SAN FRANCISCO, CA, UNITED STATES, November 21, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Zulip, the open source team collaboration tool with unique topic-based threading ideal for live and asynchronous conversations, today announced the release of Zulip Server 6.0, a major update that marks a release of the Zulip server and web applications. The release contains hundreds of new features and capabilities for the Fortune 500 companies, standards bodies, leading open-source projects, and thousands of organizations that use Zulip every day. Notable new features in Zulip Server 6.0 include marking messages as unread, read receipts, and new ways to navigate conversations. Zulip is available as a managed cloud service or a self-hosted solution.
The core of the Recurse Center is the community, and the core of our online community is Zulip… Switching to Zulip has turned out to be one of the best decisions we’ve made, and it’s impossible to imagine RC today without it. No other tool has a user experience that scales to a community of our size.
— Nick Bergson-Shilcock, founder and CEO, Recurse Center [customer story]
This release also includes hundreds of other improvements to the Zulip UI, both large and small.
“I am so excited about the changes this release brings to our users,” said Alya Abbott, Head of Product at Zulip. “Some of these new features, like emoji reactions with names, and the flexibility of marking messages as unread from any view, I have not seen in any other team chat product. I’m incredibly grateful not only to the 118 people who have contributed code since the 5.0 release, but also hundreds of others who have helped make Zulip better by reporting issues, translating, supporting us financially, or just having a conversation and sharing their experiences and ideas.”
Sponsorships. We proudly sponsor free Zulip Cloud Standard hosting for about 1000 open-source projects, non-profits, education, and academic research groups. All eligible organizations are encouraged to join the program!
This summer, Slack drastically changed its free plan, making it untenable for many organizations. We have been glad to be able to support many affected organizations by helping them import their Slack data into Zulip, and offering Zulip Cloud Standard sponsorships for open-source projects, research groups, and other negatively impacted communities.
Community and mentorship. Our community is fully committed to helping bring up the next generation of open-source contributors. 2022 was the 7th consecutive year that Zulip participated in Google Summer of Code. Our 15 GSoC 2022 participants contributed to many of the features described in this press release, and we’re looking forward to welcoming the next cohorts of GSoC and Outreachy participants.
