Prosody 0.11.7 released

by The Prosody Team. Tags: release .

We are pleased to announce a new minor release from our stable branch. This is a security release for the 0.11.x stable branch. It is strongly recommended that all users upgrade to this release, especially those whose deployments have enabled mod_websocket. As well as upgrading, we recommend all public deployments to review and configure the c2s_stanza_size_limit and s2s_stanza_size_limit options to values they are comfortable with. The value is specified in bytes, and the XMPP specification requires values to be at least 10000 bytes, however it also recommends against just setting the limit to 10000 bytes.

We are pleased to announce a new minor release from our stable branch. This release brings a collection of fixes and improvements added since the 0.11.5 release improving security, performance, usability and interoperability. This version continues the deprecation of using prosodyctl to start/stop Prosody if it is installed system-wide. You should use your init system’s appropriate commands to manage the Prosody process instead. You can silence the warnings with the ‘prosodyctl_service_warnings’ option.

Prosody 0.11.3 released

by The Prosody Team. Tags: release .

We are pleased to announce a new minor release from our stable branch. This is a bugfix release for the stable 0.11 branch. It is recommended for all users of 0.11.x to upgrade. Important note for those upgrading: Previous releases did not automatically expire messages from group chat (MUC) archives, so if mod_muc_mam was loaded and enabled for a MUC, archives would grow indefinitely. This is not what most deployments want, therefore automatic expiry is now implemented and enabled with a default 7 day retention.

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.
