Although the XMPP Standards Foundation runs its own standards process and publishes a dedicated specification series for XMPP extensions, we continue to work within the Internet Engineering Task Force on relevant specifications, which we mirror at xmpp.org for convenient access.
Lately we have updated several of the RFCs and Internet-Drafts we are working on within the IETF:
- draft-saintandre-rfc4622bis — this document corrects several errors in RFC 4622, which defines the xmpp: URI scheme (a handy diff from RFC 4622 is here)
- draft-saintandre-jabberid — this document defines the Jabber-ID email header, which enables you to specify your XMPP address in the email messages you send
- draft-saintandre-xmpp-simple — this document, which describes interworking between XMPP and SIMPLE for basic IM and presence, shows our continued commitment to open communication (an informal last call is in progress on the discussion list of the IETF’s SIMPLE WG)
- draft-ietf-sieve-notify-xmpp — this document, an official work item of the IETF’s Sieve WG, defines how to generate XMPP notifications for receipt of new email (and more) using the Sieve email filtering language
