    * Support gen_tcp send timeout to close the connection if the
destination has disconnected ungracefully or cannot keep up with the
rate at which we are sending data.
    * Pubsub node names are used verbatim, without separating by
slash, unless a node plugin uses its own separator.
    * Many miscellaneous fixes and improvements in PubSub, PEP and Caps.
    * New general option max_fsm_queue.
    * New option backlog for ejabberd_listener to increase TCP backlog.
    * New mod_pubsub option max_items_node.
