0.4.0 Release Notes

Released 2009-04-01

We are pleased to announce the release of Prosody 0.4.0.

It's no joke. We have spent most effort this release improving Prosody internals, ensuring we have a solid base on which to build future features. Numerous bugs have been fixed and it is recommended that all users of 0.3.0 Release Notes upgrade.

That said, we do have a few new things in this release, namely roster versioning (allowing clients to cache the roster, instead of downloading it each time they connect) and support for external components, allowing the use of gateways/transports and other services.

Prosody is a lightweight Jabber/XMPP server written in Lua. It aims to be flexible, easy to extend, and simple to use for both users and developers alike.

The following is a summary of changes since the previous version:

We would appreciate feedback from those testing roster versioning - we are aware of no clients that support it currently, but hopefully that can soon change.

Testing external component support would greatly help too, there are many different components, and we have only tried a couple.

All the known issues listed in the previous release have been fixed.
