  • vodozemac

    An implementation of Olm and Megolm in pure Rust.

    Would make more sense if it is reproducible builds. Shouldn't we just all switch to matrix clients which use Olm and Megolm cryptographic ratchets and it doesn't rely on one server/one entity.

    And looks like it is implemented in Rust:

  • murder

    Large scale server deploys using BitTorrent and the BitTornado library (by ervinb)

  • ringrtc

    They want to do this because they want more traction for their blockchain: TRON, which, IIRC, is the payment method for ads, usernames and "stuff" inside Telegram.

    However Du Rove is right about a bunch of things:

    - Signal clients suck, specially the Desktop one where they ship (or used to) pre-built binaries like their own lib: https://github.com/signalapp/ringrtc

  • TextSecure

    A private messenger for Android.

  • Signal-Desktop

    A private messenger for Windows, macOS, and Linux.

    >Given how the posted described the optional `--no-sandbox` flag as "no sandbox on Linux", it's clear that they don't understand anything they're sharing, and they just want to spread FUD.

    Could you elaborate as you seem to be more "knowledgeable". This flag is clear at what it does and shouldn't be shipped into production. https://no-sandbox.io/

    You can have a look where they specifically chose to force it https://github.com/signalapp/Signal-Desktop/commit/1ca0d8210...

  • tdesktop

    Telegram Desktop messaging app

    I don't see how I can start an E2EE chat from my PC. If a feature only ever exists on phone it does not exist.
