This feels like a bumper (extra big) post, so let's get straight into it!
Bruno has merged his work on lazy loading room members lists, which should mean we see some big performance improvements, especially in larger rooms. You can expect to see that released on /develop soon.
He has also just started to work on the riot redesign, and has begun on some of the more visible changes like resizeable panels:
More news on the redesign to come soon!
Seaglass is now a very usable and stable client on macOS. neilalexander has been very active this week:
Seaglass has had various updates, including the groundwork for joining and leaving channels, LOADS of crashes fixed, some more work done on avatars and E2E encryption has been fairly well road-tested now Still need to complete UI for device verification and setting E2E but it works fine in existing channels
Quaternion has gained a new way to highlight mentions - with tinted background instead of colored text. Also, the majority of work on rooms grouping is done, and the current master branch features the roomlist grouped by tag (but rooms under each tag are pretty much out of order so it's not really ready for daily use yet).Quaternion is looking for a macOS packager - if someone has the chance to help out in this area, speak to kitsune in #QMatrixClient.
A few days back Palaver has been moved to Gitlab. And I have since released v0.2.0 and v0.2.1. A runnable jar-file of the latest release can be downloaded at https://gitlab.com/MrCustomizer/palaver/tags/v0.2.1. The biggest changes in v0.2.x are the replacement of all the web views with native JavaFX components (as I don't feel comfortable embedding a whole browser stack in a desktop application) and support for read markers. There is a short YouTube video demonstrating the read marker implementation:
Matrique now has a (basic) room management panel, a working emoji picker, an unread marker and supports playing "m.audio". It should be available at Flathub any time.
Jeon (https://github.com/ma1uta/jeon) (client2server and application api) has released on the Maven Central Repository with version 0.4.1. The next goal: the stable release of all apis 1.0.0 after the Matrix spec will be released (I hope it will be soon :)) Jmsdk (https://github.com/ma1uta/jmsdk) the client and bot SDK have released on the Maven Central Repository. Gene (https://github.com/ma1uta/gene) the lightweight api for android has released on Maven Central Repository with 0.2.1 version. So, everyone can use this libraries without additional settings and additional repositories. Matrix-Jabber-Bridge (https://github.com/ma1uta/matrix-jabber-java-bridge) the double-pupped bridge between the Matrix and Jabber. I am still working on it and I think it will be released in a few weeks.
mautrix-appservice-go is a bit more active again: it now has an initial intent API similar to the one in mautrix-appservice-python (which in turn is based on the intent API from matrix-appservice-bridge).
A utility for sending notifications, on demand and when commands finishbut in fact, you also send notifications whenever you like by calling
ntfy sendfrom anywhere you'd normally execute shell commands. This will make it really easy to integrate Matrix notifications into any other application!
matrix-docker-ansible-deploy got a lot of improvements lately:
the playbook can now also set up and configure Maximus's matrix-synapse-rest-auth
- email-sending support, so that Matrix Synapse can send email notifications (enabled by default)
- mxisd Identity Server support (enabled by default)
- more detailed docs split into various sections (used to be a single README, but with more and more features it was turning into a wall of text)
- started keeping a changelog, especially for backward-incompatible things

No major changes since the release candidates last week, except a Telethon update that might have fixed history backfill.
