#DeltaChat, a #messenger like #WhatsApp but #decentralized on top of #email, released version 0.301.1 in #fdroid,
now with a new experimental location streaming feature, a cool dark mode, and a lot of other improvements like app performance and handling of webp files (stickers), and new translations to #Japanese and #Brazilian #Portuguese, bug fixes, etc

https://f-droid.org/en/packages/com.b44t.messenger/

I use Delta and I like it, but one major drawback is that it requires IMAP support, which a lot of webmail providers don't offer :(

it is an email client, all email clients need support for IMAP or the now obsolete POP3, I think most decent email providers will offer at least IMAP access, if they want you to only access them using a webmail, well you just have to use Delta Chat with a provider that allow to use an email client, check out: https://support.delta.chat/t/provider-overview/ for a list of some providers you can pick,
and if you want to test the app, you can chat with me at adbenitez@nauta.cu

Has this matured in the past year or two? I tried it a while back and it seriously messed up my inbox.

I like the idea of using existing (email) protocols – and tbh many of my emails are more or less IM length, anyway – but delta fell short on execution last I checked.

For suere, it is really much better now

I'll give it another try some time. What are best practices to separate chat threads out from "regular" email? I could set up a dedicated delta email account, but I'd think my main email address would be a unique identifier for others to "find" me.

if you start the talk from #deltachat messages will be moved to the DeltaChat folder, otherwise it will be kept in your INBOX because you may want so, Delta Chat is in beta state so things are constantly changing and improving, so please stay tuned! :)




 
#COI - #Chat Over #IMAP - is a universal chat protocol that is #Free, #Open, Easy, #Safe and does not require #developers to build or maintain a server.
COI uses an #email address and any IMAP server as its infrastructure. This means it can already connect 3.8 billion users - anyone with an email address.

Privacy is not a science, it is a human right

https://ar.al/2019/02/14/privacy-is-not-a-science-it-is-a-human-right/

My response to a dangerous turd of an article by Bart van der Sloot (co-founder of Amsterdam Privacy Week – sponsored by Palantir and Google – and docent teaching “Privacy and Big Data” at Tilburg University)

Mr. Sloot attempts to reframe privacy as a “science” and shame those who work to protect it for having a “pro-privacy agenda” & not being “neutral”. He also calls for “new rules” to disallow such biased behaviour.




 
I just want to thank all of the creators and maintainers of free software that I can use for free! I appreciate your hard work!

Instagram ranked worst for young people’s mental health [0].

I am very aware of the toxic side of IG and look forward to establishing Pixelfed Labs [1]. The goal is to get the community involved in solving these tough issues through discussions, proposals and implementations.

We can build better alternatives if we work together!

First it was #librem5 that would bring us #gnulinux #mobile. Then we get news of #pinephone and now Im reading how some finnish company #necunos is also bringing their own device running #kdeplasma.

Is this a dream? Am I awake? Future is amazing.



 
@polyplacophora @farlopito @fdroidorg Hi! Thank you for supporting us with a paid account. It means a lot. The process of publishing our app on F-droid has already started. We need to make a few steps before doing this. In the next couple of months it should be done. Your patience is greatly appreciated.



 
I have just switched from #Chromium to #Waterfox browser. The reason is that #Google is actively preventing users from installing some extensions such as #AdNauseam. AdNauseam is an ad blocker that additionally silently clicks the ads that it blocks, devaluing the analytics ( #surveilance ) data. Google of course profits from ads and doesn't want this to be happening, so this is exactly what we need to do. So please consider installing AdNauseam.



 
#OpenMW, a #FOSS rewrite of the #Morrowind engine, officially announces it will be merging the #TES3MP project -- a multiplayer fork of OpenMW.

announcement

I used to contribute to OpenMW in the past, and got to try the multiplayer in early stages -- big fun even back then. We need a free content for OpenMW in order to create a full #libregame equivalent for Morrowind.
