Movim migrates its official server to ejabberd

Movim is a distributed social networking platform founded in 2010. It can be accessed using existing XMPP clients and Jabber accounts, and is a free and open source software licensed under the AGPL.

With version 0.12 released in October, Movim migrated its official server to ejabberd. Before, they were using Metronome, a Prosody fork. Today, we are chatting with Timothée Jaussoin, the founder of Movim, about this very complex migration.
...
We now have a proper packaging for our Linux distribution – Debian, which certainly makes it easier to maintain. There’s also an improved scalability and more stable CPU and memory consumption, which helps to predict hardware requirements.
...
Even if I see ejabberd more as a tool that needs integration and tuning to create a proper platform, ejabberd seems to be the more serious solution to build proper messaging systems using the XMPP protocol.

Dino in Debian experimental



What is Dino?



Dino is a modern IM client using XMPP (Jabber) with support for both OpenPGP and OMEMO. It looks very nice and can already be used for chatting and group conversations. It is, however, not yet stable nor feature-complete. If you are looking for something like Conversations (Android XMPP client), but for the desktop, Dino is for you. If you like to have something more stable and feature-complete, try Gajim instead. I use both! :~)





Dino is written in C and Vala, uses the GTK+ UI toolkit and looks best in Gnome, XFCE, or other GTK+ based desktops. I heard about planned versions for Windows and MacOS, too, but don't hold your breath.

How to install Dino on Debian?



Since yesterday, the Dino IM client is available in the official Debian repositories, but so far only in the "experimental" distribution. To install it, Debian users have to:
$ echo deb https://deb.debian.org/debian/ experimental main | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/experimental.list
$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt -t experimental install dino-im


This should work on nine official and five unofficial architectures for at least unstable and testing. Not sure about stable. I'm pretty sure, that oldstable will not work.

Why the "-im" suffix for Dino in Debian?



There used to be another program, an "integrated MIDI piano roll editor and sequencer engine", by the same name in Debian. Many references to the old program still exist, so it would be problematic to recycle the name for a different purpose.

Happy chatting!

Prosody 0.10.0 now in Debian unstable



Users of Debian unstable can now apt install prosody prosody-modules to get the latest version. I run the packages (so far without issues) on a Debian stable system. The "clean" way would be to wait for a backport, but at the moment, it is not strictly necessary.

Improve #federation on #Diaspora with relay servers



It is not easy to enter federation with a small pod (with only few users), because your pod only receives posts from followed users and your post are sent only on pods where someone follows your pod users.

To improve exchange between your pod and others and I recommend to activate relay server in your config/diaspora.yml. It permits to receive posts from other pods even if you are not following any user on these pods (based on tags). It also publishes all your posts to the relay. To avoid to receive all posts, a good choice is to grab posts with pod user followed tags (see scope parameter).

Bigger pods are encouraged to publish their posts on relays to help small pods (outbound: send: true)

Just share this post with your #podmin to be sure #relay server is enabled on your #pod.

Here is a configuration sample extract from config/diaspora.yml :
<br> ## Settings related to relays<br> relay: ## Section<br> <br> ## Relays are applications that exist to push public posts around to<br> ## pods which want to subscribe to them but would not otherwise<br> ## receive them due to not having direct contact with the remote pods.<br> ##<br> ## See more regarding relays: https://wiki.diasporafoundation.org/Relay_servers_for_public_posts<br> <br> outbound: ## Section<br> ## Enable this setting to send out public posts from this pod to a relay<br> send: true<br> ## Change default remote relay url used for sending out here<br> url: 'https://relay.iliketoast.net/receive/public'<br> <br> inbound: ## Section<br> ## Enable this to receive public posts from relays<br> subscribe: true<br> <br> ## Scope is either 'all' or 'tags' (default).<br> ## - 'all', means this pod wants to receive all public posts from a relay<br> ## - 'tags', means this pod wants only posts tagged with certain tags<br> scope: tags<br> <br> ## If scope is 'tags', should we include tags that users on this pod follow?<br> ## These are added in addition to 'pod_tags', if set.<br> include_user_tags: true<br> <br> ## If scope is 'tags', a comma separated list of tags here can be set.<br> ## For example "linux,diaspora", to receive posts related to these tags<br> pod_tags: "diaspora, podmin"<br> <br>

Are decentralized services unable to innovate?



Talk by freelance journalist Hanno Böck (Golem, Süddeutsche, Zeit, taz) about the ongoing feature race between closed services, such as Signal, and federated ones, like XMPP.
While Signal technically is free software it doesn't feel like free software.

You can change it, but then you're no longer welcome in the Signal ecosystem and can't send messages to other Signal users.

Encrypted messengers: Why Riot (and not Signal) is the future

http://www.titus-stahl.de/blog/2016/12/21/encrypted-messengers-why-riot-and-not-signal-is-the-future/
But Riot has other advantages that make it, in some aspects, superior to Signal. Riot is based on the so-called Matrix protocol which is a federated protocol. That means that anyone who wants can run a Matrix server can do so and Riot users from all these servers can communicate with one another. There is no central instance that controls Matrix or Riot.

Decentralisation, federation and data export



In response to a recent announcement (https://diasp.eu/posts/4907563), when is full data export/import going to be possible? What is the priority level of this essential feature of de-centralisation?

I'm sorry to announce that, after 3 years of service, I will close ...

I'm sorry to announce that, after 3 years of service, I will close this Pod on the 23rd of December.
The reason is that I lost interest in maintaining the Pod, and since I will move my other services to a cheaper server I figured that this might be a good time to put an end to this.
Please download all your data prior to this date, so you can maybe transfer them to a new Pod in the future (given the Account Migration Feature ever gets implemented).
Thanks for the great time and see you somewhere else maybe :)

Poezio 0.10 released



This is another console based XMPP chat client, written in Python.

I'll stay with profanity for console jabbering for now, because it is already in Debian, while Poezio is being worked on. It is nice to have so many options for different needs and tastes with XMPP, while other IM systems do not offer anything for console users.

Resisting the centralization of network infrastructure



https://lwn.net/Articles/697398/ Keynote by Mr GnuPG Werner Koch at GUADEC 2016:
Today, the new attempt is Keybase.io, which many users like for its convenience (linking PGP keys to social media accounts). But it fundamentally violates the end-to-end privacy principle of PGP by binding keys to privacy-invading services. Periodically, he said, proposals pop up to implement "validating" PGP keyservers—but none of them work in a decentralized fashion. He urged users to stand up against all attempts to centralize PGP.

Finally, he looked at federation in general. Mail servers have more and more difficulty interoperating, he said, and XMPP has "lost its track" and is being replaced by centralized systems like WhatsApp and Signal. He encouraged developers to make federation a priority and to design for it from the beginning.

XMPP: Chat with a Future



https://netfuture.ch/2016/07/xmpp-chat-with-a-future/

Originally written as a response to a mail in which someone expressed their disappointment about the state of XMPP, Marcel Waldvogel, Professor of Computer and Information Science at University of Konstanz, wrote an enlightening article about extensibility, vendor-independence, and openness of XMPP, which he sees as both curse and blessing.

Do you trust it?



Got a software or service of dubious origin that you're not sure you can trust? Quick checklist:
