Project Release Information
Minor improvements in PSYC client support and major bugfixes in Jabber client support have been made.
An inter-server synchronization and remote control protocol has been added. The ability to enter Jabber chat rooms (XMPP MUC) from PSYC has been added. There have been great improvements to the PSYC client-server protocol. There is more flexibility in configuration and chat room programming. An email to chatroom gateway has been added to the SMTP server, and psycmail notification can now be compiled directly into procmail. Many improvements have been made to the IRC, XMPP, and HTTP implementations. Countless bugs have been fixed.
The ability to link into IRC networks as an IRC
service was added, resulting in all functionality
of psyced becoming available to each IRC network
user, like federated messaging with PSYC and
XMPP/Jabber users, extensive friendship modeling,
presence, trust metrics, Web-based profiles, and
even newscast subscriptions. A multiprotocol /ping
command was added. SRV support was fixed to
compile on BSD. The ability to automatically
upgrade XMPP to the PSYC protocol was fixed.
Support for gentoo portage was improved. Several
minor fixes were made.
Recent updates in the installer have been fixed.
Driver configuration has been optimized. The
/connect command serves the purpose of switching
your identity within your session.
New discovery commands were added when dealing
with remote Jabber entities. Tag-operated message
callbacks were added. User data synchronization
can be used between psyced servers and other
applications. Bugfixes were made in the install
procedure and other parts of the code.
psyced is a distributed chat and messaging system based on the Protocol for SYnchronous Conferencing. PSYC is multicast and routed between servers and clients in a scalable and efficient way, but users can also comfortably use IRC clients, telnet, Web chat, WAP, or Jabber to enter the network. psyced also communicates with the network of Jabber/XMPP servers and hosts programmable chat rooms for all of these technologies at once. It also provides gateways to several IRC networks, but unlike IRC, everyone can run a server and be an equal member of the PSYC network. It supports PSYC, XMPP, IRC, TELNET, HTTP, Applet, SMTP, WAP, XML, RSS, and TLS.
