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!
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 ;)
Website (xmpp.org) is now up and running, including the XSF blog and XEPs. XMPP service itself to follow!
Hey, team lead for the #XMPP 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!

Should be an nice easy weekend project for Synology owners :)
Movim 0.17 – Catalina has been released! And because today is #iloveFS day, thanks to the author for their continued work on the project 😘 ! https://nl.movim.eu/?node/pubsub.movim.eu/Movim/87633da7-3963-4923-aabc-54ac5f6ad1d8 #XMPP
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!
Curious about the history behind the launch of Snikket? Have a read of the latest Prosody blog post: https://blog.prosody.im/introducing-snikket/
why @eff isn't mentioning XMPP and conversations in this page? are whatsapp and signal paying their ads in the website?
We launched the project today, and it has been great talking to lots of supportive people at #FOSDEM! If you didn't find us yet, we'll be at the Realtime Lounge in K building again tomorrow!
Are there *users* that have problems with using markdown / markup / message styling?
