The Ignite Realtime community has just released Spark 2.7.7 and it can be downloaded from Ignite Realtime: Downloads .
This is another minor release marking exactly one year since Spark project reboot (yeah, we also like to have Anniversary Update ). There are a few small fixes and updates in this release (as a regression with Idle presence, fix for OTR plugin, etc.). I want to use this chance to look back at the last year. Spark had 7 more releases since the 2.7.0 during that time. 100 tickets have been resolved. Some old patches have been applied (laying around in the forums and the tracker for years). We have also received new patches from around 10 new contributors. Which is great! We see that Spark project is often forked on GitHub, so we hope more developers will forward their patches and new features to the main project. There is also an official Wikipedia page for Spark now (and additional 6 languages linked to it) in hope to increase awareness of this project.
Here are the contributors to this release (besides myself):
