It’s beginning to look a lot like… Dendrite v0.3.4! 🎈 Packed with bug fixes and performance improvements. If you’re running Dendrite, please upgrade! https://github.com/matrix-org/dendrite/releases/tag/v0.3.4
Say hello to Cerulean - a highly experimental Matrix client demonstrating how you can build a public microblogging service on Matrix... and acting as a test bed for official threading support in Matrix (and decentralised reputation!) 🐦🐘💙 https://matrix.org/blog/2020/12/18/introducing-cerulean
Our redirect service has been reloaded! https://matrix.org/blog/2020/12/17/matrix-to-reloaded Read about the latest design and updates on http://matrix.to, which we think will make onboarding users easier
Ah I am loving the integration of @[email protected] with @[email protected]! it feels like a much more modern and usable interface and I can keep access to all the old rooms/communities I was part of on gitter ✨
Element Matrix Services now allows organisations to migrate from Slack to Element in a matter of minutes! 🎉
Freedom for Slack users who want digital sovereignty, end-to-end encryption and all the benefits of an open network!
Great news from the EU pushing interoperability between messaging apps! 🎉
A win for consumers to choose any messaging app, and communicate with anyone.
Great potential for @[email protected] to be the interoperable communications layer for the open web!
Lots of folks are asking for the source: https://ec.europa.eu/commission/presscorner/detail/en/ip_20_2347 has the details. "Require gatekeepers to proactively put in place certain measures, such as targeted measures allowing the software of third parties to properly function and interoperate with their own services;"
We *used* to have that with XMPP (google, facebook) before they decided to wall off their users. Would love to see this return with Matrix. https://twitter.com/matrixdotorg/status/1338924188782956548
Today we are proposing a set of new rules for all digital services: the Digital Services Act and the Digital Markets Act.
We want to make sure users have access to a wide choice of safe products and services online, and that businesses compete fairly and freely.
We heard you like Dendrites, so here’s one year in Dendrite development — including a new public deployment! https://matrix.org/blog/2020/12/15/dendrite-2020-progress-update
Simply great: https://matrix.org/blog/2020/12/07/gitter-now-speaks-matrix
Finally, all public #usegalaxy gitter channels can be accessed through matrix!
Well done @matrix
Now I'd only wish there was a mobile client with support for multiple accounts that I could use for professional *and* private communication.
This really isn't sci-fi. Look at how quickly Gitter was incorporated into the @[email protected] open standard. https://matrix.org/blog/2020/12/07/gitter-now-speaks-matrix Everyone benefits. https://twitter.com/avc/status/1336986962255867904
It's Friday (again!) so it must be time to read This Week in Matrix! With fun demos, all new bridges, admin API controls, mugs and more https://matrix.org/blog/2020/12/11/this-week-in-matrix-2020-12-11 #twim #matrix #decentralization
Yup, especially since good decentralized & open protocols already exist - Mastodon, @[email protected], etc https://twitter.com/avc/status/1336986962255867904
In @[email protected]'s Open Tech Will Save Us Meetup #9, @[email protected] talks about the spinning out of the WebThings project from Mozilla, explains how to build your own private smart home with WebThings Gateway and gives a whistle-stop tour of the Web Thing API.
Now would be a great moment for @[email protected] to consider opening their communication silos via an open standard, to prove they’re not trying to vendor-lock their users. (Plus we could solve e2ee between WA, FB and IG)
