#Matrix and #XMPP are two federated/decentralized instant messaging protocols. Both has its pros and cons. #Bifrost bridge is an effort to connect these two protocols. Currently the bridge does not support offline messages for XMPP users, making it unreliable for XMPP users.

The bridge being #FreeSoftware we want to fix this problem by adding support for offline messages to the bridge.
