Kaidan 0.7 is here❗
- improved usability for sending files
- more information about your chat partner

as well as a couple of bug fixes. You can see the full changelog here: https://www.kaidan.im/2021/02/02/kaidan-0.7.0/
We have just published a bunch of new translation strings for the upcoming release. If you feel like it, you are welcome to help with the translation! See you on #weblate.
Kaidan, KDE's instant messaging app for Jabber, gets financial support from the NLnet Foundation to implement end-to-end encryption.
@joshim Does the A record of your server match the IP of the xmpp SRV record? And is it running on 5222?
I think QXmpp/Qt has problems resolving SRV records on android, so it falls back to A/AAAA records.
About encryption: Kaidan forces the connection to the XMPP server to be TLS encrypted (with a valid certificate). Full end-to-end-encryption (using OMEMO) is being worked on.
Privacy-policy is an important point and we'd appreciate help here from anyone. :)
@silkevicious Ideally we would need 5.15. Maybe ubports directly goes to 5.15 (also LTS). 5.12 currently works, but at some point we will need 5.15.
Let's see and hope the best. :)
@povoq The current work-in-progress MIX implementation is currently developed using Tigase Server. However, also Tigase Server is still missing some features we need.
However, basic MIX support should arrive still this year.
@silkevicious Good to know! We will certainly come back to you if there's a new build to test. I just had a look at our current clickable manifest, and there is a chance that it could still work. Probably it will still take some time until Qt 5.12 is available in the development container, right?
@silkevicious Right now Kirigami and Kaidan depend on Qt 5.12, which should work again on Ubuntu Touch after the next OTA. However realistically we'd need someone who uses Ubuntu Touch regularly and has some development experience on the platform. Our Clickable setup is probably not compatible with current Clickable versions anymore.
@povoq There is already work on a MIX implementation going on, but it is still work in progress. I was told a few things already work with some servers though.
@LPS It is! You can always find our current milestones on https://invent.kde.org/network/kaidan/-/milestones btw.
Kaidan 0.6.0 has been released!
Including an offline message queue, advanced message corrections and many stability fixes.
@Muto Flutter seems like a useful Qt-alternative on Smartphones, but it currently appears to be lacking a lot of integration on the desktop, and doesn't seem to go into that direction. I think I can speak for most of our contributors when saying that we prefer not to depend on Google for Kaidan. Apart from that, most of us really like C++ and QML, and think that they are a better match for our convergence needs.
QXmpp 1.3.0 was released!
It complys with the XMPP Compliance Suites 2020 for IM and Advanced Mobile now!
Kaidan is a simple, user-friendly Jabber/XMPP client providing a modern user-interface.
