We are very pleased to announce the release of Prosody 0.8.0! Many thanks
to the many people who made this release possible.

Prosody is a flexible XMPP server designed to be easy to use and light
on resources.

This release contains a number of new features, at the core new APIs
for pluggable
authentication and storage. This has allowed us to develop a bunch of
new modules
for integrating Prosody with third-party systems such as directories
and databases.

A detailed review of the new features and documentation can be found in our blog
post at http://blog.prosody.im/prosody-0-8-0-released/

A summary of the new features in this release:

  * Support for authentication and storage plugins
  * Auth plugins: plain, hashed, Cyrus, anonymous, LDAP, external, YubiKey
  * An SQL storage plugin supporting MySQL, PostgreSQL and SQLite3
  * Ad-hoc commands support, to control Prosody from your XMPP client
  * Members-only, invite-only and password-protected multi-user conferences
  * A migrator to move data between different data stores (file<->SQL)

Feedback is always welcome, and you can give it or find Prosody support via any
of the means listed on http://prosody.im/discuss

We are already working away for 0.9, which will include pubsub, server-to-server
certificate authentication, IPv6 and more. Anyone wishing to help develop or
test these features is invited to join the discussion at the link above.

Happy Jabbering,
The Prosody Team
