TL;DR not included
Hello and welcome to another episode of “Overwolf – Version Update”!
This version is quite feature packed, but before I go on listing all the new stuff you can play with, a quick word from our sponsors:
First of all, we finally got our new SDK out. To celebrate it, we partnered up with TeamSpeak, got great prizes from SteelSeries and Tobii, and launched an app development contest.
Another great thing I’d like to share with you is our League of Legends tournament, go see who’s already got past the qualifiers. You’re all invited to come check out the finals at our Gamescom booth, or watch it on Faceit’s Twitch channel.
. . .
Now let’s get down to business.
New in this version:
TS3 chat notifications – You asked for it and boy have we delivered. Chat notifications, both channel and private, will now be displayed in-game. We’ve even gone the extra mile of creating a quick-reply option for these notifications!
I’ve already spoiled the surprise, and it was no hoax. We’re happy to introduce the quick-reply option to all chat notifications in Overwolf. Pesky casuals can now be dismissed through the notification window. Have fun with it.
A new and improved browser framework – we tinkered with our browser’s engine, and now it sports CEF technology. This means the browser should feel even more snappy and responsive, and so should the apps. This is also the base of our great SDK, which now lets developers create apps with enhanced functionality.
FYI, CEF stands for Crazy Epic Fun (not really).
Last but not least, a lot of optimization and stability improvements have been done to TeamSpeak, so expect it work better than before. Be sure to check you have the latest version of TeamSpeak and Overwolf installed.
