MongooseIM 1.6.1 is released

MongooseIM 1.6.1 is now out, and we are pretty happy with the work we’ve done. This release starts the maintenance series 1.6.x. MongooseIM 1.6.1 is about “more”: more Riak KV, more tests, more enhancements. Read below to find out what’s new.

Riak KV

We extended the support for Riak KV by continuing the work with modules such as the roster (the XMPP contact list) and XEP-0012: Last Activity (a pretty venerable XEP!). Riak KV support for the remaining modules will be completed with release 1.6.2.


Test coverage has been significantly improved and extended with the latest release: admin module, encrypted S2S, C2S ciphers, ACL, inband registration. We already have a solid, clean code base but you can never have enough of a good thing, so test coverage brings you even more confidence.

Enhancements and fixes

Many bugs got smashed in 1.6.1. Furhermore, to show our love for DevOps we improved cleanup after a node’s death and added a new reliable API for JID manipulation.
