Support for MUC (Multi-User Chat) has been added and you can now join the official chatroom “email@example.com”. I have made a guide on how to connect with Pidgin here.
Also mod_onions support is back and the new hidden service is “y2qmqomqpszzryei.onion”. You can use this to register an account if you’re using Tor.
When I rebooted the server recently to patch some linux kernel vulnerabilities it messed up Prosody and was unable to read the certificate files because of a bash script I made to copy over the Let’s Encrypt certificates in a cronjob. I did chmod 600 instead of 700 in the script so it made the files unreadable to Prosody. WOW was that a dumb mistake… Sorry about that! Good thing it was only about 20 minutes of downtime. Took me a while to figure it out while I was tired. (Note to self, don’t reboot server when tired).
Here is the script if you were curious.
We made the switch to a new dedicated server last night (find more info on the about page) and have also made the switch to using Let’s Encrypt certificates. Sorry for any disruption in service this has caused, everything should be running smoothly now.
DNSSEC is currently disabled for a while until I figure out why ISNIC can’t reach my master nameserver (ganymede.ns.lunar.systems). Sorry about that 🙁
There has been a concerning vulnerability found in libotr. You should upgrade that package immediately. More details at otr.cypherpunks.ca/news.php.
