Tigase XMPP Server 8.0.0-RC1 - first Release Candidate
First Release Candidate of next major version of Tigase XMPP Server 8.0.0 has been released - and it’s packed with features and improvements.
Version 8 packs following goodies for users:
Share files with ease
Thanks to implementation of XEP-0363 HTTP File Upload it’s easier to exchange photos & videos, documentes and more.
Never miss-out on expressing yourself
Messages stored in the MySQL repository (message archive, groupchat) correctly handle emojis now (Tigase XMPP Server supported and handled exchanged messages with emoji for a long time without problems)
Never skip a beat
No matter what kind of internet connection you have, thanks to implementation of XEP-0357: Push Notifications you will never miss a message (you should use compatible XMPP Client, we recommend Tigase iOS Messenger and Tigase Android Messenger) and support for XEP-305 Quickstart will allow you to send messages faster than ever.
Seamlessly switch between devices
With brand new implementation of XEP-0313 Message Archive Management (MAM) you can now easily switch devices without loosing flow of your conservation.
Don’t get distracted
Have you ever received unwanted message? After enabling Spam Protection in Tigase XMPP Server those will be a thing of the past!
Benefits for all administrators:
You can now better protect your installation by enabling protection against brute-force attacks and CAPTCHA system now available for in-band registration
By default all user passwords in repository are hashed giving your users even greater peace of mind.
We decided to introduce TDSL - our new configuration file format which makes configuring The Server a piece of cake - with well organised structure it’s easier to navigate through the file and support for variables gives you even more flexibility when configuring the service. There is also automatic type detection, so you don’t have to worry about specifying it correctly anymore.
Please note, that we also changed how you configure your domains/VHost - now you only specify single, main domain and you can manage the rest via web browser interface (see: here)
Migration from other servers
If you ever wanted to use Tigase XMPP Server but had already started using alternative solutions you have now possibility to migrate all data to Tigase - read more in Tigase Database Migrator documentation.
