2019 has been a tough but great year. We’re now in 2020, although we can’t quite celebrate a decade of XMPP.is, we will in 2025. I’d like to say thank you to all of you wonderful and supportive users for a great year. This server has been around for almost 5 years now and won’t be going away anytime soon. A lot of improvements were made in 2019, which can all be seen in the posts here on this site and in the GitHub repo.
I reached my donation goal of $256 (surpassed it actually at $265). This doesn’t even include the cryptocurrency donations I’ve received either! Thanks to all who donated! It means a lot to receive such awesome support. I’ve updated the donation goal for 2020 and set the same goal of $256 USD.
I run this project for fun, but it’s also something I’ve taken more seriously over the years. The fact is, XMPP.is is in use by activists around the world along with people who just want to communicate securely and privately with their friends and family. It has become important for many individuals and I intend to continue supporting it for as long as possible.
Happy New Year everyone!
