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.
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.
