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.

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
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.
Dino is a modern open-source chat client for the desktop. It focuses on providing a clean and reliable XMPP ("Jabber") experience while having your privacy in mind.
