@z428 @stevenroose @hinterwaeldler problem being - there were usually a couple of ideas how to solve particular problem (file sending being one example) but it seems that community is starting to converge on particular solutions (and there are compat suites for each year). For file transfer HTTP Upload seems to be the most popular one, working with the majority of clients (and even groupchat). If you experienced problem then that's weird - even if recipient uses older client it would get just a http link…
@z428 @stevenroose @hinterwaeldler actually this is also beauty and curse of XMPP - it's flexible and could be tailored to particular needs. And you, as a user have choice - maybe you are privacy oriented and don't want contact discovery then use server x, maybe you do, then user server y. #XMPP has also built-in mechanism of discovering features and it can be used to gracefully adjust the service.
If you are from #Dresden and have nothing todo this evening this could be interesting:
Today the second #XMPP #Meetup takes place. Andrzej Wójcik from Tigase Inc. will talk about their Clients and Server. They also have a newcomming iOS client. He'll also talk about other project of Tigase that involve XMPP.
@Muto thank you for the comment - we may enable encryption by default in the future.
As for statistics - we are considering other solutions and planning to switch from analytics for the exact same reason :-) unfortunately I can't give you any ETA right now.
@Navigation what kind of help are you looking for?
