More Openfire plugin maintenance releases!

Following the initial batch of Openfire plugin releases that we did last week, another few have been made available!

Version 1.0.1 of the Spam Blacklist plugin was released. This plugin uses an external blocklist to reject traffic from specific addresses. This is a minor maintenance release that does not introduce functionality changes.

Version 1.0.0 of the EXI plugin was released. Efficient XML Interchange (EXI) is a binary XML format for exchange of data on a computer network. It is one of the most prominent efforts to encode XML documents in a binary data format, rather than plain text. Using EXI format reduces the verbosity of XML documents as well as the cost of parsing. Improvements in the performance of writing (generating) content depends on the speed of the medium being written to, the methods and quality of actual implementations. After our request for comments on this prototype, no major defects were reported. As such, we’ve decided to publish a proper release of the plugin!

Version 1.0.4 of the Email on Away plugin was released. This plugin allows to forward messages to user’s email address when the user is away (not offline). In this release, the build process was fixed. No functional changes were introduced.

Version 1.0.0 of the Push Notification plugin was released. This plugin adds support sending push notifications to client software, as described in XEP-0357: “Push Notifications”. In this release, compatibility with Openfire 4.8 was implemented.

Version 0.0.3 of the Ohùn plugin was released. This plugin implements a simple audio conferencing solution for Openfire using the Kraken WebRTC client and server. No functional changes were introduced in this release.

Version 0.0.3 of the Gitea plugin was released. This Openfire plugin adds a real-time communication to content management using a familiar GIT based workflow to create a very responsive collaboration platform that will enable an agile team to create, manage and deliver any type of content with quality assurance. IN this release, the gitea dependency was updated to 1.7.3.

Version 1.3.0 of the User Status plugin was released. This plugin automatically saves the last status (presence, IP address, logon and logoff time) per user and resource to userStatus table in the Openfire database. In this release, compatibility with Openfire 4.8 was implemented.

All of these plugins should show up in your Openfire admin console in the next few hours. You can also download them directly from their archive pages, which is linked to in the text above.
