The homeservers are back up 🎉

It seems like they are missing some pictures right now, I guess those will come back later.

Make sure you change your password (and NickServ passwords) and happy chatting!

See you around 👋

Matrix is coming back up! One of the first things happening was writing a new blog post about the incident which you can find here:

matrix.org/blog/2019/04/11/sec

TL;DR: Some outdated software was discovered and cracked by an attack which then had access to various data points.

Important: Change your password ASAP (including NickServ when you used the IRC bridges)

Hint: The homeserver is not back up yet.

F-Droid will soon have stricter requirements for apps showing up in the "Latest" tab in the F-Droid app:

news.f-droid.org/posts/2019-03

If you are an app developer consider adding good descriptions, screenshots and a "Whats's New" section for your app.

If you notice that your favourite app doesn't fulfill all these requirements consider notifying the app's developers or just help them with a merge request adding the missing info to the source repo.
