Prosody 0.9.2 released

by The Prosody Team. Tags: release .

We are pleased to announce Prosody 0.9.2, the latest release of our stable 0.9 branch. The main focus of this release is on a couple of security improvements. A summary of changes in this release: Debian/Ubuntu packages fixed to always generate per-system certs (see below) TLS: Improved cipher string, and use Prosody’s preferred ciphers (see below) MUC: Fix for Spark clients not displaying room lists Packaged certificates It has always been our policy that Prosody should be secure out of the box, which is why we generate self-signed certificates for “localhost” at installation time, making it easy to get a simple XMPP server up and running in a couple of minutes.
