Google moving away from the open APK format to a proprietary Android app format locked to Google Play. Yet another way to preference their own store and stifle competition.

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

@benk I'm afraid several philosophers are involved in the creation of Delta Chat - usually we manage to keep them away from this account, but sometimes... don't worry, it won't affect the app's quality.

@yisraeldov
Here is more information about email compability: delta.chat/en/2021-05-05-email

We try to keep backwards compability with Android 4 as long as possible.

deltachat, rant 

@emacsen thanks for the feedback! We are aware of this and are actively working on improving the situation: github.com/deltachat/deltachat

Maybe contribute here?

@yala @peter Schleuder isn't yet supported, I think - there is more to be done for that.

@kirill Sounds good to me - but maybe more opinions on that make sense? We discuss new features on support.delta.chat, maybe take the question there?

We officially deny that Delta Chat is related to the even if we are often internally using "Delta" to refer to Delta Chat -- and our apps are a variant mutation of regular e-mail and messaging apps :)

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 :)

We are following Adams ZeroTier work for a longer while already ... and his "decentralization: i want to believe" article from 2014 is still an excellent read today.

One of ZeroTier's differentiating features vs. other mesh VPN or zero-trust networking type things is that it's engineered to be "as decentralized as possible." Principle is "minimal trust centralization." Some background reasoning is explained here: adamierymenko.com/decentraliza twitter.com/davidnburgess/stat

The easiest thing is always seems to be to add another feature. But each feature interacts with other features, often increasing complexity exponentially, not linearly.

There are now Delta Chat desktop release candidates for the 1.20 "e-mail app improvements" release series --- let us know of any issues -- for many it works nicely already ... support.delta.chat/t/help-test

Show thread

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 ;)

After persevering through some 100 "e-mail compatibility" issues the new 1.20 release series is rolling ... with support for html-mail, mailing lists and alias-forwarded e-mails ... delta.chat/en/2021-05-05-email -- maybe try using Delta as your e-mail app and let us know how it goes?

Delta Chat impressions 

Wow! @delta is amazing on IOS. No more wondering if so and so has a chat app. They can just email and I send an IM message. This is perfect! Plus, the IOS app works beautifully with VoiceOver get.delta.chat/ #Accessibility

Delta Chat boosted

I noticed just today that @delta supports video calls via Jitsi.

What an elegant piece of software design (on top of messy protocols, no less.)
