We're back home from TechCrunch where we had a great time arguing the pros and cons of Matrix versus XMPP with anyone and everyone - thanks to all who came to talk to us!
Meanwhile, Synapse v0.2.3 was released yesterday: the emphasis this week has been on improving stability issues on the server, and lots of cosmetic and functionality fixes on the webclient.
If you're running a homeserver, please upgrade asap - upgrading has never been easier - assuming you've checked out the master branch, simply:
git pull ./synctl restart
...and you will be up and running on 0.2.3. We keep the master branch tracking the latest release. http://matrix.org/alpha is already on the latest release should you wish to experiment first!
Alternatively, if you're installing from scratch, try:
git clone https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse.git python setup.py develop --user ./synctl start # to generate a default config ./synctl start # to actually set it running
and then head over to http://localhost:8008 to play with your very own Matrix homeserver!
