Changes to Obarun XMPP Chat Client

We regret to inform our users that Movim will no longer be supported as a client for the Obarun XMPP chat server. Despite our efforts, we have encountered persistent issues with Movim, including instability, broken updates, and discrepancies between Docker images and development tags.

As a result, the address is no longer valid.

We are pleased to introduce a new chat client as a replacement: Converse.js. This online hosting solution for Converse.js will ultimately become the official chat client for Obarun, integrated into our new website. Please note that while the solution is currently maintained by a third party, the XMPP server itself is still hosted on the Obarun server.

Instructions for connecting to the Obarun XMPP chat using Converse.js:
