Hi all,

We just pushed our first major update since matrix.org launched for Synapse, the reference Matrix homeserver:

Changes in synapse 0.2.2 (2014-09-06)


  • Fix desktop notifications
  • Add support for captchas on registration
  • Handle m.room.aliases events.
  • Implement local echo when sending message
  • Inform the UI when a message failed to send.
  • Only autoscroll on receiving a new message if the user was already at the bottom of the screen.
  • Add support for ban/kick reasons.
  • Add /join support for IRC acolytes
  • Make IRC-style commands a little more forgiving


  • Validate m.room.power_level events.
  • When the server returns state events it now also includes the previous content if any to aid pagination
  • Add support for inviting people when creating a new room.
  • Make the homeserver inform the room via m.room.aliases when a new alias is added for a room.

The matrix.org homeserver & webclient has already been updated to the latest version - if you're running your own homeserver, please update. v0.2.2 retains backwards compatibility with previous homeserver releases.
