Out of sync

    I’m hoping someone can help point me in the right direction: I’ve gotten out of sync between a couple of ports (prosody and lua): Running freebsd-update / pkg upgrade etc I noticed prosody was not updating from 0.11.13 - some features I need are in the next release (0.12 something). I didn’t...

    Build in one machine, install on another; versions of Lua

    Opensource communication frameworks: XMPP, SIP, AMQP, MQTT, CAP, IAX

    An opensource framework allows interoperable and inter-organizational use between different offerings (or servers). Signal can't be compared in this category, because it is simply an opensource client offered by one provider or organization, and not a standard for interoperable use: it can be...

    XMPP extensions

    How would one know certain XMPP extensions are enabled? or how would they be enabled? For security, for cool features, and for purposes of reducing overhead on constrained networks. Core specifications carry the same XEP number throughout their entire cycle. Final and Draft extension protocols...

    How is SIP/SIMPLE for an XMPP alternative?

    How is SIMPLE for an XMPP messaging alternative? Both are accepted IETF open-source standards. XMPP is great, except it has a lot of overhead (sometimes heavy lag) because it uses XML. Is SIMPLE as secure as XMPP?

    Comparisons of XMPP, Signal, MQTT, Tox, Telegram

    XMPP is said to have a lot of overhead, in part because it uses XML. Also, each message must pass through servers that were used for establishing the connection, rather than more directly afterwards. Telegram markets itself as being very secure, but I've seen past comments that were dubious...
