We are pleased to announce the release of Prosody 0.6.2.

This release fixes a bucketful of issues, some big, some small. The
most notable changes include:

  * Disable SSLv2 by default, as it is insecure
  * Fix a bug that could cause invalid XML to be sent to clients
  * In some cases data sent immediately before socket close could be lost
  * c2s/s2s require_encryption options now do what they say on the tin
  * Improved detection of already-running Prosody instances
  * Fixed a small memory leak in HTTP/BOSH
  * Ensure that the namespace on sent s2s stanzas is always jabber:server
  * Fix to correct the algorithm used in selecting SRV targets from DNS

In addition we have slightly reorganized the default configuration file
in an attempt to make first-time configuration easier, based on feedback
received from users. All existing configuration files work with *no*
changes required.

Thanks to everyone who has helped find and report bugs, and help test the
fixes for this release. We couldn't have done it without you :)

Happy Jabbering,
The Prosody Team
