XMPP Radar Newsletter #2

As you may remember, last month we launched a newsletter about all things XMPP, called XMPP Radar. The goal of this newsletter is to inform readers about what has happened in the XMPP world each month.

We are happy to present you the second issue of XMPP Radar, with interesting links from August. You can subscribe to the newsletter, and do not hesitate to tweet XMPP Radar to suggest interesting links for the next issue, at end of September 2015.
