If you upgrade from ejabberd 2.0.5 or older, read carefully the
release notes of ejabberd 2.1.0 too, because there were several
changes in the installation path and the configuration options.

=== ejabberd 3.0.0-alpha-5 ===

some other ejabberd 3 specific changes, and a few improvements like:
- Only verify if passwd table is SCRAMmed when starting module

Please note that the database schema used in this preliminary release
is not yet definitive, and it will probably change in the next alpha
and beta releases.

When compiling the source code, it is necessary to install exmpp.

Recommendation: try this alpha release far away from a production
server. Try it with an empty database, or with a copy of your existing
database. Please report bugs you find, including logged errors if any,
in the usual https://support.process-one.net/browse/EJAB
or in the ejabberd mailing list.
