We just released Nheko 0.9.1!
This is a small bug fix release. If you reported an issue, there is a 15% chance it is fixed now! This release also supports pinned messages, although those will only show up after someone changed the pinned messages in a room currently. Spaces are nested, there is quick access to your recently used reactions and direct chats in the sidebar. Apart from tons bugfixes and smaller improvements.

Synapse's team has been working on improving Matrix's identity server's type coverage.
Why? Why now? How? And was it worth it?
David walks us through the team's typing journey!

🗞️ TWIM is published!
The week is over, and the year nearly too. The Matrix Community has been busy this week again for the last issue of TWIM of 2021!
The theme of the week could have been "annotations", but there's so much more it wouldn't be fair
This week's Matrix Live contains no less than 5 demos, including the very exciting sync v3 we teased earlier this week.
You will also discover polls, timeline jumps, easy bridges and maximised widgets.
Are you working on an exciting project using Matrix? Give a talk at @[email protected] in the Matrix dev room!
These are the last few days to submit a proposal, be quick!
Well the new Swift Playgrounds app for iPadOS is rather wonderful! It is super easy to add a Swift Package and create a fully function app 🥳
Oh hello - this looks really cool :D https://github.com/signalapp/Signal-Calling-Service + https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/blob/matthew/group-voip/proposals/3401-group-voip.md = ? 🤔🤨🧐🤔😁
Signal now supports 40 person group calls. Building large end-to-end encrypted group calls required some new engineering. Learn how we did it here: https://signal.org/blog/how-to-build-encrypted-group-calls/
This is *huge* news - the DMA has passed in the EU Parliament, including the interoperability extension to social media, mandating that the big tech gatekeepers must adopt open standards for interoperability. The world is changing... :D #CompDM
The European Parliament has adopted its position on the Digital Markets Act #DMA with 642 votes for, 8 against, and 46 abstentions.
We've published a blog post to explain the impact of the log4j security vulnerabilities on the Matrix ecosystem: https://matrix.org/blog/2021/12/15/on-matrix-and-the-log-4-j-vulnerabilities. TL;DR: if you run your own Jitsi or signald (or other java-based component), you need to apply mitigations immediately.
It's the last week to submit your proposals for the Matrix dev room at FOSDEM!
Whether you want to give a lightning talk to showcase your project or a longer talk to get more in depth, you can have a look at our CfP to get all the details.
See you all next year!!!🛰️🌎🌍🌏
