Yes! Another big move for Gitter! Gitter is being acquired by Element and will become part of the bigger Matrix ecosystem. Don’t worry, all of the Gitter things are staying around and we will continue to support your communities better than ever.
If you’re curious about what Element and Matrix is and the future of Gitter, the blog post over on Matrix.org explains it phenomenally!
You can try out Element and see what Matrix is about by chatting and asking questions over on #gitter:matrix.org - which is also bridged with https://gitter.im/matrix-org/gitter.
Thanks for keeping up with Gitter and reading about the rip-roaring times ahead!
– Eric, the Element team, and the whole Matrix community
