We’re excited to announce the release of Zulip Server 1.6.0, containing hundreds of new features and bug fixes.
Zulip is the world’s most productive group chat software. Zulip combines the immediacy of chat with the asynchronous efficiency of email, and is 100% free and open source software.
This is Zulip’s largest release yet, with over 3100 new commits since February’s 1.5.0. More than 150 people (!!!) contributed commits to this release, bringing the Zulip server to 307 distinct code contributors. In 2017, Zulip has had, by a wide margin, the most active open-source development community of any group chat software.
Huge thanks to everyone who’s contributed to Zulip over the last few months, whether by writing code and docs, reporting issues, testing changes, translating, posting feedback on chat.zulip.org, or just suggesting ideas!
Describing all the improvements in a Zulip release has been an impossible task for our last few releases, and
