Prosody 0.10.3 released

by The Prosody Team
Tags: release , security

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.

Note that there will not be an updated ‘prosody’ package in our Debian/Ubuntu repository for this release, as that package is now tracking stable releases from our 0.11 branch. You may use the ‘prosody-0.10’ package which is automatically built from the 0.10 branch daily. The 0.10.3 release is equivalent to build 499. A signed tarball of this release is of course available at the usual place.
