I’ve worked the past weeks on upgrading Smack, the XMPP library used by Spark, to the latest release. The results can be found in the smack-4.3 branch of my Spark github repository. It is still a little bit rough here and there but at least the most basic things appear to work. We need now a few more testers. If you are interested, you can simply run Spark from sources issuing the following commands:
git clone https://github.com/Flowdalic/Spark.git cd Spark/core git checkout smack-4.3 mvn exec:java
Your input is highly appreciated. Please use Spark with Smack 4.3 to give feedback.
UPDATE: Smack 4.3 is merged to Spark source, so now one can give it a test with nightly builds.
