The 2020 Matrix Holiday Special is here!! Looking back on 2020, looking forward to 2021 with some mad ranting about how amazing Spaces are going to be :D Thanks to all for using and supporting Matrix throughout this nightmare year - happy holidays!! 🎅🎄🎉https://matrix.org/blog/2020/12/25/the-matrix-holiday-special-2020
Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous #ReCaptcha into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.
More Xmas presents from KDE: Say hello to NeoChat, the new instant messaging app for the Matrix network. Find out how it works on mobile and desktops, learn about its cool features and how you can contribute to its success in the launch announcement.
Encryption only works in 1:1 chats, only using the Google Messages app, only for Beta users... Why bother using RCS at all, if the magic happens at the app layer? There are better protocols (cough @email@example.com cough) that aren't held back by MNO shackles! https://www.theverge.com/2020/11/19/21574451/android-rcs-encryption-message-end-to-end-beta
I set up a Conduit Matrix instance on a Raspberry Pi 3, feel free to try it out, homeserver url is pi.koesters.xyz:26453 (put that into https://app.element.io/ or another Matrix client)
Get it while it's fresh! This Week in Matrix is out now! Big Conduit news, lots of server updates, plus bridges, Gitter, loads of clients, and a new social network being built on matrix! #decentralisation #twim #matrix https://matrix.org/blog/2020/10/30/this-week-in-matrix-2020-10-30
After a rather twisty journey we are overexcited to declare that Dendrite (the next-gen Golang homeserver from the core Matrix team) has officially entered beta!! 🎉 Don't trust it with your data yet, but please spin up an instance & help us hunt the bugs! https://matrix.org/blog/2020/10/08/dendrite-is-entering-beta
Exciting news: Gitter is joining @firstname.lastname@example.org and entering the @email@example.com community! 🚀
Looking forward to bridging with the wider decentralised Matrix network & bringing Matrix magic to Gitter like E2EE, VoIP, and the Matrix API!

The unrealized potential of federation
The last few weeks we made some groundbreaking progress on #conduit - this is not a joke, we found a bug in Synapse while breaking multiple Matrix rooms, causing the Matrix team a lot of unnecessary stress. The good news is that Conduit is starting to federate now! This means that you should be able to join all public rooms of the Matrix network and exchange messages.
This Week in Matrix is available now! Find out what Linköping University are doing with Matrix, plus news on various servers, clients, a new sticker-picker, brand NEW cli tool and more #matrix #decentralisation #twim pic unrelated https://matrix.org/blog/2020/09/11/this-week-in-matrix-2020-09-11
