We are pleased to announce the release of Prosody 0.6.0!

This new release branch brings us another range of new features. Thanks
to a rather long testing phase a whole range of pesky bugs have also been

Prosody is a lightweight Jabber/XMPP server written in Lua. It aims
to be flexible, easy to extend, and simple to use for both users
and developers alike.

For a walkthrough of the new features in 0.6, see the blog post at

For the time-impaired, the following is a short summary of changes:

  * Console: Allow to add/remove hosts, reload config and shutdown
  * MUC: Allow multiple sessions of the same JID to use the same nick
  * MUC: Support for persistent rooms
  * MUC: Support for roles, affiliations, config and admin controls
  * mod_compression: zlib compression support for XMPP sessions
  * TLS for s2s connections
  * Per-host SSL/TLS certificates for vhosts
  * New importer for MySQL ejabberd dumps
  * Compatibility with vcard fetching from ejabberd chatrooms

Note also that the unexpectedly long release cycle of 0.6 means
that 0.7 is already not far off, so watch this space! :)
