Project Release Information
PSYC presence was introduced with availability and
mood functions. Jabber presence was upgraded along
with it, and CTCP PRESENCE was added to IRC.
Simple NickServ-compatibility for IRC users was
also added. Spam protection on the SMTP port was
improved. Various fixes were made to installation
Distributed place and user profiles with photos and personalized style sheets allow you to browse your social network. Trust relationships propagate along, so a friend of a friend trusts you more than a random stranger. New commands allow you to define how much you trust your friends and whether they or you want them to be visible in your profile. Support for the new PsycZilla client was improved. The IRC gateway can now connect to IRC networks as a server. Support for Weblog pings (XML-RPC, SOAP), embedded HTML in RSS, remote Textdb, and JSON data exports was added. Several fixes and cleanups were made.
This release comes with a new centralized configuration scheme and Gentoo ebuilds. The optional builtin SMTP server acts as messaging gateway and rejects plenty of spam. The size of the distribution was reduced thanks to a more efficient text database format. Improvements and fixes were made to the Jabber client access port. Experimental support for as-is delivery of unknown Jabber XML across PSYC was added, which enables many inter-client features such as file transfer.
This release adds several fixes and improvements in the Jabber
implementation, asynchronous authentication, Mediawiki integration, more
ready-to-use conference control options, a multipass shutdown sequence,
new setting to filter presence, and XMLRPC Support. The MUC Emulation
now allows remote Jabber users a large part of the standard PSYC command
set, not just /me. Runtime errors can now be displayed in a fancy
This release adds PSYC protocol feature negotiation, so clients can
switch to TLS instead of connecting to a custom port, improved Jabber
roster handling, allowing remote Jabber/XMPP users to execute commands
in chatrooms, not just /me, and minor bugfixes.
psyced is a distributed chat and messaging system based on the Protocol for SYnchronous Conferencing. PSYC is multicast and routed between servers and clients in a scalable and efficient way, but users can also comfortably use IRC clients, telnet, Web chat, WAP, or Jabber to enter the network. psyced also communicates with the network of Jabber/XMPP servers and hosts programmable chat rooms for all of these technologies at once. It also provides gateways to several IRC networks, but unlike IRC, everyone can run a server and be an equal member of the PSYC network. It supports PSYC, XMPP, IRC, TELNET, HTTP, Applet, SMTP, WAP, XML, RSS, and TLS.
