This Week in Ruma

From the editor

Work is underway to bring Ruma up to date with version r0.5.0 of the Matrix specification. Starting with the most foundational libraries and working up towards the higher-level ruma-client, this work should be done in the next week or two. The bulk of the work since the last update has been on ruma-events, adding all of the events that were previously missing, and doing a full pass through existing events to make sure our definitions match the specification.

In addition, community members Florian and Luca identified an issue regarding the use of Rust's u64 and i64 for numeric values and potential interoperability problems with JavaScript. After some discussion, Ruma team member jplatte created a new crate called js_int to address this. It has already been integrated with ruma-client-api and ruma-events, and will be used for all integer values in Ruma from now on.

Matrix at large

In the last post I mentioned that Matrix 1.0 was coming soon, and it has now happened! A hearty congratulations to everyone who works on Matrix! This is a huge milestone. You can read the details about Matrix 1.0, as well as the new Foundation, over on the Matrix blog: Introducing Matrix 1.0 and the Foundation.
