Hi everyone!

Welcome to the latest edition of your pseudo-monthly https://jmp.chat update!

In case it's been a while since you checked out JMP, here's a refresher: JMP 
lets you send and receive text and picture messages (and calls) through a 
real phone number right from your computer, tablet, phone, or anything else 
that has a Jabber client.  Among other things, JMP has these features: Your 
phone number on every device; Multiple phone numbers, one app; Free as in 
Freedom; Share one number with multiple people.

The JMP team is growing.  This month we added root, whom many of you will 
know from the chatroom.  root has been a valuable and helpful member of the 
community for quite some time, and we are pleased to add them to the team.  
They will be primarily helping with support and documentation, but also 
with, let's face it, everything else.

The account settings bot (https://jmp.chat/faq#bot) has a new command for 
listing recent financial transactions.  You can use this command to check on 
your auto top-ups, recent charges for phone calls, rewards for referrals, 
etc.  There is now also a command for changing your Jabber ID, so if you 
find yourself in a situation where you are changing for any reason you can 
do that yourself without waiting for support to do it manually.

This month also saw the release of Cheogram Android 2.10.5-2 
(https://git.singpolyma.net/cheogram-android/refs/2.10.5-2).  This version 
has numerous bug fixes for crashes and other edge cases and is based on the 
latest upstream code which includes a security fix, so be sure to update!  
Support for TOR and extended connection settings has also been fixed, a new 
darker theme added, and UI tweaks to recognize that messages are often 
encrypted with TLS.
