I mean come on, isnt this the cutest spider you've ever seen?

Reminder that we're going to start doing a This Week In Matrix blog post to try to summarise progress across the *whole* Matrix community and ecosystem. Please jump into & submit your updates before Friday morning GMT so we can incorporate them!!

1.6.0 has been released and is available to all beta testers on Google Play as of now!
Full rollout coming in the next days assuming beta testers do not find any major bugs.
Read the changelog:

Bryan Lunduke's message to Mastodon developers:

"If you're listening, we need an ability to move between servers & migrate an account between servers where people who are following that account get updated in some way to follow it on a new server".

The issue was such: went down. Lunduke lost all of his account data with it being the most followed (4000) person on that particular server.

How to address this problem?


Gmail enters the "extend" phase of Embrace, Extend, Extinguish by creating new proprietary features for email then forcing non-gmail users the view the mail through a link with Google Login (and sometimes SMS confirmation!)

Just watched the Blade Runner 2049. Not impressed with the movie. Have you watched it? What is your take? For me - too stretched and unmemorable.

Have been using Manjaro Linux for the last 14 days and enjoying it, very much. Much more than I enjoy Fedora.

Not exactly Arch Linux vanilla or anything, but this is the best.

Matrix is now on Mastodon! We'll be crossposting between the birdsite & + looking into proper Matrix bridging. Come follow!

Welcome new followers! If you're not aware, I'm a member of the team and a photo nerd.

Please feel free to come join us so we can all be photo nerds together! :D

Reddit is down? REDDIT. IS. DOWN !

Problem with the cloud subscription model (IMO) is that you can be switched off, and you own less than a perpetual purchase ie. when you end your subscription you have no software to read your saved information. Of course if you save it using the international format you can still use free to read it but how many corporates plan for this.


An excellent article on Mastodon by Shel Holtz @SLHoltz ; the title is misleading ๐Ÿ˜ƒ if you ask me, the article is one of the best summaries of social networking and whither .

I agree with this,
"More compelling, though, is to have accounts on each of the instances that revolve around your specific interests, engaging heavily on the local scene and using the federation for related conversations."
Don't miss this gem!

@Support @Gargron please help. I'm still not receiving any posts from @gamingonlinux
