Open source Slack-alternative offers 700 integrations with Markdown support (Mattermost 3.4)
Twitter, Gmail, GitHub, Jira, BitBucket and over 700 public cloud apps can now connect to Mattermost, with full Markdown support, using Zapier. Custom notifications, simplified bot and 3rd party authentication via OAuth2 are also included in the latest release. Plus, enjoy new and updated community integrations with Heroku, Gitter, Pivotal Tracker, Chef, Ansible, and Yunohost. Bonus: You can now automate installation of the Mattermost desktop app using Chocolatey.
This is Mattermost’s 12th consecutive release made on the 16th of the month. What a year’s it been! A big thank you to all of our contributors!
Staying up-to-date is critical in a busy workplace. Mattermost 3.4 sends you notifications at the right time in the right way, with more customization options than ever before:
Custom notification triggers – Set notifications on mentions of your name, username, keywords, replies on threaded messages, and group mentions like @channel.

Synchronized and compliant mobile notifications – Get push alerts on iOS and Android devices. Also, privacy-conscious teams can omit message contents, so confidential data never appears on the lock screen of a mobile phone.
Batched, offline email notifications – Set email alerts on mentions you missed while offline. Have them sent immediately, or in time-based batches.
Configurable desktop notifications – Configure desktop notifications by channel and activity, toggle sound, and even decide how long to display the message.

Reduce interruption – Set your status to away or offline when you want to see what’s going on, but don’t want to be reached. Special thanks to daizenberg for adding the slash command in this release.
Third-party authentication via OAuth
Securely integrate bots and 3rd party applications with Mattermost using the all new OAuth 2.0 provider.
Mattertee is a command line tool created by 42wim, which works like tee, a command line interpreter that reads standard input files and posts it to your Mattermost installation. The tool allows you to post the values to a specified channel or user with parameters such as:
Release candidates for the upgraded Windows, Mac and Linux desktop apps are now available, and the final version is releasing soon. The update improves keyboard shortcuts, notifications, the configuration settings page, and product documentation.
The Mattermost project is defined by the contributions of its community, and we’re incredibly grateful for the difference each of you has made.
