New XMPP library for CF 7 & 8

There is an updated tech note that has just been published that updates the library (smack.jar) used for the XMPP Event Gateway in ColdFusion.

This fixed jar adds the following:
  • Adds compatibility with Ignite Openfire XMPP server
  • Fix for missing realm in SASL/Digest-MD5 challenge response
  • XMPP/Jabber 1.0 specification compliance
  • Increased connection timeout from 5 to 15 seconds (helps reduce connection failures for very busy XMPP servers)
  • Includes SASL/Plain support for servers requesting SASL/PLAIN such as Google Talk
  • Added SASL/Digest-MD5 support
Some of these fixes are in ColdFusion 8, some are in CFMX 7.0.2. Basically, if you are running the XMPP gateway in ColdFusion MX 7 or in ColdFusion 8, you want this new jar.

Read the technote here.
