Jabber gets a Journal

We've needed a weekly news report about Jabber for ages. Finally someone has gotten organized enough to publish it.
Now where is the RSS feed? Ah, I guess it is just part of the Jabber News feed.

iChatting to Jabber

Just a little rumor iChat to support Jabber which would be cool and given the rumor that iChat is really just a Jabber server and client in one probably very easy to do.

A Whole New Site, er "Jabber Software Foundation", has a masively updated site. Looks good guys.

JabberConf News

Doc blogged Jeremie's talk at JabberConf. The big highlights:
Apache 2.0 mod_jabber - you can run a jabber server inside an apache server, and administer it through Apache functions, logins, extensions, etc. It integrates jabber funct into the apache world
Apple's new iChat... In Jaguar release of OS X iChat will integrate AIM funcitonality, and will contain jabber funcitonality, not yet exposed to users. It will use the Jabber protocol when iChat is communicating with ohters in the local system. (The global server is AOLs, he told me last night.) iChat has Jabber protocol elements implemented inside of it as well, so perhaps they can turn on iChat as a Jabber client at some point. Jeremie is appealing to people who know people at Apple to open communications with folks. (Last night we talked about how this should be happening in much the same way as Apple is working with the Darwin/BSD community and other outside open source efforts (e.g. the gcc) � in a geek2geek way. Organic, among peers interested in seeing the common infrastructure developed and carried forward as better foundational stuff.

Jabber Stuff

JabberTools is a set of tools that help make it easy to use and convert to using Jabber.
The Jabber Web Steward allows users to submit requests for new accounts and allows administrators to allow or deny these requests.
JabberSMTP is a single Perl5 script for bi-directional translation between email and Jabber messages. It acts as a simple MTA and can occupy port 25, although there are ways around that if you don't have root access. Using JabberSMTP, a Jabber user can receive email messages in any Jabber client, and even create or reply to emails from that Jabber client.
Collected for arcterex, but maybe some of the rest of ya will find them useful.

Appoitments in Jabber

jabber reminder
reminder is a miniature scheduling and notification server module. You can set events that you would like to be reminded of, along with a time for the notification, and if you are online when the time comes around, Jabber will send you a message to let you know.
Yet some more intresting posiabilities. Especiallyf or follks who like doing things through instant messaging other than text messages.

Jabber Shell

jabber telnet

telnet provides a telnet-based command line interface to a Jabber server. Users can log in with a telnet client, and issue simple commands to send and receive messages and presence.

Kinda along the lines of something engel and I were talking about yesterday. Think of the posiability of using Jabber as a command line? Send a message to copy a file. Has some potential, maybe.
