    Release Notes: The authentication process has been simplified to a single client random UID to be more compatible with simple devices and IE. The JavaScript has been rewritten to meet server requirements. The channel now has a timeout of 2 minutes. The server will keep the client session for 10 seconds until it decides that the client has really disconnected. A new configuration parameter "channel" has been implemented to declare channels' listeners. A new funcion getStats has been added to show stats of the server. A graceful shutdown has been implemented on break or other signals.
