Toxcore v0.2.0 released

We are happy to announce the release of Toxcore v0.2.0. Download the tarballs, verify the signatures and read the changelog on Toxcore’s GitHub Releases page.

Some of the notable changes in this release are: fix for large video frame corruption [1], removal of libtoxdns [2], small API breaking changes in tox.h, toxav.h and toxencryptsave.h [3], [4], [5], [6], [7], [8], API deprecation notices for APIs that will get removed in v0.3.0 [9], and a build script change that results in a single big libtoxcore library being built, instead of separate libtoxcore, libtoxav and libtoxencryptsave like it was before [10]. One of the changes that we hoped would get in v0.2.0 but it didn’t was persistent group chats, but with how things are going it’s set to be added in one of the v0.2.x releases.

Some clients already have support for Toxcore v0.2.0, for example Toxic v0.8.2 and qTox master, while other clients are working on adding the support.
