Openfire 3.8.2 has been released

The Ignite Realtime community is happy to announce the release of version 3.8.2 of Openfire! Downloads for various platforms are available here.

Openfire is a real time collaboration (RTC) server licensed under the Open Source Apache license. It uses the only widely adopted open protocol for instant messaging, XMPP (also called Jabber). Openfire is incredibly easy to setup and administer, but offers rock-solid security and performance.

This release adds BOSH functionality for setting CORS headers and improves Pub-Sub support. There is also a new Atlassian Crowd provider! Various stability improvements were made as well. The changelog lists these and other changes in more detail.

As always, we welcome your feedback, suggestions, tips, hints, questions and other contributions in the Ignite Realtime Community pages.


Excellent! Thank you guys for the your dedication and hard work.

Wow. You got me by surprise Will try at once.

Why just a i386 rpm? Could you release a rpm for 64bit. If install i386rpm in 64bitOS, jre is not available.

what about:

anybody got the chance to review the patch?

This is marked for Openfire 3.8.2 and now I see 3.8.2 released but this ticket is still in unresolved state



thanks for good work

i hope add :

Thanks !

The only ‘32bit’ part of the Openfire release is the JRE - You can just update the JAVA_HOME variable in the scripts to use a 64bit JRE you have installed on the system.

Hi, Guus had previously indicated to me that he was thinking about including OF-477 prior to the release of 3.8.2, but time did not permit it. I think there is some nervousness of this patch breaking other things, but it probably would not. We don’t have automated tests for all the various XMPP clients out there.

I am new to this software, but several users recommended it. I just downloaded and installed on a Windows 2012 server and setup LDAP. The settings seem to work, but when I log in every screen comes up with HTTP ERROR 500 Problem accessing/***_jsp.reason: Server Error. java.lang.NullPointerException.

Does this software run on Windows 2012?

I don’t remember anyone reporting about running Openfire on Windows 2012, so you may be the first tester. Report yourissues in the forums.

Thanks everyone, I upgraded last night with no issues to report!!!

We need a Spark update please. Sometimes it doesn’t open up properly from the task bar or shortcut on the desktop and have to use the icon in the systray.

Thanks guys …great work

But what about OF-455 !!

It is not even marked when to be fixed…

Any word on that?

There is no patch for this issue, only a suggestion which is not tested or confirmed.

I replace the exiting jdk folder with 64bit jdk I download, and it running OK now. I think that it is available, isn’t it? Thank you.

I have been running into a LOT of stability issues after the update; I have reverted to 3.8.1 as a result.

I think it’s related to the archiving plugin and the max days old.

Some issues:

Server stops accepting logins (stuck at Authenticating).

100% cpu usage by server.

Java uses 100% available memory, then openfire crashes.

We have 120+ users on the system so the log files are quite extensive, and archive history going back 2 years.

Hi Biny, might have to fiddle with your Xms, Xmx, etc. values as per: fire-3-7-0-tar-gz-package/

Depending upon your setup (Windows, Debian Linux, Redhat) your Java exec args for Openfire will be in a different place.
