Coccinella\'s whiteboard

Communicate with Coccinella

Coccinella is a free and open-source cross-platform communication tool with a built-in whiteboard for improved collaboration with other people.



File transfers has been a long standing problem within the jabber community and the present solution using the so called bytestreams protocol is far from perfect. A kind of improvement by using symmetric streamhosts called fast mode is being used by Psi and Coccinella, but this extension was rejected by the Jabber Council (?) for reasons unknown to me. I can guess why; it is a bit complicated to implement, especially with stream proxies.

Website Statistics

Coccinella's new website has been around for nearly a week (that page shows the date when I started writing the article, one day before the announcement has been published). So, I guess it is interesting to look at some website statistics (note that all statistics in this article are from the 25th of April until the 6 of May, unless stated elsewise).

XML Parsing

Normally people don't need to bother about XML parsing since they typically use expat or a java parser. I wrote my own which wasn't very difficult.

Movable Roster Columns

I have thought of adding movable roster columns some time and suddenly a flash stroke my head. This applies, of course, only to the avatar/flat roster styles, which btw. use identical code.

IRC actions

Antonio requested a few IRC style actions for the groupchat to be invaluable for some users. Just checked in a small sample of them.
