It's a great pleasure to inform you that we have released Waartaa 0.1, finally. Again, a big thanks goes to the team of contributors for Waartaa to make this happen.

This release includes all the basic IRC functionalities, centralized logging, notifications, etc. implemented in release v0.1-rc1. We worked on a lot of optimizations and automated the deployment process for Waartaa to make using and maintaining Waartaa as simple as possible. You can get the source in the following way:

1 $ git clone
2 $ cd waartaa
3 $ git checkout 0.1

What's new?

  • Backend optimizations
    • OPLOG support
    • Rate limit tasks using queues
    • Async calls to database
    • Improve MongoDB performance in limited RAM
    • Reduce storage complexity for channel logs
  • Client optimizations and improvements
    • Smooth rendering of chat logs
    • Use latency compensation to make improve user experience
    • Optimize client side memory usage
  • Upgrade to Meteor 0.8.1
  • Easy server provisioning
  • Easy app deployment
  • Vagrant script for easy setup of dev sandbox



Currently, Waartaa runs as a monolithic app. In the future, we'd be dividing Waartaa into several components/layers so that it becomes possible to horizantally scale a Waartaa service.
