IRC Issues in 1.1.0 Beta 3+

I’‘m not exactly sure what version I have now, so, 1.1.0 Beta 3+ sounds good. Today I’‘ve had this strange occurance where I part an IRC channel and then get disconnected from the IRC server. I don’‘t see any errors, but I do get an unavailable presence from everybody in the IRC channel/MUC (no role attribute, though). I also never get an unavailable presence from the MUC itself, but I don’‘t know if that’‘s normal or not. As such my client thinks I’'m still in the MUC/IRC channel.

It’‘s possible that this is a twofold issue. The IRC network (Freenode) might be disconnecting me for some reason, but I don’‘t see that since the gateway doesn’‘t pass on notices. But, on being disconnected, I’‘m not sure how gracefully it’‘s handling the disconnection anyway. I know this is still alpha/beta stuff, so I’‘m not complaining, just trying to help point out issues. I don’‘t see anything in the OpenFire logs pertaining to this, but I also don’‘t know what I should be looking for, so let me know if there’'s something I can look for there to help. Thanks!

Hey man, I believe I’‘ve fixed this in trunk. If you see me online tonight pop me a line and I’‘ll get you to try out an updated version. At the moment MUC support is a littttle one sided. I try to convert just about everything that comes from IRC into a MUC counterpart (some exceptions there that I haven’‘t gotten to, but overall lots has been done at this point), but I don’‘t handle a lot of incoming events just yet from the XMPP user. That’'ll come later though.

Daniel,

we have further tested MUC support using 1.1.0 Beta 3+ . The findings are in the same area as MysticOne already pointed out. Here are some infos for you:

  • one can join more than one IRC channel

  • when additional users join the chat room their presence is not noted and anything they type comes across as being typed by the initial user

I have also tried SIP/SIMPLE against MS LCS but did not get it to work. Maybe LCS does not use the SIP/SIMPLE standard.

Anyway thanks for the great plugin

This issue is actually fixed in trunk at the moment. =) Just need to get the memory issues worked out and I’'ll put out another release!

I have also tried SIP/SIMPLE against MS LCS but did not get it to work. Maybe LCS does not use the SIP/SIMPLE standard.

laugh Why does that not surprise me? We love you MS.

Daniel,
