Hi folk! Attached is the IM Gateway plugin version 1.1.0 Beta. I’‘ll get it put up on the beta plugins page whenever I can, but I’'m not having luck catching up with the Jive folk. =) To install this, just copy it into your openfire plugins directory and let the server auto-extract it. … In theory. Let me cut a moment here and explain what I mean by that.
For some reason there’'s been a lot of instances of the auto-update causing problems. This -appears- to have something to do with the plugin not having time to shut down entirely before the new one is extracted. If you experience problems with none of the transports being available or something like that after the upgrade, remove gateway.jar entirely. Wait for the gateway directory to be removed automatically. Then copy the new gateway.jar into place again.
Anyway, this biggest change with 1.1.0 is MUC/Groupchat support (for IRC only at the moment). I’‘ve also migrated to openymsg so Yahoo support is back on track to hopefully head to stable soon. There’‘s a slew of other improvements, but they are outlined in the change log. I’‘m putting out this beta first for a couple of reasons. I want to hear what issues folk run into with the MUC support and with the Yahoo support. I can’‘t duplicate a lot of problems people have run into with Yahoo so my only way of tracking down if things are fixed is to have y’'all try it. =) So please give it a shot and let me know what you run into!
BTW, the transports that are currently labeled as stable haven’'t undergone many changes. Mostly bug fixes.
