Migration on the new server

If you can see this message it means that DNS change has been populated and you access Tigase service on the new server.

The old machine was quite underpowered and couldn't cope with the traffic and all services running on tigase.org. The new server with Core2Quad CPU, 4GB RAM and 500GB HDD in RAID1 mirror should be enough for our needs.

If you see something not working correctly or some unexpected behavior please let me know.

The old machine is still alive with all services working on it so some people may still connect to the old server while some other for who DNS changes was updated earlier may connect to the new server. I am going to shutdown the old machine within a few days.

FOSDEM 2008 - the first day

The first day of FOSDEM 2008 is over.

This year Jabber/XMPP presence was very insignificant on the conference. Just both, not room, no talks or presentations. There was however a Jabber/XMPP booth. I met a few new people from the Jabber/XMPP community over there and I ad a few nice chats with them.

Quite a few people were stopping at our booth, asking for things and chatting with Jabber gurus. My impression is that interest in Jabber was bigger this year than it was last year. Well, at least at the Jabber booth. We didn't have a room and presentations these year and most of the hot chats and discussions took place near the Jabber room last year. So maybe this is why more people were discussing stuff near the booth.

Florian showed a very cool and cute little machine assembled on a little motherboard. According to the spec this stuff takes much less power than an average laptop. Imagine a farm of such tiny devices running Jabber/XMPP cluster.
Hm, my wife wouldn't call it cute, but women have a different sense of "cutnes".

I have also seen blogging from a mobile device in action presented by Fabio and actually it was just blogging from a Jabber/XMPP client in action. It happen to be a mobile Jabber/XMPP client with enough capabilities to support ad-hoc commands. Very similar idea to my StanzaReceiver but in my case I haven't used ad-hoc commands. Just pure messages. Have a look at the right column on the Tigase website - "Minis from XMPP" are posts from my Jabber/XMPP client. This is good, XMPP is so flexible that you can achieve similar goals in different ways to better support end-user needs.

Tigase is back!

Tigase website and the service disappeared for over 2 weeks.

I am sorry for all the inconvenience and problems it could caused and for a disruption of the XMPP/Jabber service. We have now a business class Internet connection with 24/7 support and I believe it won't happen again.

Please let me know if you notice something wrong with the website or the service. Internet provider has changed and our network configuration has changed too, so there might be still some outstanding issues to solve.

Tigase code license change to GPLv3

From now all Tigase code is available under GPLv3 license.

To avoid confusion the version of the code has been also changed. All releases with version number below 3.0.0 are licensed under GPLv2 and the versions 3.0.0 and later are licensed under GPLv3.

If you need more information about motives behind this move I can't explain it better than rms did in his Why Upgrade to GPLv3 article.
