The blabber.im #XMPP server shuts down tomorrow.

Although we're now in the final hours, I've been working all week towards something to help. I've put up an initial version of a web-based XMPP account migrator at https://migrate.modernxmpp.org/

It's rushed and still a bit rough round the edges right now, but I really hope it is useful to people who still have data and contacts to migrate before blabber.im goes offline.

If you use it, let me know how it goes! 🙂
#XMPP
 
@imageschaden @kolossus
Ich auch nicht. ;-) Bei #XMPP ist es da schon etwas einfacher.

Bei XMPP braucht man weder E-Mail / Telefonnummer noch ein Smartphone. Man ist unabhängig, da man Anbieter und Client frei wählen kann. Es handelt sich bei den meisten Server / Client Anwendungen um Freie Software. Das Protokoll ist ein offener Standard.

Fazit: Ich bevorzuge zum chatten XMPP.
 
Ah, danke @nuron!

Das ist fantastisch. Mit #Gajim ist es noch einfacher (hat nur mehrere Anläufe gebraucht, die Funktion dort zu finden 😉).

1️⃣ Altes und neues #XMPP-Konto in Gajim einrichten.
2️⃣ Im Kontomanager neues Konto auswählen.
3️⃣ Dann → Allgemein → Kontake importieren und #Blabber-Konto auswählen.
4️⃣ Fertig! 🙆

Der #XMPP-Anbieter #Blabber stellt den Dienst ein. 😓 Aber mit etwas #Shell-Magie geht der Umzug fix, https://github.com/catap/jabber-migrate hilft dabei.

1️⃣ Kontakte exportieren: `bin/roster-migrate -j name@blabber.im -w export -f kontakte.csv`
2️⃣ Neuen Server wählen, z.B. https://compliance.conversations.im
3️⃣ Kontakte importieren: `bin/roster-migrate -j name@neuer.server -w import --sendSubscriptionRequest -f kontakte.csv`
4️⃣ Fertig! 🙆

Hi alle,

hier die (inoffizielle) Information, dass der #blabber #xmpp Server in Kürze abgeschaltet wird. Siehe https://blabber.im/

- ein Umzug des Servers ist ausgeschlossen.
- Bitte migriert alle eure Konten und Kontakte zu anderen Servern.
Eine Liste von Servern findet ihr bspw hier: https://www.freie-messenger.de/sys_xmpp/server/

Wichtig: Die App blabber.im (ehemals Pix-Art) ist nicht betroffen!

Bitte teilen, da es scheinbar leider keine Servernachricht gegeben hat/geben wird!

:BoostOK:
 
Hey guys,

here is the (unofficial) information that the #blabber #xmpp server will be shut down soon.
It is anounced on https://blabber.im/

- a relocation of the server is impossible.
- Please migrate all your accounts and contacts to other servers.
You can find a list of servers e.g. here: https://www.freie-messenger.de/sys_xmpp/server/

Important: The app blabber.im (formerly Pix-Art) is not affected!

Please share, because it seems there was/will be no server message!

You'd like to use a modern chat application, while being under the full protection #Tails has to offer? (amnesia, anonymous, censorship resistant, encryption)

You might enjoy @dino then, one of Tails candidates to replace pidgin.
No phone number, anonymous, censorship resistant, e2e encrypted, decentralized/federated, easy to use, based on #xmpp.

With Tails "additional software" function you don't need to wait. Here's how to install it yourselve:
https://gitlab.tails.boum.org/tails/tails/-/issues/18235
 
@Sofie ja ist für übliche Nutzer am einfachsten und sicherste, klar finde ich #Matrix & #XMPP cooler aber damit kommen viele nicht klar und sind instand überfordert da /dev/brain angesprochen & aktiviert werden muss.
 
Video calls in Dino are slowly coming together. We are already making successful OMEMO encrypted video calls! The feature is included in our nightly builds now, but there's still further work to be done. #dino #xmpp

Beyond Chat – multimediale Räume mit Matrix


This time, we will have two talks!

First, a short howto style about Client Certificate Authentication mit XMPP (XEP-0178) and a longer one Beyond Chat – multimediale Räume mit Matrix with time for discussion.

Probably both talks will be held in de_DE.

When? Wednesday, 2021-04-14 18:00 CEST (always 2ⁿᵈ Wednesday of every month)

Where? Online, via our MUC (xmpp:berlin-meetup@conference.conversations.im?join). A Jitsi video conference will be announced there.

See you then!

