Second XMPP transport and Facebook transport for Facebook use only

As mentioned here we finally have the feature which allows us to limit our Facebook transport for Facebook use only. We will delete all non Facebook accounts from the Facebook transport later today. You will be able to recreate these accounts on our second and new XMPP transport called xmpp.jabber.hot-chilli.net. We created this second XMPP transport because we noticed that more than one XMPP transport seems to be important for many people.

If you used Facebook transport for general XMPP usage and are a local hot-chilli Jabber user we delete all old contacts containing @facebook.jabber.hot-chilli.net in your roster for you. If you are a non-local user you might have to do this by yourself – which means that you have to delete all contacts containing @facebook.jabber.hot-chilli.net. When unregistering the accounts Spectrum sends unsubscribe notices to the Jabber servers, local and non-local. But all of you (local and non-local users) have to delete any leftover and obsolete contacts which might be left in your roster and/or the Jabber client.

We will announce when we finished the chances on the server here in the blog.

To activate the second XMPP transport the Jabber server will be restarted at 5:50 CEST today.
