Oh, man missed his review by a hair. Those reconnection bugs have been
fixed in the new release, along with a great deal of others.

You are right that we are overdue with a clean listing of these. The
Xabber site is looking good on that front.
I will work with the iOS team who runs https://chatsecure.org to make
sure we have a clean listing there.

Georg, the Yaxim dev is on this list and our IRC channel. We do want
people to move to use GnuPG for Android, but the API isn't final just
yet. We are beginning to explore its use with ChatSecure, and will
share how it goes.
