The past weekend some members of the XMPP community gathered in Düsseldorf to work on the next iteration of the OMEMO End to End Encryption Specification. All of us agree that the result - version 0.4 of XEP-0384 - is a huge step forward and better than ever! blog.jabberhead.tk/2020/03/10/

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.

Following last years tradition we'll have a #fdroid meetup at #36C3 on the day 1 at 1400.
Last year we had a room with 12 seats and 60 minutes, this year we'll have a lot more space at #cbase and 90 minutes 🙂.

There will be lots of stickers. See you all there.

Dino's app menu now contains a "Keyboard Shortcuts" list and an "About Dino" dialog that displays the app version and other meta info. The current git master has the version 0.0~git594.20191218.9fe84505. Upcoming: Version 0.1. #Dino #XMPP

Multi-user chats are often divided into two use cases: Groups and Channels. In Groups you talk with specific people about varying topics, while in Channels you talk with a changing set of people about a specific topic.
Dino displays a list of member names as the default Group name and uses member avatars to generate a default Group avatar. Both features wouldn't make sense in a Channel with a continuously changing set of members. #Dino #XMPP

Testing an upcoming feature during the #Stockholm XMPP sprint: Leave a group chat on #Dino and #Conversations will leave as well, join a new group chat on Conversations and Dino will join too. The underlying protocol extension was also implemented by #Gajim and #prosody during the sprint. #XMPP

With recent changes Dino can now transfer files via an OMEMO encrypted Jingle stream (XEP-0391). This enables the encrypted peer-to-peer exchange of large files with other supporting clients. Conversations also supports this in its latest release. #Dino #XMPP

Converse.js 5.0.3 has been released which patches another vulnerability. Please update ASAP (Thanks and sorry for the quick succession of releases!)

An emoji picker is now reachable via a button located next to the message input field. GTK also offers the shortcut CTRL+. to open an emoji picker. #Dino #XMPP

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.
