I’m Patiga, a computer science student from Germany and a new contributor to Dino. The yearly Google Summer of Code has started, and I’m glad to be part of it. This time, you can look forward to a modernized file transfer called “Stateless File Sharing”.

End users can look forward to blurred previews of large images and other metadata alongside file transfers. You might already know this from other messengers, now it’s coming to Dino/XMPP.

There are some more technicalities, which we will dive into deeper in upcoming blog posts. If you want to have a peek at some technical information already, see the relevant XEP-0447.
