After some months away, I am back.
I am writing this post to let you know that I should restart to work on Asterisk-IM in the next days. I had some problems with my server that obliged me to start from scratch, and this is one of the reasons (among others) of this huge delay.
Anyway, my initial idea was to work hard on the code to make it fully compliant with XMPP and Asterisk, but it will take some time, so I will first focus on releasing a version compatible with latest Openfire version and Asterisk 14 (I will probably test it on Asterisk 15 too). So, just after the release, I will need some help to test with Asterisk 13 and older versions if possible.
After the "first release" became stable, I want to look carefully at each XMPP message sent by and each Asterisk method used in the plugin, to guarantee that it respects the XEPs and that the Asterisk methods/events used are still supported. Also, I want to look for better methods/events on Asterisk AMI to make it more efficient and I will look for new features that I could add to the plugin.
