October update

Published on October 5, 2018 by Andre Staltz

It's been just one week since the app was launched, and I'm overwhelmed with the massive positive reception, specially from you backers! You're a small group of 14 persons, but I want to dedicate this monthly newsletter to thank you, and share updates and status on the project.

Here are some key events that happened recently:

  • New versions released that fix several glitches and bugs, see the Changelog
  • F-Droid deployment was submitted and merged, now we're just pending on F-Droid's build servers to release it
  • In a new blog post, I explain how to get connected with other people in the app
  • My talk at Full Stack Fest about Scuttlebutt, Manyverse, and our tech stack is now published

All that in just 8 days. I'm also curious about your feedback. I have heard a lot of people requesting uploading profile pictures, so I think I'll make that a priority above other issues. The app has no analytics nor telemetry, so I don't have insight into its usage unless you tell me. So feel free to make this a conversation (for instance as a GitLab issue) about the future of the app. Note also that it's entirely open source, so forks are encouraged too. :)

These handwritten email updates will come once per month, so see you next month!
