#nheko, the native #matrix client for GNU/Linux got a big update recently. It added support for voice and video. It also fixed encryption bugs and added device verification support.

I'm struggling to find an intuitive UX/UI to send (multiple) files and images from my messaging client.
I thought of having a bar like this, where files get added, and can be removed with the x.

Thoughts and boosts much appreciated

@z3ntu I recently started maintaining a fork of nheko:
I saw that you are the package maintainer for nheko on AUR. I wanted to reach out to get your thoughts on using the new repo instead of mujx's repo, as he no longer maintains the project.
