Why was the website so slow for so long?

The cause of the slowdown was a change to the ZFS dataset. In conjunction with the database server, very little caching was being done. This combination resulted in increased disk I/O as the system churned through the database. Details in the blog post which outlines the various things which changed. Many graphs.

Chase devel/libmatthew plist changes

- Bring back vendored libmatthew JARs. It turns out that the build script
  is not picking up the ports version of libmatthew when generating the
  signal-cli script (share/signal-cli/bin/signal-cli). Use the vendored
  version for now.
- Remove an unnecessary comment.

New port: Command-line and D-Bus interface for Signal and libsignal-service-java

signal-cli is a command-line interface for libsignal-service-java. It
supports registering, verifying, sending and receiving messages. To be able
to link to an existing Signal-Android/signal-cli instance, signal-cli uses
a patched libsignal-service-java, because libsignal-service-java does not
yet support provisioning as a slave device. For registering you need a
phone number where you can receive SMS or incoming calls. signal-cli is
primarily intended to be used on servers to notify admins of important
events. For this use-case, it has a dbus interface, that can be used to
send messages from any programming language that has dbus bindings.
