JC Brand is announcing that Converse.js with version number 0.9.4 is already available to download.
What is Converse.js ?
Converse.js can be added on top of any existing website, regardless of its platform, and provide a way for webmasters to talk to their site visitors.The entire chat system uses a (public or private) XMPP/Jabber server underneath the hood, relaying messages between registered and logged in users.Support is included for multiple chat rooms and private messaging, allowing users to get help from a support staff in the chat room or in private from their friends.Chat related features like room invitations, contacts list, contact groups, user status, and real-time typing notifications are all included.Some other features are also packed with Converse.js, features like support for translations, vCards, message encryption, in-band registrations, contact subscriptions, and service discovery. As you’d find out yourself while using it, Converse.js is very similar to the Facebook chat, works in near real-time, and has community developed plugins for platforms like WordPress, Alfresco, Django, Plone, Roundcube, and Patternslib.All in all a pretty solid product, something you don’t usually get every day from open sourced projects.
