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.
Thanks to the sponsorship of Marc Laporte and the effort of Guus der Kinderen, we have improved the documentation of Openfire Meetings. There is still a lot more work to be done, but we are making good progress. You can find it here. Please have a read if you use this Openfire plugin. The latest version of the plugin can be found here.
The Ignite Realtime Community is pleased to announce the 4.0.2 release of Openfire. This release signifies our ongoing effort to produce a stable 4.0 series release while continuing to work toward a 4.1 release. A changelog of issues fixed indicates 9 issues resolved with hopefully the issue of stale/ghost client sessions being resolved.
As a reminder, Openfire's source code and development can be found on Github and an active developer discussion occurs within our email@example.com groupchat. Please consider helping out with Openfire's development!
We've had quite some feedback from our recent 4.0.0 release. As is to be expected in a release that has many changes, some issues sneaked in. To address most of them, we released Openfire 4.0.1 today.
This release contains various changes, but most importantly fixes problems introduced in 4.0.0 related to LDAP and certificate store management. The complete changelog is available here: Openfire Changelog

Almost 4 weeks ago, we released a beta of Openfire 4.0.0. Now, it's time for the real thing.
Openfire 4.0.0 is now available for immediate download. The Beta has been run in production by developers for some time, and we believe this is the best ever Openfire release, containing many new features and fixing dozens of bugs. It marks the culmination of a real resurgence in Openfire development.
We advise all users to plan on upgrading; the 3.10 branch will not be receiving anything other than critical fixes. The new 4.0 branch will be the focus for bug fixes, and the trunk is now 4.1.
Many of the plugins available from Ignite Realtime: Openfire Plugins will only work on 4.0.0, and will therefore require this upgrade.

Wouldn't it be great if your favourite XMPP Server was almost about to make a major release? Well, stop imagining, and start downloading, because Openfire 4.0.0 has reached Beta status!
This means that while we're quite sure there's bugs to be found, we believe the server is stable enough to use for formal testing and careful use in non-critical production environments (which means, basically, we're using it on igniterealtime.org itself and our own servers).
So if you're keen to help make this the best Openfire release we've ever made, then download, install, and keep us posted in the chatroom at firstname.lastname@example.org
