XMPP4R 0.3 Released !

July 20th, 2006 by lucas

Stephan Maka announced that XMPP4R 0.3, the new version of the XMPP/Jabber library for Ruby, was released very early this morning. From the announcement :

XMPP4R is a Ruby library for the Jabber/XMPP instant messaging protocol.

Version 0.3 brings a lot of new features and fixes. The release has been
delayed by a redesign process, thus the class and module names of
additional features have changed. Updaters are advised to read the
included UPDATING document.

From the ChangeLog:

* SRV lookup capability in Client#connect
* Stringprep support for JIDs
* TLS & SASL support
* Basic Dataforms support
* Multi-User Chat Helpers
* Helpers for File-Transfer, SOCKS5 Bytestreams, In-Band Bytestreams
* Roster helper has modified subscription-request semantics (see
Roster#add_subscription_request_callback)
* A lot of features have renamed namespaces (see UPDATING file)

Pointers for further information:

* XMPP4R Homepage: http://home.gna.org/xmpp4r/
* Downloads: http://download.gna.org/xmpp4r/
* API reference: http://home.gna.org/xmpp4r/rdoc/

While I worked on version 0.2, I didn’t do anything for this version, and I’m very proud of that, because it’s actually the first time that I was able to hand over all the maintainership of a project I created ;) Stephan Maka really did a Great Job. Congratulations, Stephan !
