if there is NO Client Control plugin installed in OpenFire, spark tries to get update information from the jive server.
it sends a html post query to http://www.igniterealtime.org/updater/updater with the hidden field os='windows' (or whatever).

jive will answer with the following for windows:

<Version>
<version>2.6.0</version>
<updateTime>1304924944000</updateTime>
<downloadURL>http://s3.amazonaws.com/jive/spark/spark_2_6_0.exe</downloadURL>
<changeLogURL>http://www.igniterealtime.org/updater/changelog.jsp</changeLogURL>
</Version>

if the version from the request is bigger, than the version number from spark it tries to download the newer version from the downloadURL tag.
that seems to be a problem, because there is no spark release on http://s3.amazonaws.com/jive/spark/spark_2_6_0.exe .
also the changeLogURL http://www.igniterealtime.org/updater/changelog.jsp could not be resolved.

I have already commented in the forums. I don't think this is a blocker, and i think automatic update feature can be dropped. This is hard to test in the real environment. And this is the only thing which is "broken" at this point.
