Well here we go, a Synapse release candidate fresh from the press. 1.6.0rc1 contains federation support for cross signing, version 5 rooms by default and prep for database sharding. Check it out if you would like to help us test https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/releases/tag/v1.6.0rc1
@sofia yeah, it’s something we’re thinking of in the context of MSC1228: https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/1228
I met @[email protected] today, to talk about the challenges of being open source, federated, secure *and* thinking about content issues.
They think these goals are compatible, and can be done better than in closed, centralised environments.
This is very interesting! #onlineharms

Using @[email protected] to notify me via @[email protected] when the temperature drops below 20°C, meaning that my boiler goes in error state while waiting for the heating guy to come and fix this...
At least, I can reset the boiler before it's too cold!
Get the latest news from the Matrix project and ecosystem - also the return of Matrix Live, with a chat (ha!) with the author of Ditto Chat, a new React Native client https://matrix.org/blog/2019/11/15/this-week-in-matrix-2019-11-15/
Over the next few hours we'll be migrating the http://matrix.org homeserver database cluster to bare-metal hardware in order to regain reliable IO. Apologies again for the recent disruption, but we're almost out the other side (hopefully).
http://matrix.org homeserver is still suffering badly from IO problems. we’re trying to accelerate the migration to the new datacentre. sorry for the outage :(
Freenode bridge overloaded the http://matrix.org homeserver due to netsplits, meanwhile IO problems are still there. HOWEVER, we have a new datacenter ready to go which benchmarks ~10x faster - expecting to migrate over early next week.
We're at the @[email protected] in Paris promoting @[email protected] today - if you're a government wanting an encrypted self-sovereign alternative to WhatsApp or Slack then come talk to us in the corner of the exhibition space! #GovTechSummit2019
@ptman we’d like it to be consistent to avoid maintaining two codepaths
We're considering changing how tab-complete works in Riot/Web in order to improve accessibility. Rather than overriding & trapping the tab key to cycle over the options, the idea is to press tab to start completing, up/down to pick an option, and then tab or enter to accept.
@Clifford there's https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/tree/master/contrib/systemd although it's 3rd party
PSA: We've been made aware of attempts to scan for private Matrix servers and join rooms from their room directories. ***Please make sure your room directory and rooms are locked down if you run a private server** - for more details see: https://matrix.org/blog/2019/11/09/avoiding-unwelcome-visitors-on-private-matrix-servers. Please pass it on
