Privacy Lists are available now, Prosody 0.6 soon will be

Today we enabled a module (mod_privacy) which implements XEP-0016 in Prosody.

This specification defines an XMPP protocol extension for enabling or disabling communication with other entities on a network. The protocol, which was first standardized in Section 10 of RFC 3921, can be used to block communication with unknown or undesirable entities. Blocking can be based on Jabber Identifier, subscription state, or roster group. The blocked stanzas can be messages, IQs, inbound or outbound presence stanzas, or all stanzas. The protocol also enables an entity to create, modify, or delete its privacy lists, apply different lists to different connected resources, define a default list, and decline the use of any privacy list during a particular communications session.

We thank Thilo Cestonaro for his work, he is currently working on mod_proxy65 (implementing XEP-0065, supposed to ease filetransfers), which is likely to be followed by a logging plugin. It will enable MUC owners to enable logging for their room.

But not only are there more and more plugins contributed by the growing Prosody community, Prosody itself is close to a release candidate of version 0.6.
As always it will include a lot of bug fixes as well as major new features, this time including S2S TLS support.
