I have just added the latest CVS version of the Yahoo transport and it seems to be working from my initial tests. Please have a look at it and report findings. To make it work I removed all the old registrations on it, so you woul have to re-register the transport on your account.
This is a little beta, so no guarantees! 😀
Finally we found the error and now the service is running again. Since we changed server there might be some small issues still, like the transports that will come soon.
Thank you for your patience.
We are currently working to get the service up and running but we do not know what is causing the problems. Will post new information as soon as the service is working again.
As the Ubuntu version we are running has expired on support we need to upgrade. Last time weÃÂ upgraded we had lost of problems so we will install a new installation and reconfigure all services and do a switchover. When the new server is ready we will announce the switch.
We have also been updating the web page to make it more current, and plus the new version of WordPress has excellent plugins for multilanuage content which I have installed. During this phase some web services might not work.
I found this post on the jdev mailinglist about a new project called MUCKl that gives web users access to a chatroom without having a user on the server. I have installed it on this server and invite you to test it but since we have not tested it very much I cannot guarantee that it works. Though, all tests so far has worked fine 🙂
Choose Online Chatroom in the menu to test.
Now Microsoft has made a new Messenger, the one that will be the new version 8.0 when released. They have decided to give it a new name, Windows Live Messenger but it is really not that new. The beta testing is closed and distributed by invitations, and I got such an invitation from the py-transports mailing list and have therefor tested it. The client has new colors, a little fresher than the old, but I think many will have problems with the default orange :). Still it is full of comercials, buttons and stuff like the old one (I think it is becoming very bloated..!).
When it comes to the new stuff there will now be support for folder sharing, and offline message sending (which has been supported in ICQ forever, and in Jabber form the start!). The folder file sharing thing does not work yet but the offline message sending does. And I am happy to inform you that James on the PyMSNt devel team has already started to look into how to implement this support in the transport. Looking forward to that!
Soon the 0.11 version of the transport is ready, giving support for file transfers both ways with the new MSN Messenger clients. I have considered swapping the msn-beta over to the msn transport one of these days since the beta transport has proven pretty stable. Basically the only problems has been when upgrading it or when there has been problems with Ejabberd. I think hoever that the 0.11 release is pretty immident so I will wait for a few more days. Should there not come a realease we go over to running the CVS version in production for a while. Just note that the msn-beta users need to re-register on the msn transport since the msn-beta will be removed.
Since we have a lot of users that does not speak our native toungue we have decided to put up another page with english information. The basic mission of Jabber Norway is to provide a secure, upgraded and feature rich jabber server with good uptime and stability. We like to be current on versions of ejabberd and transports so we upgrade pretty quick. This might be a problem some times but for the most this has worked fine for our users. Every time we do service we send out a message on the server for online users so everyone knows what is going on.
More information on the english page will come soon. For now, just register on the Jabber server and start enjoying!
