Ignite Realtime Issue Tracker Migration to Atlassian Cloud

The Ignite Realtime community has been happily using tools provided by Atlassian over the years thanks to their generous no-cost licensing to Open Source development projects like ours. These tools include issue tracking by Jira, user management by Crowd, and continuous integration by Bamboo. These tools run within our AWS Cloud presence kindly supported by Surevine. You may be aware the Atlassian recently announced a move to discontinue self-hosted Jira installs in favor of their Jira Cloud offering. Generously, they are making this service free for projects like us to use.

So we have migrated our Jira instance to the Atlassian Cloud and you can now find our issue tracker at Our previous URL will automatically redirect to this cloud website and thankfully, previous URLs referenced in various places will continue to function.

If you have any issues accessing Jira, please chime in here or direct message me via this very online forum. Thanks again to Atlassian for offering this valuable service to the Open Source Community.

Openfire 4.6.0 is released

The Ignite Realtime Community is elated to be able to announce the release of Openfire version 4.6.0!

This release is the first non-patch release in 10 months, which brings a healthy amount of new features, as well as bug fixes.

I?d like to explicitly thank the many people in the community that have supported this release: not only were a significant amount of code contributions provided, the feedback that we get in our chatroom and on our community forums is of great value to us!

Highlights of this release include extensively improved XMPP protocol support, particularly around Pubsub and PEP and better compatibility with higher-end encryption parameters out-of-the-box, which should particularly benefit environments that make heavy use of server-to-server federation.

This release includes experimental support for federated multi-user chat for constrained environments (as defined in XEP-0289). This feature aims to reduce the dependency on highly reliable, high volume network connectivity.

The complete changelog contains approximately 80 issues that have been resolved in this release.

We invite you to give this release a try. The process of upgrading from an earlier version is as lightweight as ever. It is outlined in the Openfire upgrade guide. Please note that, if desired, a significant amount of professional partners is available that can provide commercial support for upgrading, customization, or other services.

We?re always happy to hear about your experiences, good or bad! Please consider dropping a note in the community forums or hang out with us in our web support groupchat.

You can find Openfire release artifacts on the download page. These are the the applicable sha1sums:

Thank you for using Openfire!
