Conversations will be available for free on the Google Play Store starting tomorrow, Friday May 1st and through the entire weekend.
That will be a perfect opportunity to get your loved ones on XMPP and try out the new video calls.

It's great to see people turning to decentralized and self-hosted communication tools at a time when they are more important than ever!

installations have doubled since mid-March. We suspect a lot of these are setups, partly fuelled by increasing discomfort with a lack of privacy in centralized commercial services.

Data is from the Debian popcon service, so only represents a small part of the picture (Debian systems that have opted into reporting their package installation and usage data).

Turns out Zoom is another hugely popular application that uses #XMPP under the hood.

BTW, when developing an XMPP app, make sure to check that a particular user is allow to execute a particular operation ;)

Hopefully final update here, muc.xmpp.org is back online!

The rooms should reappear on search.jabber.network/ shortly. Meanwhile the list at xmpp.org/community/chat.html can be used as an overview of the primary rooms hosted there.

Hey, team lead for the Standards Foundation infrastructure team here.

The server that handles XSF web (xmpp.org, wiki.xmpp.org, xmpp.net) and chatrooms (muc.xmpp.org) went down early on 2020-03-20. The cause is currently unknown, we are awaiting a response from the hosting provider.

Meanwhile we have already restored wiki.xmpp.org onto a new server from our latest nightly backups, and other services will follow as soon as possible.

Please be kind to everyone in these difficult and disruptive times!

@0 @Truck @humanetech I have already implemented a decentralised issue tracker on top of XMPP/PubSub (cf. salut-a-toi.org and bugs.goffi.org, UI/UX will get some improvements soon), the advantages are the same as for blogging + common PubSub API to manage it.

Happy #freesoftware day 2020!

Even though they technically don't make software, I'd like to thank the XMPP Standards Foundation ( @xmpp ) and their members for their work on open standards and decentralized communication.

I'd also like to thank @matrix which shares the same goals.

A special thanks goes to halfshot for building the matrix-bifrost bridge which connects both protocols.

Let's liberate communication together!

Did you know that Plasma Mobile apps from KDE are working well on PureOS too? :) This is Kaidan, a Kirigami XMPP client, working smoothly on a Librem 5 @kaidan @kde
