Existing user accounts have been migrated and should continue to function mostly the way you're used to. However, a few things have changed:

  • we no longer offer any transports (for ICQ, MSN, AIM, GaduGadu, Yahoo or IRC)
  • accounts with email addresses that didn't exist anymore were excluded from the migration
  • from now on unused user accounts will be deleted after one year
  • all MUC rooms (Multi User Chat) (even those that were lost a few years ago) have been restored as <ROOMNAME>
  • from now on unused MUC rooms will be deleted after 90 days
  • we no longer offer the Flash based SparkWeb client or the JavaScript based CampusWebTalk client on our server
  • we're considering providing converse.js as a web client on this server, if you would like to see this implemented please contact us
  • we now support a ton of new features that will make your life easier, a few examples:
  • as a result, support for mobile devices has increased significantly and commuciations with external Jabber servers are working smoothly again
