v1.4.2 – 12th September 2018 Archived
- Fixed a bug where an error fetching past events on subscriber initialisation would prevent receiving any future events.The API still reports the error in the console, records it in the
LearnosityEvents.errorslist and sends it to the
errorListenerif specified, but now continues to send subscribe requests to retrieve new events and deliver them to the application.
- Fixed the messages reported on backend errors. Previously, raw backend error responses were reported verbatim in the console. An additional error message is now reported, if available, giving more context about what the error means for the API (e.g., fatal or not). This does not impact what gets recorded (i.e, the error only) in
LearnosityEvents.errorsnor sent to the
- Fixed a bug where requests denied with 4xx HTTP errors would be retried in a tight loop. This prevents overloading the backend with a lot of known-incorrect requests. As before, the request is passed to the caller's
errorListener, allowing it to be informed about the issue and take further corrective action if needed.
v1.4.1 – 11th July 2018 Archived
- Made the retry-on-error behavior less aggressive by batching all retried publish events into fewer requests. This reduces the load on both clients and server in case of transient failures, and avoids compounding the problem while ensuring past events do not get lost.
- Fixed the way cross-domain iframe is served, it is now using requested version by server side determination. This allows better forward compatibility.
