We advise to upgrade as soon as possible. The disclosures will be out in 3 days (Thursday 3 August) boosted boosted

Huge thanks to @matrix what you built and and give is amazing and keeps on getting better. Working with #matrix daily and it’s a joy. boosted

Very nice to see #wordpress embrace @matrix -- and now a Wordpress login is all you need to start chatting.

I've long moved away from Wordpress (Hugo FTW) but Matrix is a daily part of my life and we're seeing good adoption in our #Kamailio nodes.

Matrix at IETF117, Commune's revival, a new Matrix Swift SDK… that and much more happened this week in Matrix! boosted

By the way, if you're into deploying your own Matrix bridge to Discord… I've got you covered!

It is almost time! On August 05-06 we will have a Matrix Devroom at FrOSCon with lots of interesting talks and workshops!

At the Matrix Stand you can ask us questions and buy some Matrix swag! 👕🤩

Messaging Layer Security (MLS) is now RFC 9420! MLS is a standard for end-to-end encryption in messaging systems. Many messaging systems, including @matrix, are working on supporting MLS. A huge thank you to @bifurcation and @raphaelrobert, and to many others, for their work on MLS. boosted
I'm happy to be working on MLS support for @matrix. You can see our progress at I've been working on it for several years now (the hardest part has been figuring out how to adapt it to work in a decentralised environment), but we're getting closer to something that's usable in clients. We have a proof-of-concept implementation (don't use it for anything serious, because it may self-destruct without warning), and some demo videos. And we'll be working on advancing our extensions for decentralisation into a standard, somehow.

Matrix and ActivityPub stuff going on in room 2 at #akademy2023 - and also important and definitely real, historical quotes ;) boosted boosted

Communal Bonfires; creating space for group-scale discourse on top of @matrix

Today we're pre-releasing Commune, our first foundational step towards a community platform built specifically for alignment with digital gardens.

Cyber-ecological messaging anyone?!

It's an evolving piece of software serving as the primary bonfire component of the overarching Community OS concept.

Element X on Conduit!

(doing the bare minimum for sliding sync to make it kind of work)


The release of Element X on the App Store, sliding sync in Conduit and expiring messages in Nheko, that and more happened this week in Matrix! boosted

The UK Online Safety Bill is continuing to progress through UK Parliament, putting end-to-end-encryption fundamentally at risk. Element tried to explain the disaster on the horizon to Sky News this morning: boosted


Cactus Comments has now seen over 1.2 million unique users - only counting guest users on our free public instance.

Guest users on instances not hosted by us and signed in users on any server don't even count in this statistic. has to be the Matrix server with most guest users at this point...

I keep spotting cactus in the wild as well. Last week I saw someone using it for the comment section of a livestream! So cool.

Psst… don’t tell anyone, but; we’ve put an early release of Element X iOS on the App Store! It’s the fastest Matrix client ever, with an entirely new beautiful UI & UX. First release targets personal messaging, but lots more features coming soon!

In case you missed it. Meredith at @signalapp was excellent at setting out the problems with UK Gov’s plans to back door end-to-end encryption. If you haven’t done already please support @openrightsgroup campaign on this #encryption #privacy #onlinesafetybill

There's been some confusion about over the last few weeks - we've written to try to clear things up.
