We're excited to host the first ever Foundation and Community devroom at! A full day of talks, demos and workshops around Matrix itself and projects built on top of Matrix 🏗️

Send us your proposals!

@jonny note that this difference is also because published research is the closest thing we have to codified human knowledge of "the truth". In that sense a criticism of published work is actually working as intended, I think.

The enthusiasm when sharing results from your research is what I generally experienced when doing research on my PhD, even with groups that disagreed on our interpretation of the results in papers.

@jonny right? Also, they are doing some very cool stuff with their pinecone overlay network, see for instance:

@room FluffyChat 1.0.0 has been released featuring a new design, a lot of bug fixes, better performance, a theme switcher, end to end encryption by default, better spaces support and much much more!

❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

@jonny matrix p2p would do it, not quite out of alpha though

@josias @Truck @aral that sounds like a great opportunity to have some fun with commit messages

Nheko 0.9.0 is out! A lot of people contributed to it, so check it out on Flathub or here:

The changelog is slightly longer than 500 characters, but look forward to lots of E2EE improvements, room directory support, custom sticker packs, token authenticated registration, new icons, jdenticons, animated images, accepting knocks, limited spaces support, message forwarding, a new media player and a lot more! 🐈‍⬛

@aral if you like that be sure to give kdeconnect a look, it's awesome!

@jonny yeah, I am certainly all for preventing/breaking the chrome monopoly.

@jonny not using chrome is something I certainly stand behind, but as far as I can tell it is not the case that all chromium based browsers will be able to block view source. What I understood is that this change is made specifically for enterprise browsers.

That's not to say that implementing it in enterprise browsers is a good idea, though.

@SteveKLord because the whole project has long since separated from amdocs, and it has always been a project made in the UK and France, by French and English people.

@SteveKLord this post is outdated, and itself also largely FUD, most notably the link with Israel is an unfair association. Otherwise it is a fairly bad summary of a research paper by someone who was kicked out for being an unproductive community member.

There were some valid points in said research, which have been addressed and fixed, and since then a lot of improvements have been made for a more private ecosystem.
If you would like to discuss point by point feel free to ask

@WandelStock dat is natuurlijk een legitieme keus, maar deze hele thread gaat erover dat dit een slecht idee is.

@SteveKLord @FediFollows @session session isn't actually decentralized or federated, it's just centralized with extra steps. At least it was last time I looked at it.

@WandelStock @FediFollows @snikket_im @xmpp @matrix @delta @briar @Jami @threemaapp threema suffers from the same issues as signal, it is still a closed silo, with a single entity controlling everything.

What's your primary OS?

Boosts appreciated for sample size :)
