@codeberg Here some reasons why I was asking about "sustainable operation":
"Unless Disroot becomes our main occupation, which in fact it already is as some of us spend more time working on it than on a dayjob, we need a bucket of ice and slow down a little."

I've just released Converse.js version 6.0.0.

Release notes:

The biggest change is support for storing data (e.g. messages) in IndexedDB which has no size restrictions. It's not yet the default store, but will be eventually.

Another big change is support for XEP-0156 Alternative Connections. Now on inverse.chat you can connect directly to your #xmpp server without requiring a BOSH middleman.
