I'm happy to announce the release of version 1.2.0 of Tinder. This new version brings interesting new features, a number of bugs fixes and general performance improvement.


Recently, I published a document describing a problem that I dubbed Openfires Achilles' heel. Tinder 1.2 introduces the AbstractComponent implementation, which will allow you to circumvent this problem easily. Additionally, AbstractComponent removes the need for the repetitive work that traditionally goes with implementing a full featured, spec-compliant component. Have a look at the Component Developer Guide for a detailed description.


Tinder 1.2 no longer depends on Openfire-specific logging. Instead, Simple Logging Facade is used, which will allow you to integrate with your existing logging framework easily. Finally, caching strategy and implementation have been modified to give you better performance.


A detailed list of changes can be found in the Tinder Release Notes. Did I mention that starting with 1.2 we're releasing the code under the Apache 2.0 license?
