Monal free download for Mac

Monal4.8

21 December 2020

XMPP chat client.

Overview

There has never been a better time to get into XMPP, a free public chat network no one controls or owns. Monal is a fast and user friendly way to use XMPP. Just download the app, login or register and you are ready to chat in minutes. It looks and works the way other apps do, so there is no need to "learn XMPP" or even care what it is.

Notable features:
  • Open Source
  • No Ads! Strong focus on privacy. Does not phone home and does not have "metrics" software beyond anonymous crash reporting (crashlytics). Does not read any personal information.
  • With a direct connection to your server, your password and all other info is never sent to a third party.
  • OMEMO encrypted chat
  • Will work with corporate XMPP servers that require VPN
  • MUC multi user chat
  • Standard XMPP Jingle VOIP

What's new in Monal

Version 4.8:
  • There are improvements to message archive management (MAM) which should allow you to scroll through your entire history. In addition, we have added a button in chat to scroll to the newest message. There are also translations for many new languages

Hi, where to download older versions for Sierras or Mohave ? The version available on App Store runs under Catalina only.

Haven't downloaded or used this app. Just wondering how it gets a 5-Star rating on here (MacUpdate), requires downloading from the Apple/Mac App Store and the rating on the App Store is 1-Star?? Just how does that happen....people not rating it on the App Store or is the rating here (MacUpdate) inflated to boost download and use of the app?? And the only rating here is to inform folks that version 2.3 has been released...twice by the same user/person??....and that warrants a 5-Star rating?? Hmmm?!?!
