During this outage the operating system will be patched and the Openfire XMPP server will be upgraded to [version 3.9.1](http://www.igniterealtime.org/builds/openfire/docs/latest/changelog.html) from the current version of 3.8.2. More disk space will also be added to this virtual machine, and the SSL certificate for jabber.eecs will be modified to try to work around a bug in iChat. These extra tasks will likely stretch out the downtime to close to one hour.

jabber.eecs had its operating system patched, more disk space added, and had the latest version of Openfire installed. Unfortunately the SSL experiment was not successful and will have to be retried another time.
