Survey reminder and FOSDEM

by The Prosody Team.

This is a reminder that the 2019 community survey is still open, as announced earlier. We are always discovering new people and projects using Prosody that we were unaware of. We do not have any kind of tracking in Prosody, and it is impossible for us to know how many deployments there are worldwide. It is therefore easy for us to miss out on feedback from users who are not actively engaged in the project, but whose feedback is just as valuable to us.

Welcoming 2019

by The Prosody Team.

Happy New Year!

It is my firm belief that it is the community, and not the code, that makes an open-source project what it is. With that in mind, I’d like to thank you, the community around Prosody for making the project what it is. Whether you contribute code, help test nightly builds, develop packages, support others in our chatroom and mailing lists, or simply report bugs so that we can fix them - you have helped shape the project, and helped make the project better for everyone. For that - thank you!

As well as reflecting on what we have to be grateful for, there is no better time than the start of a new year to look at the past and what we have achieved, the present, and of course look forward to the future. First, let’s start with our achievements over the past 12 months.

Prosody 0.10.3 released

by The Prosody Team. Tags: release .

Three releases in less than a week! I think it’s a record. This one is a minor security and bugfix release from our 0.10.x branch, for users and packagers who are not quite ready to make the jump to 0.11 just yet. We will continue to maintain the 0.10 branch in this way with security and major bugfixes until further notice.

Lua 5.2-compatible package backports

by The Prosody Team.

After the release of 0.11.0 last week, it became apparent that a lot of people have been affected by some of our optional dependencies not being packaged for Lua 5.2 in most current Debian and Ubuntu versions.

We just published backports of the two most requested libraries, lua-dbi and lua-event, to our package repository.

PEP improvements in trunk

by The Prosody Team.

Our next trunk nightly release uses a new implementation of PEP (XEP-0163) by default. PEP is used for a number of things, primarily sharing with your contacts: Extended statuses (e.g. sharing the user’s current playing music, their mood, activity, etc.) Avatars OMEMO keys Chatroom bookmarks While PEP started out as a simplified form of ‘pubsub’ and a way to share information with your contacts, it quickly became clear that it was also a neat mechanism for sharing public info with non-contacts (such as OMEMO keys) or sharing private data (such as saved chatrooms) with other clients on your account.
