I would like to announce the new stable release of ejabberd 0.7.5.

Release highlights:

    * Support for STARTTLS with C2S connections
    * Support for authentification via external script
    * Added module which implement JUD and vCard services using LDAP
    * Improvements in web-based administration interface (user
      creation/removal, roster and offline queue management)
    * Support for announce/all and announce/motd
    * Support for logging of packets via external service (e.g. Bandersnatch)
    * Support for message expiration (JEP-0023)
    * Support for searching of prefix substring in JUD
    * Added limit of number of search result items in JUD
    * Support for HTTPS in web interface
    * Bugfix: HTTP Poll service correctly handles requests with unquoted "%"
      in HTTP body now
    * Bugfix: Fixed processing of negative priority
    * Bugfix: There was incorrect closing condition in outgoing S2S connection
      handling which result in useless unverifiable <db:result> request
    * Bugfix: Destroying of persistent room now correctly removes it from
      persistent storage

Upgrading from ejabberd-0.7:

    * Format of offline storage DB table was changed, and ejabberd-0.7.5 will
      convert it during startup.  This can lead to slower first startup after
      upgrade (up to few minutes if you have hungreds of thousands offline
      messages in DB).

    * Processing of announce messages is in separate module now, so you need to
      add mod_announce to "modules" section in ejabberd.cfg:

        {mod_announce,   [{access, announce}]},

    * If you wish to use STARTTLS support and use built-in TLS driver to
      support old-style SSL client connection, you need to update configuration
      for ports 5222 and 5223 in "listen" section:

        {5222, ejabberd_c2s,     [{access, c2s}, {shaper, c2s_shaper},
			          starttls, {certfile, "./ssl.pem"}]},
        {5223, ejabberd_c2s,     [{access, c2s},
			          tls, {certfile, "./ssl.pem"}]},
