Welcome to Extended Conversation, the official weblog of the XMPP Standards Foundation (XSF). Although many members of the Jabber/XMPP community have their own individual blogs (syndicated at Planet Jabber), here we will post news and views from the XSF itself: information about XMPP-related standards work within the IETF, notices about XMPP extensions that have been published or advanced within the XSF, updates about XSF initiatives such as the intermediate certification authority, and more. Those who develop Jabber/XMPP technologies have long cherished both freedom of conversation and the ability to extend those technologies in innovative ways, and we will continue that tradition here. So welcome — and let’s continue the conversation together!
