After I performed a release of an Openfire plugin yesterday, @akrherz apparently had a ‘hold-my-beer’ moment, and apparently went through all of our plugins source repositories, creating maintenance releases for pretty much every one of them that had outstanding changes.
As I do not believe we’re doing anyone a favor with 16 individual blog posts, I have combined all release notifications in this one.
Most of these changes are minor: many of them add no functional change, but were needed to keep our build systems happy. Various plugins have new translations, provided by various community members (through the translation service provided by Transifex). Thank you!
The list of changes contains 18 plugins, 16 of which were updated, while 2 were archived. Here goes!
Version 1.8.0 of the Registration plugin was released. The registration plugin allows admins to configure various actions whenever a new user creates an account. In this release, the reCaptcha implementation was replaced with Google’s reCAPTCHA v3 and various smaller improvements have been applied.
Version 1.0.1 of the MUC Service Discovery Extensions plugin was released. This plugin for Openfire allows an admin to configure Extended Service Discovery information to Multi User Chat entities (chat rooms).

This release was a maintenance release, in which a testing dependency was updated.

Conversely, when the plugin is set to reject subscription requests users will not be able to add people to their roster. This is a minor maintenance release that does not introduce functionality changes.

We have archived the Openfire NodeJS plugin, as development of that plugin stalled, and the bundled version of NodeJS is outdated. This plugin should no longer be used.
We have archived the Openfire MUC Service plugin. This plugin was replaced long ago with the REST API plugin. Please use that instead.
