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


To contributors, editors, reviewers, translators

Live discussion

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.

Make sure you read the Basic communication guide for XMPP techies
