It's happening! Matrix London Meetup is about to start, join the livestream at

This Week In Matrix is here! Featuring #gsoc news, Matrix Live with KB1RD on matrix-notepad, Synapse 1.11 and upcoming major perf fixes, free Radicals, Dad Bots and SO MUCH MORE!

It's official - is fully live on Matrix! Helping get Mozilla going has been a lot of fun, and we'll see a lot of improvements to Riot's UX in the coming months based on their feedback (turns out they know quite a lot about FOSS usability :D)

Yay! We've been accepted into Google Summer of Code as an organisation again this year - calling all students: if you have a free summer and want to help build Matrix get thinking of proposals! #gsoc #gsoc2020

#FOSDEM happened! We just published a quick wrap-up of the conference and videos of all the talks :D Thanks once again to everyone who came to our talks and spoke to us :)

Happy palindrome day!
