We just upgraded ejabberd to 2.1.10. Therefore the service was down for some minutes. Everything should be up and running again.

One of the main reasons we were really looking forward for ejabberd 2.1.6 is the support of captcha for mod_register. This module handles in-band registration, which means the interface where users can register through their client. This interface is also abused by spammers. We hope that the use of captchas will prevent most spam registrations.
If you client does not support captcha you well see a url where you can see the captcha in your browser window.
Finally the Debian package for ejabberd 2.1.6 is available. Therefore we will perform an upgrade to ejabberd 2.1.6 in the next minutes. There will be a short service outage.
During this night (CEST) we upgraded the Jabber server to ejabberd 2.1.5 – this time the Debian package came available very soon.
At about noon CEST today I just upgraded the server to ejabberd 2.1.4, which is a bugfixing release. Finally the Debian package is available. Sorry for the less than five minute short service downtime.
