Recent changes include....
Enhanced virtual hosting
Virtual hosting applies to many more setting options and
features and is transparent. Virtual hosting accepts different
parameters for different virtual hosts regarding the following
features: authentication method, access control lists and access
rules, users management, statistics, and shared roster. The web
interface gives access to each virtual host's parameters.
Enhanced Publish-Subscribe module
ejabberd's Publish-Subscribe module integrates enhancements
coming from J-EAI, an XMPP-based integration server built on
ejabberd. ejabberd thus supports Publish-Subscribe node
configuration. It is possible to define nodes that should be
persistent, and the number of items to persist. Besides that, it
is also possible to define various notification parameters, such
as the delivery of the payload with the notifications, and the
notification of subscribers when some changes occur on items.
Other examples are: the maximum size of the items payload, the
subscription approvers, the limitation of the notification to
online users only, etc.
Code reorganisation and update
- The mod_register module has been cleaned up.
- ODBC support has been updated and several bugs have been fixed.
To ease the work of Jabber/XMPP developers, a filter_packet hook
has been added. As a result it is possible to develop plugins to
filter or modify packets flowing through ejabberd.
- Translations have been updated to support the new Publish-Subscribe
- A new Brazilian Portuguese translation has been contributed.
- The CSS stylesheet from the web interface is W3C compliant.
Installers are provided for Microsoft Windows and Linux/x86. The
Linux installer includes Erlang ASN.1 modules for LDAP
- This release contains several bugfixes and architectural
changes. Among other bugfixes include improvements in LDAP
authentication. Please refer to the ChangeLog file supplied
with this release regarding all improvements in ejabberd.
