics and data to this export in future.Another minor enhancement was made to RSS Feeds – from now on the system assigns a unique ID to each RSS Feed you create in Pushwoosh. This ID is passed along with every push notification triggered from the feed as an integer value of "rss_id" key, for instance:
{"rss":"http:\/\/example.org\/newsfeed","rss_id":5678}

There are more features and enhancements to the service to be released during this month, stay tuned!
