Pre-disclosure: we are planning a coordinated security release of multiple Matrix clients starting 16:00 UTC Wed Sep 28th to address some critical issues. We have no evidence of these being exploited in the wild, but please get ready to upgrade on Wed!

Our Matrix server recipe now supports bridging with Telegram, Discord and Signal! If you're looking to bridge online community chats, drop in to our Matrix channels to get some help setting things up. We have at least one fellow-hoster using and maintaining the bridges so far... see the configs on

DeepBlue V7.X mastodon (AP)
I totally forgot, we released #nheko 0.10.1!

This release brings improvements to stability and performance.

Sorry, I couldn't resist. As a #matrix client starting with N, this had to come at some point. More seriously, we fixed a few crashes and also made it possible to create and manage your communities!

Give it a try:

Available for Linux, Windows, macOS, *BSD, Haiku, as Flatpak or traditional package, for small touch devices and desktop!

There's been a HUGE amount of progress in Matrix since the start of 2022, so here's a Special Edition Summer Gala update featuring Sliding Sync, Faster Joins, matrix-rust-sdk, Scalable VoIP, Third Room and more. Is that Matrix 2.0 on the horizon?! 🏝🌞🏄🚀

PGPainless? Is directly using GnuPG painful?
vanitasvitae mastodon (AP)
GnuPG has some difficult facets, yes. But PGPainless' primary goal is to improve the library ecosystem for Java, and pgpainless-cli is a neat by-product :)

I'm looking for #Matrix community volunteers to help me organise a stand and DevRoom at #FrOSCon.

For the stand we want a small group to explain Matrix to others. For the DevRoom we want some talks and workshops. Anyone's welcome to ask me for more info or to get involved.

Tonight, I started preparing and updating my talks for the upcoming conferences. 👨‍💻

It are diagrams like this that confuse users and cause them to make (fatal) mistakes...

You have a responsibility when writing about security stuff!

A (faulty) diagram reading
"How does GPG work for encryption?"

User A uses their *private key* to encrypt the plaintext and user B uses A's public key to decrypt it.

At most this scheme applies to signing data, but only if you squint hard enough...

I was involved in an #XMPP OMEMO sprint this weekend with devs from Dino, Conversations and Gajim.

We decided to focus on modifying the various libsignal libraries used by the clients to make them compatible with the latest OMEMO version (which AFAIK no client yet fully supports).

I forked libsignal-protocol-javascript into libomemo.js

A lot of time was spent updating ancient dependencies and getting tests to run. I then started making changes for OMEMO compat.

First-ever Gitea comment on an issue from a remote instance!!! 🎉

There is usually quite a bit of similarity between words in the Romance languages. However, there's one exception that I've noticed: "butterfly" is very different in at least the four most common romance languages: es: mariposa, pt: borboleta, fr: papillon, it: farfalla Linguists of ActivityPub, can anyone explain the divergence for that word?
DeepBlue V7.X mastodon (AP)
No idea about Romance languages, but the German word for butterfly is one of my favourites: Schmetterling

That basically translates to "Smashling", i.e. a cute form of someone who smashes stuff. It kinda makes sense, but also explains why German is such a beautiful language.

Please boost for reach. So, anyone that is working on FOSS projects like web apps, sites, Linux apps, desktop environments, or other user interfaces, please let me know if you want them tested for accessibility. I can do both CLI, web, and GUI testing, and app testing on Android. I'm running Debian (on a ChromeBook but that's not too important), so just give me the name of the package, or the URL of the site or app. I can also do Flatpak!

On the plus side, it's taken less than 40 hours for the progress bar to make it past the half-way mark. On the minus side, the progress bar hasn't moved for the last little while, and is no longer giving a time estimate.
Finally installed. Why is macOS so hard to use? I prefer being able to just "apt install gcc".

OK, I got the strangest spam message today. It was someone asking if I performed liposuction, and claiming to want to book a consultation for their mother. I don't really understand what their scam is. Are they actually hoping to get responses from people who do perform liposuction? I can't imagine that they'd get very many responses, as a percentage of the number of messages they send out. But I guess sending spam is cheap. Or are they hoping to verify active email addresses from people responding and saying that they don't perform liposuction? It just seems like a really strange spam message to send.

Election day in Ontario today. Unfortunately, it looks like we're going to be stuck with the same government, or even a slightly worse version (stronger majority).

If you hear that encryption should be undermined, remember these two facts of the pro encryption side:

✅ 1. Encryption can't be outlawed

✅ 2. Backdoors for the good guys only are impossible

A few days ago, @kev asked the community for help maintaining his side-project, This got me thinking.

There are loads of maintainers out there feeling burnt out, but they can't abandon their project since people are depending on the project to be maintained.

In an effort to combat this, I built a website that lists projects looking for new maintainers. It's still quite empty and has some rough edges, so any feedback is very welcome.
