Microsoft promotet gerade seine MS Authenticator-App. Ich sage: Finger weg! Die App verstößt nicht nur gegen die DSGVO, sondern bindet in ein sicherheitskritisches Anwendungsszenario auch noch sechs Tracker ein.
"I sent you an OMEMO encrypted message but your client doesn’t seem to support that."
We just published a new #Prosody module, mod_debug_omemo. It adds a unique link to the end of these messages. When opened, it will reveal OMEMO debug info that can help identify why the message couldn't be decrypted.
Thanks to @zash for some last-minute testing and fixes 🙂

🎉 Our iOS app is finally public! 🎉
This is a huge milestone for the project, and proof of what we can accomplish when a community comes together around a purpose.
The app link will automatically appear in the next Snikket server update (along with some other app-related fixes), but the post has manual instructions for admins who just can't wait 🙂

The blabber.im #XMPP server shuts down tomorrow.
Although we're now in the final hours, I've been working all week towards something to help. I've put up an initial version of a web-based XMPP account migrator at https://migrate.modernxmpp.org/
It's rushed and still a bit rough round the edges right now, but I really hope it is useful to people who still have data and contacts to migrate before blabber.im goes offline.
If you use it, let me know how it goes! 🙂
