Delta Chat is the only cross-platform messenger that does not collect data ... we know nothing about users' identities, no logins, no IP addresses, no e-mail addresses, no crypto-keys, no messaging patterns or contacts, no message contents etc. Simply Nada. Zilch. 0.

new major releases are rolling now with better handling of contact requests, concurrent multi-account support on all platforms and better connectivity/quota info ... and thanks to @NLnetFDN@twitter.com and @NGI_DAPSI@twitter.com for funding much of the improvements :) delta.chat/en/2021-08-24-updat

Always nice to see recommendations from interesting people/institutions we didn't even know about before :)

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.

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

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.)

We are coming out of pandemic retreats Real Soon Now (tm), bringing lots and lots of good release news ... meanwhile please all stay well and don't forget to retreat from all the digital things and enjoy the outsides :)

@weirdwriter I am working with the @delta team to make Delta more acessible, especially on the desktop. The iOS app is great, I don't know about the Android app since I don't use Android, but the desktop app has some challenges. If you look through recent issues there, you'll find mine.

We are living already in the future. Or which other projects have their production apps on all platforms based on @rustlang@twitter.com ? Likely, 2021is the year for us to reap and give back visible benefits. What many don't realize: Rust fundamentally eases *loose collaboration*.
