The Ignite Realtime Community is pleased to announce a release candidate build of the upcoming 3.10.0 release. A lot of work has gone into this RC since the beta release a few months back and with your help testing, we are hoping to turn around a full 3.10.0 release very soon! Here are some of the highlights since the beta:
- OF-885 : Use non-blocking, async IO for BOSH connections
- OF-893: Fix mutual authentication for BOSH
- OF-869: Update Jetty to version 9.2
- OF-877: BOSH connector does not properly restart after configuration change
For those of you that track our progress on Github, we are starting a new approach for development going forward. An Openfire 3.10 branch has been created and the hope is that we will not have feature creep in this branch, but instead focus on stability and be able to make point releases when the situation warrants. In the past, Openfire's point releases (ie 3.9.0 to 3.9.1) was a mixture of bug fixes and new features. The new features will appear in other branches with an eye toward a future 3.11 or 4.0 release! We are always looking for more folks to help develop Openfire, so please send us those pull requests and stop by our XMPP MUC room firstname.lastname@example.org to say hi.
So please test this RC and report issues you find in the Openfire Support Forum. Do not report issues by commenting on this blog post please!
