After a long time, the #xmpp server #prosody released its next stable version 0.12. It was time well spend, there is a big leap in features, just to pick one, I want to highlight the invite system. Known from the sister project #snikket.org. Simple onboarding! https://blog.prosody.im/great-invitations/ But see for yourself all the other features that make it even easier then before to selfhost a good decentralized chat software, that is as extendable as the protocol itself. https://blog.prosody.im/prosody-0.12.0-released/
tl;dr: OpenSim is a 15-year-old, free-and-open-source Metaverse from before The Metaverse was cool. And it's the Mastodon to Second Life's Twitter.
Ab der FRITZ!OS -Version 7.39 wird nicht nur WireGuard unterstützt, sondern auch die "VPN-Benutzereinwahl von Android 12 über IPSec IKEv2".
It has been almost 5 months since I started running a Snikket server. I only had to update once and that was very easy. I faced no issues as of now on the server side. The uptime has been 100%.
This is a blog post I have written on my experience https://fsci.in/blog/snikket-experience/
I found @snikket_im project chatroom as very helping and welcoming. They try their best to help newbies in self-hosting, which usually takes a lot of patience.
Gajim 1.4.0 has been released 🚀
After more than a year of development, it’s finally time to announce the release of Gajim 1.4.0! 🎉
Gajim 1.4 series comes with a completely redesigned message window and conversation management. Workspaces allow you to organize your chats to keep matters separate where needed. These changes were only possible by touching a lot of Gajim’s code base, and we appreciate all the feedback we got from you.

🇩🇪 Gestern habe ich Klage gegen die #Chatkontrolle eingereicht. Ich sehe der Zerstörung des Grundrechts auf #digitalesBriefgeheimnis nicht zu, sondern schalte jetzt die Justiz ein.

So, apparently @peertube now has live chat built into it through a an official plugin (you can see a screenshot below).
The plugin has a github at https://github.com/JohnXLivingston/peertube-plugin-livechat
It was announced on the PeerTube blog back in November at https://joinpeertube.org/news#live-plugin-app
The chat doesn't require an account, you just pick a nickname and start chatting.
A few years ago I made this flow chart of which Mastodon posts end up in which timelines!
So, you can see how each instance will have a different local timeline, and even a slightly different federated timeline - and you can see why the federated timeline moves so much faster than the local one, too.
This is why it's important to boost good posts and use hashtags - the fediverse is fragmented and harder to search by nature.
Are you looking for people to follow on Mastodon and the Fediverse?

(If a category has several pages of follows, click "show older" at the bottom to see the next page.)
This is just a tiny fraction of accounts on here, but hopefully it will give people's timelines a good start.
Please do share this with anyone you think might benefit, for example people who are new here.

All friendly creatures are welcome. Be excellent to each other, sei humanistisch, keine Nazis, keine Hassrede. Nicht nur für Nerds, aber die Domain ist irgendwie cool. ;) Keine Bots im Allgemeinen erlaubt! (nur mit vorheriger Genehmigung).