Join us tomorrow (Tuesday, 13th April) at 16:00 UTC for a round table discussion about the features, changes, additions deletions, and policies we'd like to see in a hypothetical future "XMPP 2.0". More info at https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/XMPP_Office_Hours #XMPP

A couple of months ago I wrote a post about #Signal's user-first approach being part of the inspiration for @snikket_im

I praised Signal for this focus, but cautioned about their centralization of infrastructure and governance.

I didn't expect it to become relevant quite so soon 😞

This week confirmed that 1) Signal does not develop their code in the open 2) they are integrating in-app payments via a new privately-held cryptocurrency that the founder is involved with.

Bei WhatsApp vs. #XMPP ist es halt ähnlich: die Nutzer erwarten, dass ein Programm wie Conversations, Siskin oder Dino *genauso* wie WhatsApp funktioniert. Das ist Äpfel mit Birnen vergleichen oder zu erwarten, dass ein Elektromobil genauso zu nutzen sei wie ein Auto mit Verbrennermotor. Oder dass ein Sportwagen genauso viel transportieren kann, wie ein LKW.

Nicht das Programm ist fehlerhaft, sondern der Anspruch der Nutzer daran ist falsch.
#XMPP
 
Congrats to the launch! And I see you already on the-federation.info!

Now only #XMPP is missing... ;-)

@z428 the #matrix project being a #NGO has resion not to build the bridge, but more power to build it if they are pushed to do so. The #xmpp folks being a disorganisation have less power to build the bridge but more resion to do so. Neather wont to do it and feed off the current mess in diffrent unhealthy ways. thus both are acturly feeding off the dieing #openweb looked at it this way the need for change becomes more obvuse and active carrot and stick work importent.
 
@Hamishcampbell ... here while #xmpp seems to live centered around an organisation "just" focussed on standardisation of a protocol, not building an end-user solution.
 
@Hamishcampbell What if for a moment we gave up on blaming each other and started accepting that #matrix started rather late, tried to learn from past experiences and tried to fix some things #xmpp folks weren't able to address for roughly two decades, for whichever reasons? I see stubbornness on both sides as a main cause for this messy situation. 😑
 
@Hamishcampbell The very moment the both communities manage to provide a seamless, first-class, stable integration of #Matrix and #XMPP without finger-pointing each other for the responsibility to do that, the very moment it doesn't matter anymore which of these networks you initially signed up to, we could see a huge leap forward for open decentralized messaging.
 
A bridge for #matrix to #XMPP this is the most important "political" bridge they could build and support so not to look like a #meto #NGO project. Look at what groups do, not what they say.

#openweb #4opens
 
@gnulinux

Erster Gedanke: Ein sehr *sehr* weirdes Feature, das man eigentlich unter gar keinen Umständen will.

Zweiter Gedanke: Doch, genau Funktionen wie diese braucht es, um Leute leicht von Tools wie WhatsApp wegzubekommen - alles, was den Weg aus dem Silo ohne Kommunikations- und Kontaktverlust erleichtert, ist gut. Sowas in #Matrix oder #XMPP wäre sehr spannend... 🙂
 
Speziell für @Timo, vielleicht entscheidest Du Dich ja Doch noch für die Helle Seite der Macht.

Instant Messaging: It's not about the app - #XMPP provides sovereignty of your communication

Snikket is a new XMPP/Jabber-based decentralised FOSS messenger service. You can follow at:

➡️ @snikket_im

The official website is https://snikket.org

It aims to make XMPP into a more viable alternative to Whatsapp etc by providing consistency in design and terminology.

(It's sort of how Mastodon made ActivityPub more mainstream, by using consistency to make it clear the instances are part of one network.)

@strypey Well, personally I these days tend to recommend #Threema and hope for #Jami and #Briar in the long run. #XMPP and mail are open, but both technologies unfortunately are disastrous talking about server-sided metadata. In general, I see trustworthy servers for "the masses" to be the biggest issue here.

@mdhughes @clacke @fediverseparty @weltsnake
 
As this is still around, I remember I did write about some of my (personal, professional) experiences with #xmpp in https://dm.zimmer428.net/2017/01/xmpp-nice-but/ and https://dm.zimmer428.net/2018/03/phasing-out-xmpp/ . Both articles are a bit older already, but ... they sum up the issues that drove me off #xmpp back then, and many of them (clients, server interoperability, handling of non-text content across clients, ...) still seem there. And I didn't even have the server-sided security issues (https://infosec-handbook.eu/blog/xmpp-aitm/) in mind back then.
