What an incredible month! Mattermost 2.1 is now available for download.

Note: Mattermost 2.1 contains a security update. It’s highly recommended that earlier deployments upgrade.

Windows, Linux and Mac desktop applications

After discussion with the leading community projects developing desktop applications for Mattermost, electron-mattermost by Yuya Ochiai was selected as the new official version.

Users can download an use binaries for running native desktop applications on Windows (32-bit and 64-bit), Linux (32-bit and 64-bit) and Mac. The applications will continue to be improved under a beta tag and switch to final release versions after they’re integrated with the Mattermost build system with code signing.

Huge thanks to Yuya Ochiai for being the maintainer of the official desktop applications, and huge thanks also to all the other community members who have been worked on other desktop projects. We hope you’ll consider bringing your creativity and talent to the new official Mattermost desktop and help us realize its full potential.

Brazilian Portuguese

After English and Spanish, our third language for Mattermost is Brazilian Portuguese. Huge thanks to the efforts of Rodrigo.

In December, Mattermost was designed for the 335 million native English speakers in the world. In February, with the addition of Spanish translation, we were able to reach an additional 414 million people who are native Spanish speakers. In March, we now add 200 million speakers of Brazilian Portuguese. It’s a pretty good start.

Japanese deployment guides

An increasing number of guides on Mattermost deployment, webhooks, Hubot, Docker and other topics are being produced on Qiita, a Japanese community site. If anyone is interested in working on a Japanese translation, or other language translations, please join in the discussion.

Jira, Email, CLI, and Winston integrations

We greatly appreciate all the community applications being developed. We haven’t had time to list them all here by the release of 2.1, but we’ll add more retroactively. If you’ve created a Mattermost application or installer, please let us know about it so we can share it with the community.
