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.


Official website launched

The Coccinella project is pleased to officially announce its brand new website which is located at and

Highlights of the new website include:

Search & Find

A long term request has been for a search function in the roster. I haven't seen the need for this since my rosters are usually experimental and small, but my current work on optimizations for large rosters put the focus on a roster find function.

Linux Fonts

Since I have had several requests on improving the appearance on Linux by using the typical desktop fonts, I started investigating it. I thought it should be a simple task by just switching the default fonts, but was not.

Google Buys Swedish

For the second time in a short period of time Google is buying a Swedish company. This time it is Marratech which makes video conference solutions, see NyTeknik (Swedish, sorry).

It is therefore likely that we will see gtalk expanded with video, which is an educated guess. Well, one small step for mankind, one giant leap for XMPP.

Roster benchmarking revisited

I was not able to leave the roster benchmarking before I was confident it could handle large rosters. Testing code in a reliable manner can be more difficult than actually producing the code itself but I found a method.
