Ignite Realtime is the community site for the users and developers of Jive Software's open source Real Time Communications projects. Your involvement is helping to change the open RTC landscape.
The Ignite Realtime developer community is happy to announce the availability of Smack 4.3.0.
This is the first release of the new Smack 4.3 series, which brings new features and bug fixes.
Compared to the API changes between Smack 4.1 and 4.2, the changes of the Smack 4.3 are far less intrusive. Remember that the 4.2 API changes where mostly caused by the introduction of the
Jid type, replacing
String which was previously used to represent a JID.
We like to thank everyone who contributed by reporting bugs or giving suggestions. A special thank goes to people who contributed code:

More information about the 4.3.0 release can be found one the release?s Readme.
Pàdé is a web browser extension for Openfire Meetings and currently only available from the Chrome Web Store. Other browser versions are coming soon.
Pàdé started life as chrome extension for screen sharing, but has grown into a Unified Communications desktop client application for Openfire that delivers chat, groupchat, meetings and telephone calls thanks to jitis-meet, converse.js and sip.js embedded in it.
If you use Chrome OS devices or a Chromium based web browser, then I suggest you take a look at Pàdé. Yes, it is still in development, but it does brings the best out of Openfire.
The Smack developer community is proud to announce the availability of the first release candidate of Smack 4.3. Users of Smack are encouraged switch to the new 4.3 release family of Smack. The Smack 4.3 API is considered frozen and the API changes between 4.2 and 4.3 are not as significant compared to the changes between Smack 4.1 and 4.2. More information can be found in the Readme of Smack 4.3 (please note that the Readme is work in progress).
Together with the 4.3.0-rc1 release, we have also published the first alpha of Smack 4.4, which includes the updated and improved OMEMO API. Credits for this go to Paul.
As always, all the release artifacts are available on Maven Central.
Smack 4.3.0-beta2 has been released. As always the release artifacts are available on Maven Central.
This release includes important fixes and improvements. The full list of resolved issues can be found in our issue tracker. We are aware that Smack 4.2 introduced some big but necessary API changes, hence you may be happy to hear that the changes between Smack 4.2. and 4.3 are much smaller. Users are encouraged to apply Smack 4.3.0-beta2 in the beta versions of their software.
It also marks an important milestone in Smack?s development cycle as the ?4.3? branch was created, meaning that there are no major API changes to be expected. We hope to end the beta period within the next weeks with the first release candidate for Smack 4.3. Until then, please use Smack?s community forums for feedback and suggestions.
A new project called WebMeet has been added to the Ignite Realtime Coumunity. It allows visitors to a web site to chat directly with members of a work group or team in a multi-user chat (MUC) through an integrated web client (converse.js). The web component can be customised and re-branded with HTML/CSS.
It embeds converse.js in the web site to handle the messaging with Openfire and depending on the configuration, it can open a browser tab for a video-conference using Openfire Meetings or a telephone conference call using FreeSWITCH Verto Communicator.

Feel free to customise it and use it to add Openfire powered communication to your web applications, local intranets and coporate web sites.
