  • OMEMO Specification Sprint

    The past weekend some members of the XMPP community gathered in Düsseldorf to work on the next iteration of the OMEMO Encryption Specification. All of us agree that the result – version 0.4 of XEP-0384 – is a huge step forward and better than ever!

    On Saturday morning we met up at the Chaosdorf, a local Hacker Space who’s members kindly hosted the sprint. Huge thanks to them for having us!

    Prior to the sprint we had collected a list of bullet points of topics we wanted to discuss. Among the more urging topics was proper specification of OMEMO for group chats, support for encrypting extension elements other than the body, as well as clarification on how to implement OMEMO without having to use libsignal. While the latter was technically already possible having a clear written documentation on how to do it is very important.

The Strangest Operating Systems Ever Released

Ninety-nine percent of computer users don’t give a single thought to their operating system. It comes with the machine, it gets updated automatically, and that’s all there is to it.
