This ‘happy new year’ release of ejabberd is the culmination of one year of major improvements. This is yet another milestone for ejabberd, being the starting point of a new phase of cleanup and optimisations for your favourite server.
This release contains security fix for possible server spoofing with brute force attack on the random number generation. Even if the issue is difficult to exploit, it is recommended to upgrade your server if you’re using server-to-server (s2s) connections.
It also includes:
– better groupchat archiving support with MAM
– improved PubSub performances and control
– more shaper capabilities for listeners
– performance optimisation and lower memory consumption of the core XML processing modules
– faster core routines
