Openfire 4.3.0 Release

The Ignite Realtime Community is thrilled to announce the promotion of release version 4.3.0 of Openfire. A changelog denotes 130 Jira issues resolved with this release! There are a few gotchas / unresolved issues we would like to inform you of.

  • OF-1615 Openfire Preference Pane crashes on MacOS.
    If you are a Mac user and try to start Openfire via ?Start Openfire?, it will fail. We are very much desperate for MacOS developers to help us figure out how to fix it.
  • OF-1647 Upgraded Openfire on Windows sometimes fails to start.
    Some users have been able to reproduce a bug that an upgraded Openfire to 4.3.0 release will fail to properly start. The workaround is to locate the plugins/admin/webapp/WEB-INF/lib, delete it, then start Openfire again.
  • OF-1432 meaning of property xmpp.pubsub.create.anyone is inverted.
    The release of Openfire 4.3.0 corrected the behavior of having that property set. Setting it now to true means that anybody can create pubsub nodes.
  • OF-1594 bookmarks are unexpectedly copied to other users.
    It is not clear this bug actually exists, but we wanted to make you aware of it as the Ignite Realtime Openfire host routinely reproduces the issue, but nobody else has :). The impact is that sometimes logged in users are given other users bookmarks. This will cause them to perhaps auto-join rooms with that user?s handle. We hope that this issue is some one-off that is only due to our usage of Ignite Realtime for testing development releases!
  • OF-1383 Support Java 11. (this ticket is not completed, there is no support for Java 10/11 yet, read more below)
    Openfire currently requires Java 8 to properly run. We are hoping to support newer JVMs, but need things like upstream releases of Apache MINA to happen.

Have the above issues scared you off yet from trying this release? We certainly hope not! We always recommend you have tested backups and a testing environment to see how this release works for you.

The release can be downloaded from our Downloads Page and the artifacts have the following sha1sums.

A special recognition for this release goes to @guus and @gdt who did a tremendous amount of work in the area of Maven migration and improving how Openfire plugin development happens. Please remember that we are all volunteers here and very much looking for others to help develop, document, and test Openfire. Please stop by our open_chat to say ?Hi? if you are interested in learning more!

Openfire 4.3.0 Beta Release

The Ignite Realtime Community is happy to announce the availability of Openfire 4.3.0 Beta. The changelog contains an extensive list of enhancements and bugs fixed for this release. We hope you are able to test this release and let us know in the Openfire Dev Forum your findings. We hope to turn around a full 4.3.0 release within a few weeks after community testing.

You can download the release from our Beta Downloads page. Please note that the MacOS-X dmg distribution has a bug where the preference pane will crash. The crash has us baffled and could use interested OS-X folks chipping in to fix it.

Pd 0.8.0 released

The Ignite Realtime community is pleased to announce the availability of Pd version 0.8.0. For details of this release, please see the changelog.

This release makes Pd much easier to deploy in corporate environments with many users by supporting group policy deployment and adding auto-configuration to auto-sign. For more details see this issue and this issue.

For Window users, single sign-on can be enabled to use the WAFFLE - Windows Authentication Framework. For a non Windows O/S, the Credential Management API can be enabled instead.

Best practice would be to build your version from source, customize it with the features your users need and deploy to web store with your own branding. Otherwise, you can use the stock Pade@Work and Pade@Home versions from web store.
