Search plugin bug: wrong category in XMPP

There is a thread about the discovery of the “search” (directory) feature for XMPP on Pidgin’'s mailing list. (Website is down at the moment because of the slashdot-effect)

It looks like the search plugin is sending the wrong information back to Pidgin:

jabber: Recv (ssl)(268):

According to, there is no “search” category for discovery:

I know that Exodus and other clients correctly identify the search server, but Pidgin/Gaim does not.

This applies to Wildfire 3.1.1. I’'m not sure if this is already fix in Openfire 3.3.0.

is this a known issue?

Hi lemsx1,

The “search/text” issue was fixed with version 1.3.2 of the seach pluign.



Thanks a lot.

Now, I noticed that the new version of the search plugin applies to Openfire 3.3.0 and not older versions. Where can I get the 1.3.2 version of the plugin for Wildfire 3.1.1 ?

I’‘ll be upgrading to Openfire next week or so. But that requires some planning. For the meantime, since Pidgin is already deployed here, I’'d like to just get the search thing fixed.

Thanks again for your help.
