Discourse Hub app does not work on latest stable any more

We have received a number of reports from users that updated their Discourse app to version 1.4 on their iOS device and now they are receiving an error ‘this forum is using an outdated version of Discourse’.

We have been able to pin this down to this commit made 7 days ago https://github.com/discourse/discourse/commit/8e274f7296e4da68b591ce4d4299fece850e0492#diff-89bbbba04fc8c94f4674d69543ce701f which bumps the API key version from 2 to 3. Apparently the new app requires it to be version 3.
I cannot find why this change has been made (I would expect that there would be related commits or something, they probably are there but I don’t know where to find them).

Would it be hard to backport this to stable ?

Yes I think I could backport to stable, so we would need to cherry pick:


@sam are you ok with this ?


Yeah we can not have the app totally broken on stable


Ok I backported it: https://github.com/discourse/discourse/commits/stable

Will track travis to check there are no issues, but should be good. I also tried it on a 1.4 app and a local stable app :ok_hand:

Thanks for suggesting this.


Travis is failing but it’s a totally unrelated error (which was already there at previous commit Travis CI - Test and Deploy Your Code with Confidence), should be good.


Yes, stable is working again with the Discourse iOS app! Thanks for the quick fix!!!


Any ideas why I am getting the same error message “this forum is using an outdated version of Discourse” if my Discourse is running v2.2.0.beta3? Specifically this commit?

As far as I can tell the API key in this version is 3, so there must be another reason.

Edit: Looks like this was already answered over here. Sorry!
