Infinispan chat moves to Zulip

For over 9 years Infinispan has used IRC for real-time interaction between the development team, contributors and users. While IRC has served us well over the years, we decided that the time has come to start using something better. After trying out a few "candidates" we have settled on Zulip


Zulip gives us many improvements over IRC and over many of the other alternatives out there. In particular:

  • multiple conversation streams

  • further filtered with the use of topics

  • organization management to organize users into groups

  • it’s open source

So, if you want to chat with us, join us on the Infinispan Zulip Organization.

Get it, Use it, Ask us!

We’re hard at work on new features, improvements and fixes, so watch this space for more announcements!

Please, download and test the latest release.

The source code is hosted on GitHub. If you need to report a bug or request a new feature, look for a similar one on our JIRA issues tracker. If you don’t find any, create a new issue.

If you have questions, are experiencing a bug or want advice on using Infinispan, you can use GitHub discussions. We will do our best to answer you as soon as we can.

The Infinispan community uses Zulip for real-time communications. Join us using either a web-browser or a dedicated application on the Infinispan chat.
