I've been a daily user of Matrix for the last few years, and I run my
own Matrix server. I really like it - it solves a lot of the issues I
have with XMPP. Notably, server-side history is treated as a
first-class citizen, and it even works with end-to-end encrypted
rooms! (The clients hold the keys, the server holds the encrypted
messages.)

End-to-end encryption is still a bit spotty (and therefore still
disabled by default) but aside from a few corner cases it usually
works pretty well. They're working on it.

Also looks like someone has already made a libtech Matrix room, by the
way: https://matrix.to/#/#liberationtech:matrix.org
