Release Notes: An inter-server synchronization and remote control protocol has been added. The ability to enter Jabber chat rooms (XMPP MUC) from PSYC has been added. There have been great improvements to the PSYC client-server protocol. There is more flexibility in configuration and chat room programming. An email to chatroom gateway has been added to the SMTP server, and psycmail notification can now be compiled directly into procmail. Many improvements have been made to the IRC, XMPP, and HTTP implementations. Countless bugs have been fixed.

Release Notes: The ability to link into IRC networks as an IRC service was added, resulting in all functionality of psyced becoming available to each IRC network user, like federated messaging with PSYC and XMPP/Jabber users, extensive friendship modeling, presence, trust metrics, Web-based profiles, and even newscast subscriptions. A multiprotocol /ping command was added. SRV support was fixed to compile on BSD. The ability to automatically upgrade XMPP to the PSYC protocol was fixed. Support for gentoo portage was improved. Several minor fixes were made.

Release Notes: 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 and runtime.

Release Notes: Scalable route discovery simplifies the tasks of implementing distributed chat channels and multicasting presence. A new /shout command routes a message efficiently to all friends, no matter how many. The installation procedure has been fixed and updated. The interface for native PSYC clients is enhanced. The built-in Web server comes with a useful starting page. /me has a new sister called /my. There have been major improvements all over, making this version a candidate for large scale release.

Release Notes: psycMUVE now implements interserver XMPP/Jabber, which makes it a fine solution to host chat channels for Jabber, IRC, and PSYC users alike. They can speak freely (using the new xmpp: URL scheme) and make friendships across the PSYC and Jabber networks. A tighter security scheme makes PSYC quite safe from abuse. Unicode UTF-8 and other charsets are supported. Personal nick-namespaces were implemented. The Java Applet has been updated. The SMTP port accepts SEND/SOML/SAML for messaging. IRC gateway handles more flavors of IRC networks. Gateways are accessed across the PSYC network by default.

Release Notes: This release adds TLS/SSL support (both OpenSSL and gnutls are accepted) to IRC, telnet, Jabber, and the built-in Web server. is up to date. There are non-blocking DNS resolutions and connects. There are message buffers for all outgoing services, and TCP connections are automatically re-established. There is experimental support for Jabber dialback and interserver protocol. New iconv support will soon allow for Unicode support. There are many minor improvements and fixes.

Release Notes: A powerful new Web configurator was added, allowing all administrative parameters to be set and specialized chatrooms to be created without technical knowledge. The ICQ gateway works like the IRC and AIM gateways. The IRC server is RFC compliant, and can safely replace a regular ircd. SSL/TLS is experimentally applicable to IRC and JABBER access. Those who install this release should remember to run the cvs update after installing.

Release Notes: This release has a new AIM gateway, which sports the same commands as the IRC networks gateway: just talk to "PSYCgate" on either AIM or major IRC networks. The applet source code for Web chat is included. A minimal HTTP server is included, which allows for live chat logs on Web pages, etc. There is a new RSS-to-newsroom gateway, new blog-style multiline messaging rooms, and experimental support for NNTP and SMTP. IRC access is more reliable, as is Jabber. Interpsyc usability has been improved.
