Dino 0.1 is released! 🎉
Dino is a secure and open-source application for decentralized messaging. It uses the XMPP (“Jabber”) protocol and is interoperable with other XMPP clients and servers. We aim to provide an intuitive, clean and modern user interface.

For the XMPP sprint last weekend we rented a house near Stockholm instead of using a conference room. We worked together on implementing and improving a new group chat bookmarks specification, Jingle interoperability issues and a future landing page for new XMPP users. There have been long nights and tasty crêpes. #XMPP #XMPPSprint #Stockholm
Support for #Jingle file transfer over #SOCKS5 was merged into #Dino. SOCKS5 enables data transfer without an intermediary but also supports transfer via a server if a #firewall prohibits direct transfer. Data transfer over the #XMPP stream ("In-Band-Bytestream") has an overhead due to encoding, but serves as a fallback if http file upload and SOCKS5 fail.
