News and Articles for the next XMPP Newsletter

From XMPP WIKI
Jump to: navigation, search

Here you can submit news items for inclusion in the next XMPP Newsletter (as managed by the CommTeam).


What determines relevancy?

The submission must ideally be a blog or article about XMPP/Jabber and/or XMPP-based software (clients, servers, libs).

Some exceptions might be made, for example for a release page showing a new release of some XMPP-based software.

However, marketing brochures (e.g. single-page marketing sites) for new products which don't contain information on XMPP, won't be included.

Submissions

Loads of news for these two months of July and August: two events in Lyon and Stockholm, new tools, new server releases (Openfire, ejabberd), lots of client releases (Kaidan, Salut à Toi, Xabber Android, Movim, Converse, Beagle IM and Siskin IM). The XMPP/Jabber community is alive and kicking!
