Small promo I made for . See you at the stand! (And watch the last second of the video before criticizing it ;p)

A patch release is out fixing issues with uploading animated emoji/stickers, pre-filling file names, and some markdown issues.

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. 👨‍💻

Conferences using Matrix, conferences about Matrix, in-app notifications, or even an auto-responder bot? That, and much more happened this week in Matrix!

Okay, step 1, tags:

Step 2:

NEW NHEKO OUT THE DOOR, GRAB IT WHILE IT IS HOT! No, wait, don't, you would burn yourself! But try it out once the release has cooled off a bit and tell me if you like it!

It includes moderation improvements, better notifications, faster startup, encryption improvements and way to integrate with KRunner, rofi and much more! Also lots of bugfixes and other features!


Did you know, that matrix HQ has just ~180 members if you stop parsing at the first redaction? (Fixed now)

Doing notification counts for spaces in efficiently was a fun experience to implement.

(Don't worry, I fixed it shortly after, just thought this was hilarious.)

I wanna see how far this poll can go, vote and then boost please! 🌐

How long have you been in the fediverse?

Comment if timeframe is not listed!

☺️: "Kannst du die Bilder von der Hochzeit direkt in meine Nextcloud hochladen? Ich schick dir einen Upload-Link."
😭: "Das ist so komplizierter Nerd-kram. Warum hast du nicht einfach eine Dropbox?"

Ich erstelle einen Ordner namens Dropbox in meiner Nextcloud und erstelle der Person einen Upload-Link. Reaktion:

🥳: "Ja! Genau so! Das ist doch viel einfacher!"

Is this more or less confusing than how you have seen it elsewhere? I think it helps a bit, since I never knew which one of the lists to use in Element, but on the other hand it gives you a free text field to enter aliases without telling you clearly, what you can't put there?

Editing room aliases in :

Aliases are one of the more confusing parts in imo. You have both the option to only advertise them in your room as well as publish them in your servers directory. I tried to combine those aspects in Nheko: You add an alias and can then choose to advertise it in the room or publicly. They are red if they can't be used by people to join the room. Star marks the primary alias. And yes, advertising == store icon, room directory == big building. I like puns.

This is the kind of thing I worry about when it comes to our modern technology. BMW charging a monthly fee to use a feature in the car you've "purchased". doesn't need to do anything to make this work. You already have everything you need to have the feature. It's just you need to be paying the fee for BMW to LET you use a feature in your own car. The subscription economy is out of hand.
