No help on this then? Oh well…
I know it has lost any financial motivation to keep the project up and running, and I definitely lack the history with the project to obtain a clear perspective on the situation at large, but it sure does seem that Openfire has quickly began to take a turn for the worse following the decision to go OpenSource.
I would much rather they not offer plugins, or release them as beta’s, or do something that gives end users a fair warning as to their unstable nature. As it stands I may try to implement a fastpath solution and just leave it alone (assuming I can get lucky enough to get it up and running as needed as I have ran into a few other bugs that are quite bothersome). I don’t like to critique free projects as I have paid nothing and thus desrve nothing back, but I’m now out a good bit of time as I first figured they had done a port of their enterprise plugin that was spot on, not some buggy bit of after thought.
Anyway, maybe I’m just grumpy and out of line, But one thing is for certain, this whole excercise has me seriously considering another route for a Live Support implementation as well as an ejabbered xmpp server migration.
