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.Read more →
We have just added another target to our package builder, namely armhf packages sutable for Raspian on the Raspberry Pi. The first package available is trunk nightly 391. To try it, simply add our package repository to /etc/apt/sources.list: deb http://packages.prosody.im/debian wheezy main and then run sudo apt-get install prosody-trunkRead more →
For quite a while we have made it easy to get snapshots of the latest Prosody source, and also provided a 64-bit Debian package (prosody-dev) that tracks Prosody’s main development branch. We just completed the last pieces of a new system for building regular nightly builds for each of our active branches. Produced every day at 5AM UTC are builds of a source tarball and Debian/Ubuntu 32-bit and 64-bit packages.Read more →
Jochen Schalanda let us know that he has created Gentoo ebuilds of Prosody, both of 0.5.2 and the 0.6.0RC. These will make it even easier for Gentoo users to try out Prosody. You can find them attached to Gentoo Bug 290594. The packages need testers, so please give feedback at the link above if you try them, so that the Gentoo maintainers can verify the packages are ready for publication.Read more →
This evening I was notified that Prosody has been accepted into the Debian package repositories! Many, many thanks to Enrico Tassi and Sergei Golovan for their efforts helping to get my rough package into shape and meet the Debian standards, and to all those who helped with testing the package as it went on its way. This news means that in future a simple-to-use Jabber server will be easily accessible to anyone using Debian, Ubuntu, or any one of the many GNU/Linux distributions derived from them.Read more →
