I've just released Converse.js version 6.0.0.

Release notes:

The biggest change is support for storing data (e.g. messages) in IndexedDB which has no size restrictions. It's not yet the default store, but will be eventually.

Another big change is support for XEP-0156 Alternative Connections. Now on you can connect directly to your server without requiring a BOSH middleman.

Another exciting addition to Converse.js 6.0.0 is support for message retraction (i.e. removal) by the author (XEP-0424) or by a groupchat admin (XEP-0425).

These are brand new XEPs that I helped author and I'm not aware of other clients which already support them. Hopefully they will do so soon.

I thought #conversations did? Or at least #pixart?

At least the latter has a “delete message” option, though maybe it just edits the previous message?

@muppeth I think there has been a setting for it since a while. Comes with some security concerns though. You can also do a custom login page and have autologin.
Cool. I will look into that this weekend. Do you have any info about it? How are the creds stored etc.


How does this play out in #Firefox on private mode? ISTR it disables #indexedDB if you're on private?

How could I miss that in my feedreader. Guess I have to update soon.
