The websocket communication protocol is quite a moving target, it changes several times a year, sometimes breaking compatibility with previous revisions. Cheyenne is now up-to-date and supports the last RFC revision (named "hybi-10"), starting from Cheyenne revision 155.

All protocol features have been implemented but some are not tested yet, as they require a custom-made client (the Javascript websocket API does not support those features yet AFAICT):

  • Ping/pong frames
  • Fragmented frames

The server-side user API has been left untouched, a ping command might be added later though. The  websocket chat demo has been upgraded too and now supports Chrome 14+, FF8+ and IE10.
