We are pleased to announce the release of Prosody 0.5.1.

This is a small bugfix release for the stable 0.5 branch.

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.

The following is a summary of changes since the previous version:

   * mod_muc: Fix the sending of the subject on room join
   * posix: Lower the loglevel of error messages sent to syslog
   * Fix traceback when subscription request sent to a host
   * Improve handling/logging of SSL initialisation errors
   * prosodyctl: Drop group if started as root to fix file ownership
   * Fix that directed presence could be sent with no 'from'
   * Enable timestamps by default when logging to files
   * Warn when port configuration incorrectly under a virtual host
   * Send stream opening tag if needed when sending stream errors
   * PEP: Support for item retraction for some clients (eg. Psi)
   * Fix possible doubled iq error responses
   * Add the missing 'help' command to the telnet console :)

In other good news, Prosody is now a step closer to inclusion
in Debian - more on that soon :)
