I've just released Converse.js version 6.0.0.

Release notes:
github.com/conversejs/converse

The biggest change is support for storing data (e.g. messages) in IndexedDB which has no size restrictions. It's not yet the default store, but will be eventually.

Another big change is support for XEP-0156 Alternative Connections. Now on inverse.chat you can connect directly to your #xmpp server without requiring a BOSH middleman.

Man könnte es sich nicht ausdenken ...

Diese beiden Plakate nebeneinander zu hängen ist auf so vielen (inhaltlichen und sprachlichen) Ebenen einfach absurd.

Moxie Marlinspike, the creator of Signal gave a talk at 36C3 on Saturday titled “The ecosystem is moving”. The Fahrplan description of that talk reads as follows: Considerations for distributed and decentralized technologies from the perspective of a product that many would like to see decentralize.Amongst an environment of enthusiasm for blockchain-based technologies, efforts to decentralize the internet, and tremendous investment in distributed systems, there has been relatively little product movement in this area from the mobile and consumer internet spaces.This is an exploration of challenges for distributed technologies, as well as some considerations for what they do and don’t provide, from the perspective of someone working on user-focused mobile communication. This also includes a look at how Signal addresses some of the same problems that decentralized and distributed technologies hope to solve.fahrplan.events.ccc.de/congres Basically the talk is a reiteration of some arguments from a blog post with the same title he posted back in 2016. In his presentation, Marlinspike basically states that federated systems have the issue of being frozen in time while centralized systems are flexible and easy to change. As an example, Marlinspike names HTTP/1.1, which was released in 1999 and on which we are stuck on ever since. While it is true, that a huge part of the internet is currently running on HTTP 1.0 and 1.1, one has to consider that its successor HTTP/2.0 was only released in 2015. 4 / 5 years are not a long time to update the entirety of the internet, especially if you consider the fact that the big browser vendors announced to only make their browsers work with HTTP/2.0 sites when they are TLS encrypted. Marlinspike then goes on listing 4 expectations that advocates of federated systems have, namely privacy, censorship resistance, availability and control. This is pretty accurate and matches my personal expectations pretty well. He then argues, that Signal as a centralized application can fulfill those expectations as well, if not better than a decentralized system. Privacy Privacy is often expected to be provided by the means of data ownership, says Marlinspike. As an example he mentions email. He argues that even though he is self-hosting his emails, “each and every mail has GMail at the other end”. I agree with this observation and think that this is a real problem. But the answer to this problem would logically be that we need to increase our efforts to… <a class="more-link" href="blog.jabberhead.tk/2019/12/29/">Continue reading <span class="screen-reader-text">Re: The Ecosystem is Moving</span> <span class="meta-nav" aria-hidden="true">→</span></a> blog.jabberhead.tk/2019/12/29/
