@Blort Android is the only client that's ready I think, but others are coming along. A/V works on the Android one, but I don't know the status of the other ones that are still in progress.

@Blort I was going to just recommend Snikket, but if you want a more general unbranded client look at Conversations on Android and Siskin on iOS (these are what the Snikket apps are based on, so they'll look familiar).

A couple of months ago I wrote a post about #Signal's user-first approach being part of the inspiration for @snikket_im

I praised Signal for this focus, but cautioned about their centralization of infrastructure and governance.

I didn't expect it to become relevant quite so soon 😞

This week confirmed that 1) Signal does not develop their code in the open 2) they are integrating in-app payments via a new privately-held cryptocurrency that the founder is involved with.

This (a thing we just made up), we have a good first issue that involves concurrency and a DoS! It will be a tiny patch, but will have a big impact to the project! mellium.im/xmpp/issue/124

@huy_ngo those are mathematical symbols that look like bold letters. It was part of a joke. You probably shouldn't actually do this anywhere.

Also, there's no reason the two can't co-exist! Message Styling deliberately doesn't tell you how to style things, just what directives should start styling! When the user types "*Strong Emphasis*" it's easy to convert that to "*𝐒𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐧𝐠 𝐄𝐦𝐩𝐡𝐚𝐬𝐢𝐬*" and just let Message Styling be the trigger!

While we disagree with its characterization of Message Styling (which is widely implemented, possibly more so than XHTML-IM ever was), we hereby announce our intent to implement XEP-0457: Message Fancying! Definitely real. Nothing to see here. xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0457.h
