Subject Re: 0.9.10 / IOS 10 swipe from left opens wrong menu
Date Mon, 26 Sep 2016 21:44:30 GMT
Hi Philip,

First, to clarify: there is no 0.9.10 yet. The next release will be
0.9.10-incubating, and the version numbers have been bumped in
anticipation of getting that moving forward, but until an official
release is made this is still bleeding-edge git.

Now, as for the swipe issue:

iOS Safari uses a swipe from the left as the "go backward in history"
gesture. This isn't something that's new, but there are external
reasons you may have not encountered this until now. It would have
conflicted with Guacamole's "open menu" gesture for all releases of
Guacamole having that gesture, including 0.9.9. There is no way for
JavaScript itself to override this, but you can do so yourself by
making a shortcut to Guacamole on your home screen. A web application
run from within the context of such a shortcut will run full-screen,
without the browser's URL bar, buttons, etc., and without interference
from the browser's own gestures.
(top is Android, scroll down a bit for iOS and others)
