OK, time for me to make an apology.

I hadn't used XMPP for quite a while. While I liked it last time I used it there were issues keeping connections and the clients were less than stellar.

While the desktop clients for Linux are still a little shaky I can recommend Quicksy (thank you @moparisthebest for the recommendation).

I've been crabby when people recommend XMPP because I didn't realize that folks have taken XMPP from an early 21st century protocol to a joy to use.

@tpheine @sesivany blech. server side still closed, so we need to trust a company instead of being able to run our own servers and federate. that is the kind of shit that brought us to this situation of 5 walled garden apps installed on devices. fuck silos. #matrix #xmpp

Today, we released eturnal 1.2.0, which adds a module for logging STUN/TURN stats to InfluxDB (contributed by Marc Schink): eturnal.net

After testing Siskin and Monal for a few days, my impression is that XMPP is now way more usable on iOS than it was back in the days. Many thanks to @tigase for their great work on Siskin IM.

In case any Erlang people happen to be interested in straightforward support for systemd's notification/watchdog features:

Note to self: Logging a message from a function that handles log messages is not that much of a great idea.

FWIW, we (pre-)released a new piece of TURN server software today:

eturnal.net

Next naming issue ahead! (Hardest problem in programming.)

If you were to publish a TURN server (written in Erlang), what name would you choose? Some suggestions:

During our next (virtual) XMPP meetup on Wednesday, 18:00 CEST, Daniel Gultsch and me will give an introduction to the technologies used for A/V calls with XMPP. Topics discussed will include Jingle, ICE/STUN/TURN, (S)RTP, and WebRTC. The meetup will take place on Jitsi Meet, see:
