RT @[email protected]: The KDE community is adding @[email protected] to its instant messaging communication infrastructure. Join our server, get a cool KDE handle and become part of the KDE conversation.
We're very happy to officially welcome @[email protected] onto Matrix as they spin up their very own homeserver for http://kde.org (powered by @[email protected]) and adopt Matrix as their primary chat mechanism!! https://matrix.org/blog/2019/02/20/welcome-to-matrix-kde/
@switchingsocial thanks!! the only tweaks might be to mention:
* Matrix is an open standard managed by the non-profit Matrix.org Foundation (so folks are constantly building clients, bots, bridges etc)
* Matrix supports E2E encryption based around the Double Ratchet Algorithm (as popularised by Signal)
* Matrix isn’t just federated (like email) but also decentralised (like git). Each conversation is replicated over all participating servers so there is *no* single point of control or failure.
If you need to catch up on the avalanche Matrix news this week, start right here! Backend roadmap, Riot 1.0 (wow!), E2E Python, Python sans i/o SDK, .net SDK, tag-manager (yes!), telegram bridge 0.5.0rc2 and many more! https://matrix.org/blog/2019/02/16/this-week-in-matrix-2019-02-15/
(this resolved shortly afterwards - sorry for the outage and lag; hopefully we've clawed back some more headroom until the next wave of big perf improvements land)

Hey hey, ever wonder what we'll be working on next? We published a roadmap for backend development - there's even a video https://matrix.org/blog/2019/02/15/publishing-the-backend-roadmap/
@migratory To encrypt your chat, hit the cog button at the top right or click on the room name to go to Settings. Then in Security/Privacy you can turn on encryption. You have 6 copies of Riot listed because you'll have logged in on 6 different browser sessions; go to User Settings (click on your name in the top left) to view the 'devices' and delete the ones you are no longer using.
@bnjbvr because we've been too busy writing Riot to close out https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix.org/issues/113 :(
