Salut à Toi version 0.7.0 beta 1 has been released. In other words, we are starting the beta phase, the feature are frozen (beside small adjustments) and now we will concentrate on stability, debugging and usability.
As a reminder, "Salut à Toi" is a libre, decentralised, and ethical communication ecosystem. It offers numerous functionalities (instant messaging, end-to-end encryption, blogging, file sharing, events, forums, etc.) and works natively on desktop, mobile devices (Android), on the web, and as well without graphic interface (text interface and command line).
It has been a relief to move over this stage after enourmous amount of work since the last version (0.6.1), released more than 2 and half years ago!
If you know Python, I am looking for people who could help me to make the project installable on Windows, Mac OS and *BSD. I am also working on a flatpak package. It would be good to have he web frontend on Yunohost, there again help would be much appreciated (cf. work already started).
Please note that SàT is already available on Debian and probably its derivated (however, beta is not there yet), as well as on Arch Linux (you'll have to use the
sat-*-hg packages to test the beta).
The installation instructions are available in the documentation, and I'm working on a new website, which would be more reading friendly, and should be on-line this week.
Here are the links for installation files, and you'll find most of them on Pypy (please note that you'll have to go through "release history" to get beta version)):
SàT backend: https://ftp.goffi.org/sat/sat.tar.bz2
It includes the Primitivus (TUI) and jp (CLI) frontends

I'm concluding with a screenshot of the Android version of Cagou, and note that this blog is also made with this project:
