This release comes with some long-awaited features, like Stream Management, proper roster handling, improved error display and better internationalization.
With great pleasure we want to announce a new public service brought to you by yaxim.org - the yax.im (read: Yaks’ IM) public XMPP server.
To register with it, open your XMPP client (e.g. yaxim), choose a JID of your liking that ends with @yax.im, like email@example.com and activate “Register new account”.
Up-Update: the following text was posted on April Fools’ day, 2013. There is no commercial version of yaxim, and the only money making plans we have is to add donation support, sometime in the far future.
After almost four year of development, we are proud to announce that yaxim, our Open Source XMPP client, is sufficiently mature to fulfill even the needs of large corporate customers. And like with any project that grows from your garage to become a viable product, the day comes when its commercial future needs to be set.
Starting Tuesday, yaxim will adapt its pricing to the competitive levels set by the Mobile Network Operators with their new Rich Communication Services (also known as joyn™). However, there is no need to worry. For most of our loyal customers, the free Basic plan will be more than sufficient. For other customers, we offer the Standard, Advanced and Professional plans at reasonable monthly rates.
We, the yaxim developers, would like to congratulate Redsolution for finally making Xabber Open-Source! Together with Beem and Gibberbot we now have four Open-Source XMPP clients for Android, all based on asmack, the Android “port” of the SMACK XMPP library. But we still have a long way to go to be attractive to the masses!
