Wouldn't it be great if your favourite XMPP Server was almost about to make a major release? Well, stop imagining, and start downloading, because Openfire 4.0.0 has reached Beta status!

 

This means that while we're quite sure there's bugs to be found, we believe the server is stable enough to use for formal testing and careful use in non-critical production environments (which means, basically, we're using it on igniterealtime.org itself and our own servers).

 

So if you're keen to help make this the best Openfire release we've ever made, then download, install, and keep us posted in the chatroom at open_chat@conference.igniterealtime.org
