Ohn - A new Openfire plugin for voice chat

The Ignite Realtime community is happy to announce the availability of Ohn, a new plugin for Openfire.

Ohn is the Yoruba word for voice and is a simple audio conferencing solution for Openfire using the Kraken WebRTC client and server.

It is for remote teams who can use it everyday to communicate and collaborate all day long without the need to show their faces or any other video. With the absence of video, it ensures high quality audio for the conversation most of the time, even with more than 10 participants.

If you are a remote worker, tired of daily video conference meetings and wish to experience some of the spontaneous discussions with colleagues and team members just listening to each other while working on the same project, then give Ohn a test and let me know what you think. You call mute yourself, selectively mute noisy peers or even mute everyone when you are busy.

Openfire Monitoring plugin version 2.1.0 has been released

The Ignite Realtime community is happy to announce that version 2.1.0 of the Monitoring plugin has been released!

This release is mainly a bugfix release. Message archiving functionality has been improved (fixes have been applied for both XEP-0136 and XEP-0313), full text search has been added to the personal message archives of users, and a variety of smaller bug fixes have been applied.

In this release, the feature of retrieving messages ?out of order? has been removed.

The new version of the plugin will become available for installation in the admin console of your instance of Openfire in the next few hours. Alternatively, it can be downloaded from its archive page right now.

Note that for instances that have a lot of archived messages in their database, the initial load of this plugin might require a significant amount of time, as some database updates will be executed. For reference: it took our test instance, that has approximately 11 million archived messages in an external database approximately 9 minutes to perform this update.

New Openfire plugin to help reduce spam!

The Openfire community is happy to announce the immediate availability of a new plugin: the blacklist spam plugin.

With the growing popularity of XMPP-based solutions, we?re also seeing an increase of a less desirable application of XMPP: the distribution of unsolicited messages over instant messaging (SPAM, or SPIM).

In order to help our Openfire community combat known spam, we have now released a new plugin the ?Spam blacklist? plugin. This is configured with a URL that is used to lookup addresses of known SPAM distributors and block all messages sent by these addresses.

By default, the plugin is configured to read from a blacklist that is hosted on the igniterealtime.org website, and block all messages sent by any user on a domain listed there. The blacklist hosted by the Ignite Realtime community is a periodically updated copy of the list that is curated by the https://github.com/JabberSPAM/blacklist project. You can help combat spam by contributing to that project!

In the next few hours, the plugin will pop up in the list of available plugins on all Openfire instances. Alternatively, you can manually download and install the plugin from its archive page.
