We also have Synapse v0.99.1.1 available, as the race to Synapse v1.0 gets closer and closer and closer!
Brendan also said, regarding low-bandwidth:
Some of the week has been spent finalising the components used in the low-bandwidth demo we did at FOSDEM. This required polishing some internal developments, which are now almost ready to be published to the wide world! This should happen in the next few days so stay tuned :)
Particularly exciting is the new encryption verification process, involving sharing a list of emojis out-of-band:
Scheduling, holidaying and illness means no update from Riot Android this week.
- Last iteration on key backup UX
- Finish reskin
- Support Room v3 events ids
- Key import (manual or backup restore) has been optimised. It is now 30x > quicker
- An RC candidate will be available over the weekend
As if this wasn't enough! python-olm is a library providing Python bindings for Olm (enabling E2E encryption for Matrix.)
boring refactoring stuff :-( at the moment to prepare everything for e2e encryption work. . .which seems to me not boring at all - we can expect, in the next few months, another Matrix Client with E2EE support, and on mobile!
In my role as editor of this particular blog post, I enjoy certain luxuries that others might envy. For example, today, I tried a new preview build of FluffyChat. This I installed on my barely-repaired OnePlus One running Ubuntu Touch 16.04.

Gridepo, as a Matrix Homeserver, is gaining basic support for Matrix Client API. We have basic login, room creation, message sending and sync working! A little screen recording of the progress can be viewed here for live action with Riot. As a reminder, Gridepo is a clean rewrite of mxhsd.
This is not usable yet outside of a dev environment but we should have a first usable version with federation in a couple of weeks!
