Openfire 4.6.8 Release

The Ignite Realtime Community is happy to announce the 4.6.8 release of Openfire!

We have made available a new release of this older version to addresses the issue that is subject of security advisory CVE-2023-32315.

We are aware that for some, the process of deploying a new major version of Openfire is not a trivial matter, as it may encompass a lot more than only performing the update of the executables. Depending on regulations that are in place, this process can require a lot of effort and take a long time to complete. To facilitate users that currently use an older version of Openfire, we are also making available this new release in the older 4.6 branch of Openfire. An upgrade to this version will, for some, require a lot less effort. Note well: although we are making available a new version in the 4.6 branch of Openfire, we strongly recommend that you upgrade to the latest version of Openfire (currently in the 4.7 branch), as that includes important fixes and improvements that are not available in 4.6.
