Happy #freesoftware day 2020!
Even though they technically don't make software, I'd like to thank the XMPP Standards Foundation ( @xmpp ) and their members for their work on open standards and decentralized communication.
I'd also like to thank @matrix which shares the same goals.
A special thanks goes to halfshot for building the matrix-bifrost bridge which connects both protocols.
Let's liberate communication together!

Synapse v1.10.0 has landed, it contains an important cross-signing fix, as well as some anti-abuse measures. Checkout the blog post for more details https://matrix.org/blog/2020/02/12/synapse-1-10-0-released
Trying to archive slack DMs (dissapearing messages, infinite scroll vs. printing, etc etc) makes me like riot/matrix even more. I guess everybody knows slack isn't archival, and resists archiving at the platform level right? 🙄

We've pushed a fifth and (almost certainly!) final release candidate for Synapse v1.10.0, which provides an improved temporary workaround for alias abuse (by filtering out http://m.room.aliases) while we finish a full fix. Please test! https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/releases/tag/v1.10.0rc5
We've pushed a third and final(?) release candidate for Synapse v1.10, which provides a temporary workaround for alias abuse (by filtering out http://m.room.aliases) while we finish a full fix. Please test! https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/releases/tag/v1.10.0rc3
Just watched the amazing @[email protected] E2E encryption FOSDEM talk. It has demos + a very honest discussion about how they arrived at the current solution. I'm particularly excited to see that corporate usecases are at the top of their design concerns! https://fosdem.org/2020/schedule/event/matrix/

Really impressed with @[email protected] @[email protected] beta app "RiotX" on Android. It makes for a lovely, top tier Matrix experience. I encourage all my techie followers to check it out: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=im.vector.riotx
I finished up installing a matrix synapse server for the new LJSTHW service. Matrix is *tight*. It's easy to install, and start using sqlite3. What happens next? You always need to get off sqlite3 and that sucks.
So they wrote this:
Wow. So good.

They clearly really truly care about going P2P and making Matrix for everyone... and even got some good demos in! 👏
