Seasonal Greetings

Dear Community!

Another year has passed for this open source project and various developers have contributed significantly to nearly all of our projects. We were able to finally release Openfire 3.7 and Spark 2.6.3 under Apache 2.0 license. The most important Smack library has also seen several releases and last but not least the good old instant messaging gateway Kraken returned to us. Some great innovations were presented like SparkWeb/Redfire, Websocks and Candy. I really would like to thank all developers involved by contributing code and all users and system admins that went through this year. A very special thank you goes to Daryl Herzmann who keeps the servers healthy and Wroot for outstanding work in the forum. I would also like to single out Guus der Kinderen for his insights in Openfire architecture and the release of Openfire 3.7.

Merry Christmas to all of you and a happy, healthy and sucessful 2012

Merry Christmas to the entire ignite community!

I think we had a pretty good 2011 with all the releases across the various projects, and hopefully 2012 will be even better. As Walter has already thanked everyone else, I will thank him and his team fro their continued efforts on Spark. I know they have also been making a lot of contributions to Smack as well, and I am greateful for those efforts in particular.

Enjoy your holidays and have a great new year everyone.
