> Recent changes include....
> Enhanced virtual hosting
> Virtual hosting applies to many more setting options and
> features and is transparent. Virtual hosting accepts different
> parameters for different virtual hosts regarding the following
> features: authentication method, access control lists and access
> rules, users management, statistics, and shared roster. The web
> interface gives access to each virtual host's parameters.
> Enhanced Publish-Subscribe module
> ejabberd's Publish-Subscribe module integrates enhancements
> coming from J-EAI, an XMPP-based integration server built on
> ejabberd. ejabberd thus supports Publish-Subscribe node
> configuration. It is possible to define nodes that should be
> persistent, and the number of items to persist. Besides that, it
> is also possible to define various notification parameters, such
> as the delivery of the payload with the notifications, and the
> notification of subscribers when some changes occur on items.
> Other examples are: the maximum size of the items payload, the
> subscription approvers, the limitation of the notification to
> online users only, etc.
> Code reorganisation and update
> - The mod_register module has been cleaned up.
> - ODBC support has been updated and several bugs have been fixed.
> Development API
> To ease the work of Jabber/XMPP developers, a filter_packet hook
> has been added. As a result it is possible to develop plugins to
> filter or modify packets flowing through ejabberd.
> - Translations have been updated to support the new Publish-Subscribe
> - A new Brazilian Portuguese translation has been contributed.
> Web interface
> - The CSS stylesheet from the web interface is W3C compliant.
> Installers are provided for Microsoft Windows and Linux/x86. The
> Linux installer includes Erlang ASN.1 modules for LDAP
> authentication support.
> - This release contains several bugfixes and architectural
> changes. Among other bugfixes include improvements in LDAP
> authentication. Please refer to the ChangeLog file supplied
> with this release regarding all improvements in ejabberd.
