The Ignite Realtime Community is proud to announce the 4.1.5 release of Openfire. This release signifies our continuing effort to produce stable 4.1 series releases while work continues on the next major release. A changelog denoting 18 resolved issues is available and you can download the release builds from our website. There was one change that we decided not to ship with this release. Work was done to produce 64bit windows installers, but complications exist when you attempt to upgrade previously installed 32bit versions. We hope to iron out those issues prior to releasing 4.1.6 or even 4.2.0, depending on which comes first If testing this functionality interests you, please stop by our chatroom and let us know!
Important to know: Openfire now automatically installs the service. On the last step of the installer you will have an option whether to start it or not (it will also open the browser pointing to Admin Console, if you chose to start it). You shouldn’t run the launcher, if the service is started. Documentation is updated accordingly. **If you already have older service running, stop it before upgrading. **
