Rocket.Chat 0.66.0 Released


#1

This release brings more performance improvements as well as a few other great features.

One that I would like to highlight as an important feature for the community:

This basically allows you to run an irc server next to Rocket.Chat and bridge it. Allowing people to connect to IRC and communicate with everyone in your Rocket.Chat server.

This is definitely an alpha feature. We would love the community participation in testing it.
