If you are interested in the Tigase project and want to participate in any way you can request an account on the website and Jabber server in domain tigase.org. Please use the contact form to request the account and describe your planed involvement in the project. You can report bugs or request new features on the project tracker.
If you are looking for a free, XMPP account offered from the Tigase based service you should check the Tigase.im Website. This is the place where the last development version of the Tigase server is running. Check the website for more details.

A while ago, I have written an article about Linux settings for high load systems. This is a description for just very basic settings which are essential to successfully run XMPP service for hundred of thousands online users.
Normally you would not call something a load test if there are just 40 user connections opened to the server.
This time, however the Tigase was running on the mobile phone which is itself an interesting achievement. One thing, however is to just run the application and another is to actually make it do something useful.
The Tigase running there was just the standard version you can download from the website, no single line of code was changed. And also the N900 was running all the standard applications as a fully functional mobile phone.
The only change I made to the phone was installation of the JRE and Bash shell, the rest remained unchanged and none of applications running on the phone was stopped.
All the connections to the server were established via mobile network and all the connections were encrypted with TLS.
I am at the XMPP Summit/FOSDEM now. Thanks to people form Nokia we have an opportunity to play and run some software on N900 devices and thanks to Florian from Flosoft we have SIM cards for data transfer.
What is the most tempting thing for the software developer? Well, at least for me is to run my software on any possible device.
Taking the opportunity to use N900 and play with it I just had to try to run Tigase on it. I have already tested Tigase on small computers, Netbooks with ATOMs and small amount of memory. Tigase passes all tests when run with 10MB of memory so I was pretty sure N900 has enough memory and power to run Tigase.
The good thing is that it is very well integrated with the website. I am going to add trackers for other sub-projects as well (MUC, PubSub, etc...), they can use Drupal accounts, tickets can be moved between trackers and we have all the development related stuff in one place. I hope it works well.
