I’‘m eager to take the evaluation of Wildfire+Spark as the internal IM of choise for my client even further, but there are issues currently hindering me from doing that. I’‘m referring just as much to Wildfire as to Spark. I don’'t know which one to blame most
(note: we’'re dependant on authentication, shared rosters and vcards all[/i] being provided from LDAP/AD)
I’‘m not sure whether this is because of the client(-s) or the server, but often auto-away’'d contacts seem to flap between away/available.
Also associated to presence - I’'ve seen people go online but their presence is not pushed to other users already online. (The new user on the other hand can see everyone else). Very demotivating for my test users
Reliable file transfers:[/b]
I’‘ve seen other people requesting a feature to disable file transfers. This is no problem for us - because since upgrading from 2.4.4 to 2.5.0 file transfers Spark->Spark won’‘t work at all[/i]! We need[/i] reliable transfers accross firewalls - it’'s even more grave a show-stopper than the “online but not present” problem.

Stuff like http://www.jivesoftware.org/community/message.jspa?messageID=113735 is just so 90’'s[/i].
Which are your[/i] “stoppers”?
