Biboumi 7.0 was just released.
The most important feature is the support for PostgreSQL as a database backend. Previously, biboumi admins were only able to store the data (archives, user preferences, etc) in a Sqlite3 database. With version 7.0, they can now use PostgreSQL if they prefer too.
This feature has been (financially) sponsored by Andrey Utkin, motivated by Jeff Baitis, a faithful biboumi and decent.im user. Thanks to both of them.
Other than that, it’s only a few bug fixes
For the future
The roadmap for version 8 is not yet entirely decided, but I might add support for auto-rejoining persistent room when the server disconnects us (ping timeout, or that kind of things). See the milestone for version 8.0 which will get updated with new feature requests, new bugs etc. And of course, don’t forget to hang out in biboumi’s XMPP chatroom: email@example.com.
