The Ignite Realtime community is happy to announce the release of version 3.8.2 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 adds BOSH functionality for setting CORS headers and improves Pub-Sub support. There is also a new Atlassian Crowd provider!  Various stability improvements were made as well. 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.

Now that Firefox Beta has WebRTC enabled by default, it was time to upgrade the WebRTC audio/video demo to support Firefox. Even though changes were minimal and I could do Firefox<->Firefox as well as Chrome<->Firefox, there is still an outstanding issue that is a show stopper for me.




Firefox does not yet support trickle ICE candidates and consequently does not work with Jingle Relay Nodes. This means we cannot use Openfire to act as a media bridge and relay media when both WebRTC peers cannot connect directly with each other as we can do with Chrome.


I am hoping this will be fixed before formal release in June. In the meantime, you can test it at Just make sure you have Firefox beta or latest Chrome browsers. As usual, source code is attached for those curious to see or reuse in their own applications.
