Spark 2.7.2 Released

Posted by wroot Champion Aug 31, 2015

The Ignite Realtime community has released Spark 2.7.2 for general availability and it can be downloaded from Ignite Realtime: Downloads (Note: there are no working Mac OS X installer as our current build environment has no working setup for Mac, also Spark has lots of issues on the current Mac OS versions and the community has no active Mac OS developers willing to step in).

 

It's another small update containing a few fixes and minor new features.

 

This is the complete list of changes in this version (official changelog):

 

https://igniterealtime.org/issues/browse/SPARK-1615 - Update bundled JRE with the latest version (this time built-in Java has been bumped to the latest official Java 8 version (1.8.0_60). Also for the first time Spark has been built using Java 8. Java 7 is finally dropped in all areas of Spark. Hopefully switching to Java 8 will improve performance and stability).

https://igniterealtime.org/issues/browse/SPARK-1458 - Spark prepends the default status text to a custom one

https://igniterealtime.org/issues/browse/SPARK-1614 - Add an option to show seconds in a message time stamp

https://igniterealtime.org/issues/browse/SPARK-1619 - Add an option to use Spark version as a resource (some administrators will appreciate this, as they would be able to see what version of Spark their users are using by looking at the Sessions page in Openfire's Admin Console).

https://igniterealtime.org/issues/browse/SPARK-1622 - Add options to default.properties to use hostname or version as resource (a way to enforce usage of these options)

https://igniterealtime.org/issues/browse/SPARK-1621 - Add a caption "0 = infinite" to the duration option of Roar popups

 

There is still no Project Lead developer for Spark (no active developers at all actually). So there won't be a regular schedule of releases. But you can always share your patches on the GitHub. If you find new issues, you can report them in the forums and we will at least file them in the bug tracker for the future developers to tackle.
