    XMPP at the IETF

    pubsub.slavino.sk / prosodyblog · Wednesday, 4 November - 06:05

We recently helped deploy a new XMPP service for the IETF. But before we go any further, some of you are probably asking - “what is the IETF?!” If you’ve been around the XMPP community for a while, or if you’ve been at all involved in internet development discussions, you’ll already have an idea of what the IETF is. But that leaves many people don’t know, so here goes…

    Prosody 0.11.7 released

    pubsub.slavino.sk / prosodyblog · Thursday, 1 October - 15:09

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.

    Simple Anti-Spam Tips

    pubsub.slavino.sk / prosodyblog · Tuesday, 22 September - 09:30

You can take it as a sign of success of a network when it becomes worthwhile for spammers to set up camp. If you’re an active user of XMPP, there is a chance you’ve been unfortunate enough to receive spam in recent weeks. Spam has always been an occasional issue on the network, as with any network, website or internet service. However a few years ago spammers really started to take things more seriously on XMPP.

    Great Invitations

    pubsub.slavino.sk / prosodyblog · Sunday, 13 September - 17:08

There are two kinds of servers on the XMPP network today: those with public registration, and those without. The servers that support registration generally allow you to create accounts via the web, or using your XMPP client (XEP-0077). The problem is that this opens your server up to the world. Even when you add CAPTCHAs and other defences, even the most careful XMPP public server admin will at some point see spammers registering accounts on their server.

    Prosody 0.11.6 released

    pubsub.slavino.sk / prosodyblog · Wednesday, 9 September - 13:46

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.

    Introducing Snikket

    pubsub.slavino.sk / prosodyblog · Tuesday, 4 February, 2020 - 13:05

Reviewing the past decade A little over 11 years ago, a group of us started the project that would snowball to become Prosody. There were a number of reasons for embarking on this new project, but one of our primary objectives was to make running your own server much easier than it was back then in 2008. Looking back, I think we’ve made significant progress. Not only in Prosody, but across the XMPP ecosystem there has been a renewed focus on improving the user experience of projects.
