We’ve just released version 1.1.0 of the Non-SASL Authentication plugin for Openfire! This release fixes a compatibility issue with Openfire 4.8.0.
The Non-SASL Authentication plugin provides an implementation for authentication with Jabber servers and services using the
jabber:iq:auth namespace, as specified in XEP-0078: Non-SASL Authentication.
Note Well: The protocol implemented by this plugin has been superseded in favor of SASL authentication as specified by the XMPP standards in RFC 3920 / RFC 6120, and is now obsolete. This plugin should not be installed in Openfire, unless there is a pressing need for backwards compatibility with regards to XEP-0078.
The update should be visible in the Plugins section of your Openfire admin console within the next few days. You can also download it from the plugin’s archive page .
