Psst… don’t tell anyone, but; we’ve put an early release of Element X iOS on the App Store! It’s the fastest Matrix client ever, with an entirely new beautiful UI & UX. First release targets personal messaging, but lots more features coming soon!
Would you accept for merge translations files sent manually via email or Matrix? Localazy may work the best for you, that's ok, but it requires proprietary software to run and I really want to later help do Polish translation.
@didek probably - PRs to https://github.com/vector-im/element-x-ios/tree/develop/ElementX/Resources/Localizations could be a way too
@element first thing: I can’t login to my homeserver. As if it wasn’t running. Despite it working on the same iPad with the other element app. Known issue? My fault? Holding it wrong? 👀
@saladcat @element I think element x requires what they call a sliding sync proxy in front of the home server https://element.io/blog/element-x-experience-the-future-of-element/
@element does it automatically snitch on users to the police yet or is that coming in the next update?
@rail we'd rather get blocked in the UK than put surveillance into the app: https://element.io/blog/end-to-end-encryption-the-will-of-the-british-people/
@element You absolutely don't have to be sorry :)
It will be well enough if you simply cut ties with oppressive militias in all ways, shapes and forms 💖
@mrak you should wait for as long as it takes your account to normally log in from cold. n.b. this will only ever happen once, the very first time you ever log into EX.
@mrak impressive! well, if you log out and in again now it should take about 150ms, which sounds a bit like a 24,000x speedup ;)
@element but a new login on a different device only took 10s of seconds before, so this is orders of magnitude slower…
@sebastian by Element, yes - sorry; we're having to lean heavily on the latest iOS features, and we don't have manpower to keep supporting the old apps. However, there are loads of other Matrix clients which might support iOS 15, so you're not totally abandoned :)
@element can't wait for the android version to be ready. It looks better and better every week! Kudos!
@element Am I understanding correctly thaf current users of Element will stop receiving updates and will have to dowwnload a new app from the app store to get the all new Element (currently called ElementX)?
@blendergeek no, normal Element releases will continue until Element X has feature parity with Element.
@element At that point will ElementX be released as a simple upgrade to Element with no need to install a new app?
@[email protected] @[email protected] no, the normal Element app will stay some while. Element X has not yet implemented all features at all. It’s usable for early adopters that want to test it and give some feedback. You can also use it for basic communication but many things won’t work. Also the server has to support Sliding Sync which is not the case yet for every server. They did a blog post however, about it describing it much more precise than I could do here.
