The Ignite Realtime community is happy to announce the release of version 3.8.1 of Openfire! Downloads for various platforms are available here.


Openfire is a real time collaboration (RTC) server licensed under the Open Source Apache license. It uses the only widely adopted open protocol for instant messaging, XMPP (also called Jabber). Openfire is incredibly easy to setup and administer, but offers rock-solid security and performance.


This release is primarily a bugfix release that addresses issues that were reported after the release of 3.8.0, a few weeks ago. Release 3.8.1 includes fixes for, amongst others, shared groups and pubsub-related issues. The release also improves the robustness of loading the Multi-User Chat service at start-up. The changelog lists these and other changes in more detail.


As always, we welcome your feedback, suggestions, tips, hints, questions and other contributions in the Ignite Realtime Community pages.
