Awesome. Thanks for sharing. It wasn’t apparent on their main site and DDG searches turned up irrelevant results, but good to know and worth testing.

Upgraded your account. Please edit and make these real links.

I could not find a way to edit the post. Here is the post again but reformated with proper links.

First Beta Release of Briar GTK

September 10, 2020

“Almost half a year after releasing the first alpha release of Briar GTK, today marks the day of its first beta release.”

“Beside being fully translated to German and Spanish and allowing to delete contacts, this beta release of Briar GTK also offers basic notification support.”

“Note that Briar GTK currently only supports private chats.”

“Updating to the new version is as easy as calling flatpak update or installing the new .deb files. If you’re new to Briar GTK, you might want to look at its installation instructions to learn how to install it.”

Beta blog post:
