A little tech preview for Delta Chat iOS to easily setup a second device, under the hood using the fast evolving Rust implementation of @IPFS@twitter.com github.com/n0-computer/iroh/ -- not the only use we are envisioning of this interesting P2P effort ;)

Some days ago we visited the fine folks behind mailcow.email and servercow.de -- while mailcow installations already work well with Delta Chat we want to increase speed of message delivery, spam processing and aim for easier onboarding with mailcow installs.

Coincidentally 640kb is the current size limit for webxdc.org chat-shareable web apps :)

RT @zagy@twitter.com

640K ought to be enough for anyone.

Download on Demand, faster and more convenient account switching, improved stickers, improved defense active active attacks and that's not even all :) The Android and iOS releases are rolling out to the stores and desktop also soon arrives. delta.chat/en/2021-11-17-relea

Some day we hope to use peermaps and/or the associated software stack to finally incorporated decentralized mapping into all Delta Chat apps ... keep up the good work, substack!

running the whole peermaps ingest with some improvements and tuning to minimize the transfer size for queries on the final result

This would actually be an amazingly effective way to teach people how computers work and what computer programming is.

In the last month "Android vitals" show that Delta Chat is pretty reliable and stable but we continue to work on improving reliability and speed :)

Both iOS and Desktop are nearing the major 1.20 "Delta Chat becomes a full-blown e-mail app" milestone ... curling it up-hill issue by issue like good old Sisyphos -- which you may imagine as a happy person ;)

The silence you are hearing here is because we are gathering to prepare for new releases and features on all platforms, tackling some long standing issuses and feature requests. And some of us are currently isolated far out and enjoying an in-person corona-respecting gathering :)

We are very happy that Marco is is helping us with accessibility issues lately.

Cuba just suffered widescale internet outages for a few hours (seems to come back now), and Facebook/WA and other services were unreachable. However, folks could continue to use Delta Chat -- we know from some of our user feedback chats. Resilience does matter.

RT @vinifortuna@twitter.com

Internet in is down, starting at 12:05pm Cuba time.

New Delta Chat Desktop version about to roll out ... completing our core50/1.14.X release series. We'll have "Swipe-to-Reply" and "Reply privately" is then on all platforms and well interacting with regular e-mail apps! Multi-device installs work quite well BUT ... 1/2

So super quick explainer for those just now tuning into the protests in Peru: this week Congress, in a surprise move, impeached the president, removing him. The new president took office with an approval rating of 25%, a party accused of mass corruption and a VERY angry public

Someone was just surprised about it so here is a public note: Delta Chat folks are on IRC -- freenode . Call us old-fashioned but it's consistent with our home page motto "Head back to the future with us" and also with the front logo for our Lab servers :)

A funny but typical test failure suddenly appearing on Halloween 2020 ... shared by the inventor of Delta Chat, @bj01n@twitter.com on IRC ... btw and did you hear that DC folks use IRC a lot and have some plans to weave it with DC, but using a different approach than Matrix?

Even though we were a bit silent here and on the blog -- $things are happening :) New Releases are currently working their way through user-testing and several new features and improvements are pre-developed for the release round after the next one already.

Delta Chat Core and Python bindings running on a Raspberry Pi 4, with 4 GB RAM, and passing all tests -- see github.com/deltachat/deltachat for the setup.
