dear staff and developers,
it is frustrating to read through all the (outdated) threads, collect the various patches, apply them correctly, mess around with as3crypto and still not be able to connect to Google Talk or other servers requiring TLS.
please, start to merge the patches into svn head. then we will be able to test things properly and support not-so-hardcore as3 developers in this forum. let us work together to make your release of XIFF 3.0.0 a success - including proper support for TLS on all major xmpp server implementations including Google Talk.
in addition, i’m working on an extension of XMPPConnection that utilizes SecureSocket (http://help.adobe.com/en_US/FlashPlatform/beta/reference/actionscript/3/flash/ne t/SecureSocket.html) of AIR 2.0 which is going to be released soon as a part of Adobe CS5. i’m willing to contribute this class but it still needs lots of testing.
my suggestion of next steps to take:
contact authors of the patches, agree on contribution
merge patches into svn head
write a tutorial on how to get XIFF running with TLS/Google Talk (including a how-to patch and compile as3crypto)
release another beta of XIFF
start testing, include feedback
progress and continue
thank you very much - i’m looking forward to your comments!
