@kde This application looks really good 👍 Unfortunately the Android app doesn't work on my old phone but I'll try it on the PinePhone when I test a distribution with Plasma Mobile.It's really important to have native applications for such an important messenger as Electron isn't a acceptable solution.

@kde Pity that multiple-account support has been axed. Why does everyone suppose that all #Matrix users have only got one account for everything?

@MartinG
Why axed?

Is it explicitly marked as a no implement?
@kde

@nurinoas @kde I've seen it crossed out on the feature list in the official client matrix on matrix.org.

@Dashtop @MartinG @kde I checked it. #neochat can have several accounts.

the #ee2e features need a bit more development.

The UI could also entertain some consistency. typical #kde where settings are hidden at many places.

Besides, very promising once it goes on par with Element

@MartinG @kde hmm NeoChat supports multiple-accounts, the ux for switching between accounts is just not great but it's here and I do plan to improve it.

@kde Nice!

I also like the KQuickImageEditor library very much. When seeing it I was immediately thinking it might be worth merging it with the annotation features from Spectacle. That way the editor would provide more useful features (I think up par with what Windows has for its simple image viewer) plus the experience is more streamlined between different apps from where it can easily be used (like Spectacle, possibly more to follow).
