JSXC web client now available as a plugin for Openfire!

The Ignite Realtime community is happy to announce the immediate availability of a new plugin for Openfire that makes available the JSXC web client to your users!

JSXC is a feature rich web client, which, among others, supports video calls and screen sharing. For more information on its features and usage, please visit its project web page at https://www.jsxc.org

Much like the inVerse and Candy plugins for Openfire, the new JSXC plugin installs a pre-configured version of JSXC in an embedded web server that is ready for use out-of-the-box. Install the plugin, and point your users at the URL where the webclient is available (by default: https://<your-server-name>:7443/jsxc/) and they?re ready to go!

Your instance of Openfire should automatically display the availability of the new plugin in the next few hours. Alternatively, you can download the the plugin directly from the JSXC plugin archive page.

As always, we?d love your feedback on our work! Stop by our support groupchat to get in touch, or leave a message on our community site.

jXMPP and MiniDNS 1.0.0 released

We are happy to announce the availability of the 1.0.0 releases of jXMPP and MiniDNS. Release artifacts are now available on Maven Central.

jXMPP

jXMPP is a XMPP base library that provides common functionality required by all kinds of XMPP implementations (servers, clients, components, ?). One if its gems in jxmpp-jid, which contains types for JIDs and comprehensive API for them. Remember the second commandment of XMPP development:

?) Never shall thou use a String type to represents JIDs.

Check out the javadoc at http://jxmpp.org/releases/1.0.0/javadoc/

MiniDNS

MiniDNS is a DNS library for Android and Java SE. Initially developed to bring native DNSSEC and DANE support to the Java ecosystem, including Android, it is now on the way to becoming a comprehensive DNS library, besides just a resolver library. Of course, it still can be used to perform DNS SRV resource records lookups, as it is common in XMPP. And for DANE verification (which we hope to become commonplace on day).

Smack 4.4.0-alpha5 released

The Ignite Realtime community is pleased to announce the release of Smack 4.4.0-alpha5.

We decided for another alpha release after some minor issues have been found with the last release. Fixes for all found issues are now in 4.4.0-alpha5, and we additionally improved the DNS server lookup mechanism on Android (although, this is an improvement within minidns-android21, not Smack itself, to be precise).

If no major blockers are found, then we will in around 4 weeks create the ?4.4? branch in Smack?s git repository and prepare the first beta release. If there is a feature or API change you like to see in Smack 4.4, then you should use that merge window to get your changes into Smack.

More information about Smack 4.4 can be found in the release?s README.

Happy hacking!
