Hi Greg (and anyone else interested),
I just wanted to provide a brief update.
In November when I posted, we still used RestKit in three areas of the iOS app: guides, projects, and observations.
Since then, I’ve migrated guides away from Restkit. I also fixed a few bugs in authentication, added a new iNat network partner (ArgentiNat), and updated the app icon to reflect our new branding.
Right now, I’m working on migrating projects away from RestKit. I hope to release that in the next week or two. After that, I’ll get to work on migrating observations, which I plan to finish in January. Once that’s done, I’ll be able to start integrating third-party Swift libraries, and the first thing I’ll do is start integrating a third-party library picker that has multi-photo selection.
So, tentatively, I think sometime in January or February we will have multi-photo selection back.
I’ll provide another update later this month as I continue making progress.
