ejabberd 17.01

We’re pleased to announce the first version of ejabberd for 2017.
This new ejabberd 17.01 follows closely the previous release. It includes mostly bug fixes over all the previous refactors.

Ejabberd 17.01 is a rock-solid stable base for upcoming improvements. It will give you the best experience you ever had with ejabberd.
If you ever wanted to upgrade your old ejabberd 2.1.13 or need a stable base for your server running the next couple of months, 17.01 is your best opportunity to get this done now!

  1. When will full xep-0178 support make it to the community version? You say you don’t hold features out of the community build, but that’s been in the commercial build for over a year.
