Yesterday's release of Openfire 3.9.0 had some problems with packaging of the release.  Bouncycastle signed jar files were getting packed, which then caused problems when Openfire attempted to load them.  We have hopefully fixed this issue and cleaned up a few other details and are proud to announce a 3.9.1 release!

 

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.

 

The download page offers these files and here are their md5sums for your comparison.

Greetings,

 

The Igniterealtime servers reside at Contegix ( http://www.contegix.com/ ) thanks to the generous support of Jive Software (http://www.jivesoftware.com ). Between 3-7 UTC on 21 July 2013, the servers will be offline to allow them to be physically moved to a new facility.  The actual downtime may be shorter or longer than that period.  Please comment on this post if you see degraded services after that period.

 

thanks,

daryl

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.

The ignite realtime community would like to announce the final release of Spark 2.6.0.

 

After more than 3 years, we have moved the product quite a bit and it has to be noted that the contributions came from all over the world to make this release possible. Numerous issues and feature requests were adressed duringt the development phase:

  • Removal of commercial libraries
  • Move to Apache 2.0 license
  • Introduction of different skins
  • Small enhancements of the interface
  • Support of a privacy/invisible mode
  • Enhancements of the conference room features
  • Ability to set default data in ini files for corporate customizing (requires repacking)
  • New Smack (version 3.2) library
  • Reworked reconnection mechanisms
  • Nummerous technical enhancements

 

More details can be found in the attached changelog.html

 

The download links for the release 2.6.0 are on the Downloads page.

 

Further development

 

The next release 2.6.1 will follow within the next 8 weeks and include some more graphical and functional enhancements. We would appreciate contributions to the source code.

 

Known Issues

  • Missing Phone button. Resolution: This is caused by a missing STUN server to help the start of the phone connection. If you want to use this feauture you can activate it in Openfire and add the property "stunFallbackHost" to the file spark.properties. You can add your Openfire server or some external stun server like "stun.xten.net" which used to be a hard coded default in Spark.
  • File transfer does not work. Resolution: Use a nightly or wait until 2.6.1 is released.
  • Mac Version: Look and Feel is not native. Resolution: Use the Preference Menue to Switch Appreance to "Max OS X". This resolved this issue. There will be a hot fix release for Maac to adress this issue.
  • Mac Version: Sound does not work. Resolution: Make sure that Spark is executed in 32 bit mode.

Smack 3.2.0 Released!

Posted by Daryl Herzmann Champion May 5, 2011

On behalf of Robin Collier

 

Smack 3.2 has been released on May 5, 2011.

 

It has been well over 2 years since the last release, but much work has been done to fix bugs and add new features.

 

That includes new support for

  • Addition of pubsub (XEP-0060)
  • Addition of Attention (XEP-0224).
  • Fixes and improvements for over 40 issues

 

After a three month beta period, the long overdue next version is now available.

 

You can get it from the Downloads page.


The IgniteRealtime community would like to announce the second release candidate of Spark before the final 2.6.0 release.  Much more detail on this release and files for download can be found here:

 

http://community.igniterealtime.org/docs/DOC-2157

 

We will continue to work on Spark 2.6.0 for the next 4 weeks. The release date for 2.6.0 is tentatively set to April 30th, 2011.  Please test and provide feedback!

You probably have noticed many recent changes with Ignite Realtime! Thanks to the help of Benjamin Sherman of Jive Software, the entire suite of Ignite Realtime servers and infrastructure have been migrated to a Contegix hosted location external to Jive. This was done so that the community could take administrative control of Ignite Realtime and push projects forward as we wanted without relying on help from Jive Software.

So has Jive Software abandoned Ignite Realtime? No! They continue to generously fund the infrastructure and colocation costs at Contegix.  They also will participate with the community when appropriate. The community is now in tasked with moving projects forward!

 

So how will this work? At the moment, there is a handful of active community members that have been working hard to get the infrastructure setup. This infrastructure includes:

So who is running the show here? We currently do not have any formal community leadership process in place. The handful of us that are currently getting the infrastructure setup have been working together to make decisions to move Ignite Realtime forward.  With more community involvement and interest, we'll certainly wish to formalize roles and responsibilities soon.

 

So when will project X on Ignite make a new release? Depends Here is a brief summary of the various projects status:

  • Openfire is very close to a 3.7.0 beta release. Guus der Kinderen and others have been working hard to squash remaining bugs and get a formal beta release out the door.
  • Spark continues to struggle along and sure could use some developers to help get a formal release out the door. Please let us know if you are interested in helping out.
  • XIFF released version 3.0.0 just this week thanks to the work of Mark Walters. Congratulations on the new release!
  • Smack has seen recent development and could use more developers to help progress things along.
  • Tinder is developed by Guus and he continues to make improvements to the library projects like Openfire uses.
  • Spark Web has not seen development on Ignite for quite some time. Community member Dele Olajide has made a number of improvements to spark web on the version he maintains offsite.
  • Whack could use some development help, so please let us know if you are interested.

 

At the end of the day, the productivity of the Ignite Realtime Community depends on you! We have been given the power to push projects forward as fast as we wish, so let us take advantage of this wonderful infrastructure setup provided by Jive Software.

 

Onward and upward!
