The WordPress project is looking to move its chat system from Slack over to the open-source Matrix software https://make.wordpress.org/meta/2023/01/25/a-meta-subproject-for-evaluating-matrix/. I am sooooo keen on this.

Discord is the worst thing to happen to niche communities. A forum that cant be archived, can't be read without membership, cant be indexed on Google or Wayback for searchability. We let one company monopolize the majority of our communication.

Performance updates in Synapse, 100% parity with Synapse for the server-server API in Dendrite, and Element X Android progressing well.
That, and much more happened this week in Matrix!
🚨 Product update 🚨
Threads is now live on all platforms... we repeat, threads is now live on all platforms!
A big thanks to the team for all their hard work on this and we hope you're in your Element using it 💚
It's been a while, but yesterday we released Dendrite 0.10.9, containing our first Helm chart, several bug fixes and optimizations™
Indescribably exciting to have just been the first ever(!) person to enter Matrix in VR, thanks to @[email protected]'s first cut of WebXR support. Add in freeform scripting via our WebSG API and built-in direct-manipulation scene editor, and the possibilities will be infinite!! 🤯🚀👽
It was a good day at online #CreativeFreedomSummit! We chatted in @matrix room, got there #PeerTube stream and #Etherpad widgets, just-in-time transcribed captions synchronized with the speakers as well (very convenient for folks that can't rely on sound for whatever reason, #a11y). Heard a lot of useful insights about #Inkscape and #Penpot, my questions got answers.
Two more days of the summit are coming, starting with the scheduled stream in <17 hours from the time I post this. 🔴
Anyways, I’m not sure how accesible Matrix is, but there is like a web client etc. Maybe it could at least be a place to try building a community there? https://matrix.to/#/%23elementary-support%3Amatrix.org

Big news: Gitter is officially ascending entirely into Matrix: we’re migrating the historical Gitter service into being a Gitter-branded Element in Feb 2023. We’ve migrated all the historical accounts & data, so it should be transparent: read all at https://blog.gitter.im/2023/01/16/gitter-is-going-fully-native-matrix-in-feb-2023/
The #CreativeFreedomSummit will start in 4 days, January 17-19!

Wikipedia now knows Matrix rooms, encrypted rooms support in hookshot, lots of clients updates… that and much more happened this week in Matrix!
The first Third Room Developer Meetup will be this Thursday at 9:00 AM PST. Come join us and learn about what's coming soon in Third Room, ask us questions, and show off what you're working on! This first meetup we'll be focusing on Web Scene Graph.
While the default experience is with #Element, there are several other neat Matrix clients you can use.
Then you can check out Fedora's Matrix room as well: https://matrix.to/#/#fedora:fedoraproject.org
A massive year for the Matrix community, group calls in Hydrogen, and the revival of the matrix-art gallery… that and much more happened this week in Matrix!
