Today, the Riot Chat developers released 1.2.0 of their secure desktop communication client. So this evening I packaged it up as a snap to make it super easy to install. Enjoy :)

snap install riot-web

Why the *? Is Riot insecure? Or is matrix protocol flawed?

@petre @popey matrix had a problem with their gpg key a month or more ago, that compromised all the users of or something like that...

So a security issue with their server infrastructure (Jenkins) makes you cast doubt on the security of the client.... not nice of you.

Edit: missing word

@petre @popey you could use it if you wish, but it's not that secure as they sell it.. I prefer using xmpp with encryption rather that thing, but that is me. Other guys could have another line of thought
