Hi folks,

We are pleased to announce the release of Prosody 0.11.6.

This release brings a collection of fixes and improvements added since
the 0.11.5 release improving security, performance, usability and

This version continues the deprecation of using prosodyctl to start/stop
Prosody if it is installed system-wide. You should use your init
system’s appropriate commands to manage the Prosody process instead. You
can silence the warnings with the ‘prosodyctl_service_warnings’ option.
Init scripts should invoke prosody directly as the correct user, and
pass -F or -D depending on whether Prosody should stay in the foreground
or detach (daemonize).

A summary of changes since the previous release:
