This week's Matrix Live update is here right now for Patreon/Liberapay $10+ donors! Mentions, State Resets & more! https://www.patreon.com/posts/matrix-live-ep-2-13184927
We're releasing the Matrix Live vidcast for free, but with a 1 week delay; Patreon/Liberapay supporters get it live! https://www.patreon.com/posts/matrix-live-ep-1-13184800
@nightpool For some reason the other posts haven't made it to the mastodon.matrix.org instance, and I can't reply to them when looking at them at https://mastodon.social/users/privacylab/updates/3832830 so... i'm a bit lost, hence the bulk-reply.
@privacylab alas we're a long way from sustainable as yet; Patreon is approaching paying for half a dev, but we have ~10 folks working fulltime on Matrix atm.
@martensitingale agreed HTTP+JSON is ugly as sin; patches for better transports welcome! I get the concern that funding can corrupt FOSS, but we wouldn't have this far without funding; the problem is instead its absence.
The first ever Matrix show is up for Patreon $5+ supporters! Tune in for the latest from @firstname.lastname@example.org & @AmandineLePapeemail@example.com https://www.patreon.com/posts/matrix-live-1-12978476
Right, MastodonToTwitter has been unceremoniously punched and put into an enterprise loop; our birdsite<->mastodon sync should be somewhat improved now... :)
There's a thread over at HN on our funding adventures for those interested: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=14717965 (to donate: https://matrix.org/blog/2017/07/07/a-call-to-arms-supporting-matrix/)!
After 24h we're up to >$2^10/M on Patreon + >$2^7/M on Liberapay. THANK YOU!!! This helps pay for ~1d of dev a week! https://matrix.org/blog/2017/07/07/a-call-to-arms-supporting-matrix/
Autocompleting emoticons into emoji is on the horizon in Riot/Web, but only strictly on demand (by hitting tab, or turning on auto)!
