What's New in Version 2.2.1

CAUTION: You may have to log out, delete the app, reinstall the app, and log back in when upgrading to this version. This is a one-time requirement.
It's easy to install and log in to this app. But after the session eventually expires (which must be just slightly longer than Apple's review process), it permanently fails to reconnect. The symptoms of the bug are incredible, almost as if they were designed, not missed. Picture the horror: any action causes a permanent state wherein an error screen appears on top of the UI, every 2 seconds, forever. Imagine that the most simple implementation of oauth fails 100% of the time when logging in. Imagine that force-quitting and relaunching gives you a 10 second window, but this window is locked and barred from the outside - a false hope, an exercise in withheld and then amplified frustration. Imagine that the entire issue occurs across every iOS platform.
Imagine that deleting and reinstalling the app does not fix the issue. Then contemplate an app review process that somehow fails to detect this. The center does not hold. We live in an amoral universe. Invisible hunters stalk our sanity at every turn, hidden behind every failing API call. There is no hope. Turn to Slack, or Hip chat. For god's sake, turn to AOL instant messenger. The human race is doomed. There is no escape.
Major connectivity issues.
Desktop version is a great tool. App is very deeply flawed, unusable at least 90% of time. I am logged in and do receive private message alert notifications outside of the app but nearly every attempt to connect in order to view or participate in chats fails. I have tried both on a steady wifi network and with a strong 3G connection, no dice. Other chat apps work fine on the device. Would be great if this tool functioned properly, at this time it does not.
Cannot log out to log back in
Update says to log out and log back in but notice saying cannot connect to Zulip makes this impossible. Cannot use app.
