Introducing Matrix 1.0 and the Foundation

The Matrix project announced Matrix 1.0 and the launch of the Matrix Foundation. I thought folks would be interested in following this news:

Here is a brief excerpt from

The Matrix team has announced the first stable release of the Matrix protocol and specification across all APIs. The Synapse 1.0 reference implementation, which implements the full Matrix 1.0 API surface, has also been released. “Now, before you get too excited, it’s critical to understand that Matrix 1.0 is all about providing a stable, self-consistent, self-contained and secure version of the standard which anyone should be able to use to independently implement production-grade Matrix clients, servers, bots and bridges etc. It does not mean that all planned or possible features in Matrix are now specified and implemented, but that the most important core of the protocol is a well-defined stable platform for everyone to build on. On the Synapse side, our focus has been exclusively on ensuring that Synapse correctly implements Matrix 1.0, to provide a stable and secure basis for participating in Matrix without risk of room corruption or other nastinesses.” The announcement also covers the launch of the Foundation.

I’m really excited about this. I really like the Matrix project and hoping it’ll become more ubiquitous.

I’m super late to this post, but as a relatively new user to Matrix, I’ve been pleasantly surprised. I use the Riot client, and now use Matrix for all my IRC communications. The mobile app is pretty great as well.

I’m really looking forward to what Matrix does in the future, and may possibly look into a self-hosted instance in the near future ^.^
