Hi folk!  Version 1.1.3 of the IM Gateway plugin is now available on the stable plugins page, and also for update via your Openfire server's own update mechanism.  However, I would like to recommend following this procedure to update the plugin:


1. Go into your server's plugins directory

2. Remove gateway.jar

3. Wait for the gateway subdir to vanish

4. Install the new gateway.jar (or install it via the admin console)


Why?  Well, there appears to be some 'timing' issue when upgrading the plugin that causes the previous version to not entirely be unloaded before the new one attempts to install.  This causes some craziness in the form of the old plugin still kinda sorta running but the new one can't be loaded and you typically see it in the form of "all of my transports went away".


Annnnyway, so the standard note about "see changelog for updates" but I wanted to highlight a couple of things about this version:


1. Contact list management should be drastically improved

2. Mail notifications are supported on all protocols I'm aware of that support them (and can be turned off via the admin console)

3. ICQ and Gadu-Gadu have been promoted to stable status


Enjoy!  Stable plugins page is: http://www.igniterealtime.org/projects/openfire/plugins.jsp
