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.
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 email@example.com

The Ignite Realtime Community is pleased to announce the release of version 3.10.3 of Openfire. This release continues our effort to produce a stable 3.10 release series of Openfire while we work toward the next major release of Openfire. The release is available now for download from our website.
Here are SHA-1 hashes for the download artifacts
Please note that we are no longer producing a Solaris build, due to perceived lack of interest and some strange with our Bamboo build agent. If you would like to help out with creating a Solaris build, please respond in the .
As a reminder, Openfire is developed by a group of volunteers and are always looking for more developers and testers to pitch in. Please stop by our XMPP chatroom firstname.lastname@example.org at any time and say if you are interested in helping out!
The Ignite Realtime community is very proud to release Openfire 3.10.0 for general availability from http://www.igniterealtime.org/downloads/
The amount of energy that has gone into this release is truly impressive, and it shows no signs of slowing down - as those of your looking at the 3.11 branch will have seen. Further 3.10.X releases will be bugfix releases; 3.11 will concentrate on a path to 4.0.0.
3.10.0 itself brings new core features to Openfire (such as Message Carbons, for example, by Christian Schudt) and vital improvements (to clustering and MUC, for example, by Tom Evans), as well as some hard bugfixing (by Guus der Kinderen) and important security improvements.
As ever, we welcome pull requests (to 3.10 or master as appropriate), and the entire development team is looking forward to you joining the conversation either in the forums or in the XMPP chatroom at email@example.com
UPDATE: Spark 2.6.3 version has issues with connecting to this version of Openfire. We suggest updating to just released 2.7.0 version of Spark.
UPDATE 2: Openfire 3.10.1 has been released recently, which is again compatible with Spark 2.6.3 when using TLS (thanks to this fix [OF-907] SSLv2 Hello is rejected; prevents some clients connecting - Jive Software Open Source )
