The Ignite Realtime Community is pleased to announce the 4.0.3 release of Openfire. Openfire is a cross-platform real-time collaboration server based on the XMPP (Jabber) protocol. This release signifies our ongoing effort to produce a stable 4.0 series release while continuing to work toward a 4.1 release. A changelog of fixes is available and indicates 14 issues resolved.
Note: There was an unfortunate and complicated problem with the distributed 4.0.2 .deb Openfire installer. If you had troubles with it and reverted to 4.0.1, we hope that you try 4.0.3 now. See OF-1116 for some more details. Also, if you are an experienced Debian/Ubuntu packager, we would certainly love your feedback on how the .deb package for Openfire is generated and distributed.
Additionally, this update contains an updated truststore. This truststore is used by Openfire to secure remote connections. If you are using an installer and have manually updated this file in the past, it is likely that the installer will not overwrite your changes with the new truststore. Please review your resources/security directory after install and rectify differences you may find.
As always, please report issues in the Community Forums and you can download this release from our website. Here are the sha1sum’s for the downloads available.

**Update 19 August 2016: **A problem was found with the 32bit RPM containing a 64 bit JRE. This artifact has been refreshed on the website for download. Also Binary (tar.gz) package has been replaced to include the usual binaries.
As a reminder, Openfire’s source code and development can be found on Github and an active developer discussion occurs within our firstname.lastname@example.org groupchat. Please consider helping out with Openfire’s development! We can use help in about all areas of development, but especially:
- experienced packaging developers to improve the install/upgrade experience on various platforms
- developers interested in transitioning Openfire to Maven
- testing of bamboo generated builds
Thank you for your interest in Openfire!
