A little post on how the current Android/iOS releases incorporate network traffic reduction improvements delta.chat/en/2020-03-11-reduc… -- maybe not important for high-resourced always-online folks but definitely for people with limited data plans and bad networks.

Hi, I just came back to this toot to say that since it introduced me to deltachat I have been a happy user and have started working on some deltachat related projects in my favourite language: Go.
Both projects are work in progress but I figured that some people might be interested in them🤓
There's go bindings to the C FFI here:
And there's a WhatsApp bridge here:
Thanks for introducing me to DC @null0x0 !
Happy 8th birthday, @firstname.lastname@example.org, home of #LibreOffice! It's been an amazing ride, seeing your grow from infancy to full-blown,
Delta Chat does not have all "clean code" -- here is a good read by @email@example.com on the trappings of this ideal ... https://overreacted.io/goodbye-clean-code/
Abbiamo deciso di aggiungere @firstname.lastname@example.org nel nostro articolo sulle #alternative a #Whatsapp. Un client diverso dagli altri che trasforma le email in chat! Curiosa e interessante novità da tenere d'occhio! https://www.lealternative.net/2020/01/09/alternative-a-whatsapp#delta-chat #privacy #deleteFacebook #14febbraio #chat
The #cryptoleaks are very strong reason why true free software matters. It also displays a good level of absurdity to require certificates (like we did with ISO27000) and then go behind your back anyway. Security theater hurts everyone in the end.
I put a very small pull request in today for Delta Chat, a PGP-encrypted, self-hosted chat system (built atop email), which uses Autocrypt to help those less familiar with PGP.
A tiny, tiny patch, for a small UI issue, but still one of the joys of open source software.

Here is a Delta Chat talk from end December at #36c3 -- it discusses Delta Chat's unique messenger-approach, its use of the e-mail server network, its resilience against internet shutdowns, the crypto engine rPGP, and then tons of Q&A from the audience https://media.ccc.de/v/36c3-oio-154-delta-chat-e-mail-based-messaging-the-rustocalypse-and-ux-driven-approach-ybti-wefixthenet-session-#t=1169
As it is using email as a message container, Delta Chat is probably the most decentralized IM software. Plus it encrypts E2E, even for group conversations.
Instant Email Messaging. The largest decentralized messenger. Soon for iOS and Linux, too! Get it on F-Droid!
