The list of solved tickets since the previous version is available on ProcessOne bug tracker: http://redir.process-one.net/ejabberd-2.1.9

If you upgrade from ejabberd 2.0.7 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.

The source package and binary installers for Linux 32 bits, 64 bits, Mac OS X Intel, and Windows are available in the ejabberd ProcessOne download page.

ejabberd 3.0.0-alpha-4

This alpha release contains all the changes from ejabberd 2.1.x branch, many other ejabberd 3 specific changes, and a few improvements like:

  • Option static_modules fully working
  • Update http_bind to XEP-0124 1.10 and XEP-0206 1.3
  • Replaced the full ejabberd_zlib into a simple exmpp_compress interface

The related tickets can be found on the bug tracker.

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.
