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.

Release blog post: dino.im/blog/2020/01/dino-0.1-

@dino In your blog post you mention how other messengers are easy to use and have thus been adopted by many people and that you're also going for easy-to-use... But you seem to have forgotten accessibility: Most users are on Windows and Mac, and installing Linux is not easy for most. 🤔 But other than that, I am excited for Dino! 🎉

It's not even about being easy to install. Most people never install Windows. And nobody will delete theirs and go for Linux just because of a messenger, no matter how good.

Of course there's a cumulative effect of having multiple nice things on Linux (I prefer it for anything except games!), but this still limits mass appeal, and this (current?) limitation should be mentioned early ... lest you get thousands of Windows users excited and then dissappointed in quick order.


oh ... ahh, that's what you meant. yeah, sure ... I, like, knew that of course!
