Openfire restAPI plugin version 1.11.0 release

Earlier today, version 1.11.0 of the REST API plugin for Openfire was released!

The REST API Plugin provides the ability to manage Openfire (the real-time communications server created by the Ignite Realtime community) by sending an REST/HTTP request to the server. This plugin’s functionality is useful for applications that need to administer Openfire outside of the Openfire admin console.

This release mainly addresses compatibility issues with Openfire versions 4.8.0 and later. A big thank you to community member Anckermann for providing the bulk of the fixes!

The updated plugin should become available for download in your Openfire admin console in the course of the next few hours. Alternatively, you can download the plugin directly, from the plugin’s archive page

New Openfire plugin: XMPP Web!

We are excited to be able to announce the immediate availability of a new plugin for Openfire: XMPP Web!

This new plugin for the real-time communications server provided by the Ignite Realtime community allows you to install the third-party webclient named ‘XMPP Web’ in mere seconds! By installing this new plugin, the web client is immediately ready for use.

This new plugin compliments others that similarly allow to deploy a web client with great ease, like Candy, inVerse and JSXC! With the addition of XMPP Web, the selection of easy-to-install clients for your users to use becomes even larger!

The XMPP Web plugin for Openfire is based on release 0.10.2 of the upstream project, which currently is the latest release. It will automatically become available for installation in the admin console of your Openfire server in the next few days. Alternatively, you can download it immediately from its archive page.

Do you think this is a good addition to the suite of plugins? Do you have any questions or concerns? Do you just want to say hi? Please stop by our community forum or our live groupchat!
