Hello everybody, I hope this is not regarded as spam, as it is the announcement of a useful development resource.
I'm proud to announce the availability of MASTERION, a messaging server aimed to serve social applications (such as games). MASTERION differs from similar networks in the use of the XMPP protocol, making it available to any application regardless its implementation language, operating system or hardware. It differs from other XMPP servers in that it will implement specific features for social applications, for example scoreboards.
There are plenty of libraries that help implementing XMPP clients. Check http://xmpp.org/ for more info about the protocol. Check http://masterion.com for more info about MASTERION.
Thank you for your attention, I'll be around to answer any question you may have.
