Hi folks,

This release contains important fixes for two security issues recently
discovered in Prosody. It also contains various other fixes and
improvements we have made since 0.9.8. We strongly recommend that you
upgrade your server as soon as possible.

Another important note is that for a number of reasons we have dropped
Windows support with this release. If you are affected by this, please
contact us directly via email at developers at prosody.im.
