Today I've upgraded to Openfire 3.6.1 (previously 3.6.0a), but it seems that my open bugs are still unresolved (also checked with svn trunk update log).
See for reference my previous topics at:
Feel free to test my patches and integrate them in the next stable release
Removing the 'fix version' for all unresolved issues that were scheduled for version 7.8.2. We're releasing this version today - the remaining issues should be rescheduled later.
asked on forum if this issue is still valid
Speedy, you have thoughts on this?
it appears this has already been added some where down the line. The web interface will show users names escaped.
the current ldapmanager.java contains
// Add this to the result.
results.add(escapeJIDs ? JID.escapeNode(result) : result);
So I think this can be closed, however I did notice few issues in regards to usernames with special char like '@'. with the search plugin, and when adding an admin user in the setup wizard.
