The European Commission has funded an open source project to create a Gateway between the ActivityPub and XMPP PubSub Protocols, and E2EE on PubSub

From goffi: "it's my pleasure to announce that an ActivityPub XMPP gateway doubled with Pubsub end-to-end encryption project has been selected for a grant by NLNet/NGI0 Discovery Fund (with financial support from European Commission's Next Generation Internet programme)".
The XMPP ActivityPub gateway will join two major open and decentralised protocols. In practice it will be a XMPP server component (usable with any server), and implement the ActivityPub server to server protocol (or "Federation Protocol"). On XMPP side, it will be mostly a Pubsub service (with some extra, like private messages converted to XMPP message stanza).
XMPP blogging (XEP-0277: Microblogging over XMPP) will be used, and thus any client supporting it will have access to ActivityPub publications (Libervia and Movim for instance). squeet.me/objects/962c3e10d49f

Familiar with :apple_inc: Swift, UIKit, and know your way around XCode? Want to help advance the state of #XMPP on #iOS? :xmpp: 📱 We're looking for developers to help bring our iOS app over the finish line! 🏁

This will be a paid short-term project producing FLOSS. DM or email matthew@snikket.org if you're interested.

Not an iOS dev? That's okay, boosts appreciated too! 🙂

Very excited to announce that #NGI DAPSI will be funding user account data export and migration in #Snikket and #XMPP! This project will give people more control over their data and ensure they are never locked into a specific XMPP provider.

Five months after Gajim 1.2.2, we’re proud to announce the release of Gajim 1.3.0! Many new features have been developed since, including a complete redesign of both Gajim’s Preferences window and configuration backend, an all new Profile window, support for Chat Markers, a new user interface for voice/video calls, and much more.

So I can run Libervia-mobile (aka Cagou) on mobile () on with and x11 backend (not so far, unfortunately).

It doesn't run full screen, widgets opacity is broken, virtual keyboard is removed on each keypress (touch seem to be transmitted on the widget behind keyboard) and it crashes all the time.

Load of work to make it work smoothly, but that's a beginning!

Not my priority at the moment, just playing a bit for now.

Tomorrow morning I will be giving a talk for #FOSDEM online. I'll be looking at the differences between building a protocol and a product. And also that inevitable question... is the ecosystem moving?! 🙂

Well well, it's not done the port of Libervia-mobile (aka Cagou) on . I've tried on and , which are using , and after many rebuilds I could finally launch it… with x11 backend.

Now I have issues with the virtual keyboard of , way too small, and the one of Mobian doesn't detect the input field, and is funny when I activate it manually.

It's a pity, because it's quite cool to see it running on Pinephone, I hope that I can make it usable soon.
