I have turned Chat Room over to the original developer. I have created a Drupal 7 Chat module, but have not had time to work on it for a while. Specifically, user status tracking is incomplete. Here are the plans for the currently dormant Chat project:
- Have no default dependencies beyond Drupal itself.
- Offer a BOSH override for Drupal’s built-in AJAX. AJAX requires repeatedly polling the site for updates, and does not allow connections to be shared. BOSH delays the server response until data is available.
- Provide a default backend for message exchange, but allow users to replace it with others.
