We use the broadcast plugin with Openfire 3.6.0a. If a user adds the broadcast address manually, this JID in the roster has a presence state. But presence information is absent, if broadcast JID has been added to the user roster via Admin Console.
P.S. I also made translation into Russian for “Admin Console” (setup and clearspace sections is not translated yet), Search and Monitoring plugins. Who can I send files with the translation?
