Tigase is een opensource Jabber/xmpp-implementatie in Java waarmee je een omgeving aan kan bieden voor het uitwisselen van berichten tussen gebruikers. Daarnaast kan de software voor het verifiŽren van gebruikers gebruikmaken van een database van bijvoorbeeld Drupal. Voor meer informatie verwijzen we jullie door naar deze pagina in de beheerdershandleiding. De ontwikkelaars hebben onlangs Tigase Server 4.1.0 uitgebracht en voorzien van de volgende aankondiging:
Tigase XMPP/Jabber Server 4.1.0-b1315
A new version of the Tigase server has been just released. This is a major release which means there are not only bug fixes but also some new and interesting stuff added in this version. For anybody who looks at our website from time to time we have no surprises. New features included in this version are targeted for advanced users and large deployment. There are also number of bug fixes which improve functionality and reliability for all kinds of deployments.
New additions in this version are listed below:
The most important bug fixes and improvements are related to server to server communication.
- Virtual Hosts stored in the database (old - configuration based storage for VHosts is still supported). This is targeted for deployments wanting to offer thousands of virtual domains per installation with frequent changes in the virtual hosts list. We support adding, removing virtual hosts, temporary disabling them, setting limits in number of users, disabling registration of new users or you can set the domain as non-anonymous which disables anonymous users for this domain.
- Server monitoring - you can setup automatic monitors to track usage of different resources on your machine. How they are used by the Tigase server or what is their system wide usage. Alert notifications can be sent to a list of configured JIDs and it also allows for interactive work with monitors.
- Virtual components which allow to setup non-clustered components in cluster Tigase deployment.
There are 5 binary and source packages available for download so please pick one the most suitable for your system. If you run any GUI system on the machine where you want to install the Tigase server I suggest to pick the jar file and run it using: java -jar tigase-server-4.1.0-b1315.jar. It will help you installing all the server components and will lead you through the configuration process and database preparation.
Note! The new VHost implementation in the Tigase server makes it incompatible with the old XML configuration files. Please remove them and let the Tigase server to regenerate configuration from init.properties file. If you do the upgrade from the previous version - please backup
Please give it a try and let us know if you have any comments. We always look for suggestions how we can improve the Tigase server.
