Akord Changelog | Exploring key management systems

Exploring key management systems
One of our main tasks last week was to explore other key management options to provide users with a sign up option that didn’t require them to store the backup phrase. We believe there are options that could work, but they require further research. For now, we’ll be continuing to require users to store a backup phrase, as any alternative we could implement at this point would introduce security vulnerabilities within the collaborative context of Akord.
Since our last update, we’ve deployed a bunch of miscellaneous improvements to the Akord UI. The most significant change was adding the functionality to handle duplicate file uploads. If you try and upload a file with the same name, you’ll now be prompted if you want to keep both copies or add the upload as a new version of the file. (You can add new versions to any file from the file menu.)
Other improvements and fixes
  • We now enforce pressing the “Post” button to send encrypted messages, to help prevent accidentally sending messages when you try to add a line break.
  • The chat bubbles on the timeline now have a colour outline instead of solid colour, which allows for better contrast on the type and improved readability.
  • The X close icon now has consistent behaviour across different contexts and breakpoints.
  • The spellcheck underline from the password field has been removed.
  • We changed the colour of the white text in dark mode to an off white colour to take off the edge and ease reading.
  • We cleaned out some issues with the filter on the timeline, so all options were clear and only those available displayed.
This week we’re working on archiving data rooms. Stay tuned…
